Yesterday I had one of those AHA moments. I was looking for an anniversary card and the man next to me said, "Did you find a good card?" "Not yet," I replied as I turned to look at him. It was the man from the gym who I have never spoken to but who inspires me to keep on working out. He is at least ninety and continues to work out with gusto. He was a fighter pilot who was shot down but made it home to build an incredible life. (I know all of this from the trainer) I asked him how long he had been married and without hesitation he told me 71 years. He quickly picked a card and was on his way but once again without knowing it he made such a difference in my day. All of a sudden 44 years was not so long. I realized that although my husband and I have experienced and accomplished alot separately and together there is the still the very real possibility of so many more exciting adventures to come if we continue to dream, to think, and to plan big. So today when I think about celebrating our anniversary I take time to look back fondly on all that was, I take time to celebrate the moment and experience that is, and I look forward to the future with anticipation and excitement. Who knows, with the way the world is changing we may be able to celebrate another 44 years. That certainly would be interesting!!
What brought you happiness this week?
