Good day/Bad day? good
Happy Anniversary (yesterday), my dear! 9 years of wedded bliss. Or of working it out as we go.
(Don't be fooled--we've known each other a lot longer than that. In fact, this year will be the year that I'll have known Ben half my life. We are no longer as young, and I would say we are less dramatic, but this past year has not been consistent with that.)
But, as I said to him during dinner last night (yummy, yummy Sardine!), though neither of us would choose to go through all we've been through this year, there is no one I'd rather have with me through it all...
No matter what, we respect and love each other. We are partners, and though we may take different routes, I know we will end up at the destination together. We find balance, so if one of us is low, the other will raise things up a little, and we see-saw until we get back to the middle. And all this is the stuff of life, what you go through when you care about other people, but I am especially lucky that he has chosen to care about me.
