new ways

Carpe Diem Writing and Enjoying Haiku #6 new ways

This has been the year when Hubby and I along with a whole bunch of other folks celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. We actually started the celebration back at the end of June, our actual 'date'.  It continued with a trip to France. Returning home we began working on The Party that was delayed till the grandsons returned from a summer in Canada.

As we have friends our own ages, they, too, are celebrating 50 years.  That means more trips.  Unexpected strength of hurricane Harvey resulted in Hubby and I choosing to downsize even more.  And how do two people stay together for 50 years of marriage?  Well, forgiveness, understanding and a willingness to step together into the unknown of new ways.

fifty years
with the same man
always something new
keeps me guessing
what's next?
