31 years

31 years ago today I woke up excited and happy.
31 years ago today, I showered and put on my own makeup and did my own hair and pulled the dress I made myself (with my mother's help) over my head.
31 years ago today, I had daisies in my hair holding a veil made with lace sewn on by hand
31 years ago today I rode to the church with my Uncle Bud in his car
31 years ago today, I stood in the vestibule of the church feeling the beat of my heart quicken and my smile grow to encompass my entire face
31 years ago today, I looked down that aisle and saw the love of my life standing there waiting for me.
31 years ago today, we pledged to love and cherish each other through "sickness and in health, for richer or poorer till death do us part" and so far, we've lived up to that pledge.
31 years ago today, a priest pronounced us Husband and Wife and the bride was kissed and the couple walked down the aisle toward their future.

Today, that couple rode the train into work like any ordinary day because marriages are made up of ordinary days.  They worked their full work days and then made a date to have dinner together.  There were emails back and forth reminding each other "I'm thinking of you right now" and "I love you" but those are the things of everyday, too.

Thank you, my love for 31 wonderful years.
