A Sleeve If You Please....
And for all of those in love, especially Grace's daughter who will be wed in 3 days:
The Longly-Weds Know by Leah Furnas
That it isn't about the Golden Anniversary at all,
But about all the unremarkable years
that Hallmark doesn't even make a card for
IT's about the 2nd anniversary when they were surprised
to find they cared for each other more than the last year
And the 4th when both kids had the chickenpox
and she threw her shoe at him for no real reason
And the 6th when he accidentally got drunk on the way
home from work because being a husband and a father
was so damn hard
Its about the 11th and 12th and 13th years when
they discovered they could survive a crises
And the 22nd anniversary when they looked
at each other across the empty nest, and found it good.
Its about the 37th years when she finally
decided she could never change him
And the 38th when he decided a little change wasn't that bad,
Its about the 46th Anniversary when they both bought cards and forgot to give them to each other
BUt most of alln its about the end of the 49th year when they discovered you don't' have to be old to have your 50th Anniversary!
