This week Chuck and I are celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. Thanks to the graciousness of a couple in our church we are spending the week in a condo in the mountains and we are having a fabulous time. Some of our accomplishments have been:
Not using an alarm clock. At all.
Looking for constellations while relaxing in the hot tub.
Taking a hike on an old logging road in the rain.
Sitting in front of a real snapping, popping fire in the fireplace.
Knitting. Lots and lots of knitting.
Watching it snow.
Watching lots of movies.
Watched the series finale of both Lost and 24 on a very large screen tv.
Ate a pot of the best chicken and wild rice soup ever.
Reviewed the past 32 years.
Dreamed about our future plans.
Calculated that in another 32 years I will be 83 and he will be 86.
Planned to start a new savings account for our next trip to Hawaii.
Sat together on the same side of a booth in a little local coffee shop.
Marveled that even after being together 24/7 we would still take more of the same.
Counted our blessings.
And realized that God has been so very, very good to us. We are happy. We are blessed. We are in love.
I don't think we can ask for anything more in this lifetime.
