Happy Anniversary, My Love

imageI am lucky to be blessed with my husband. He is my rock, my salvation. He is strong when I need support and tender when I need love. He is the perfect man for me.

I always love seeing old people together. They are so cute! I think of all the time they have spent together and all the things they’ve experienced. I can’t help but smile.

Whenever I see an old couple, I ask my husband, “Will that be us in a few years?” He says we’ll never be that old. We will always be young at heart.

So, here’s to my husband of twelve years. I love you. Thank you for giving me the best years of my life and looking towards many, many more. I’ve always loved the movie The Wedding Singer – Robbie Hart sang this song to Julia at the end.

I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh all I wanna do is grow old with you

I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I’ll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you’ve had too much to drink
Oh, I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

  1. Hearty Congratulations! πŸ™‚
    There’s a lot of give and take to make a relationship last, but after 12 years you’ve obviously ironed out any wrinkles.
    And what I like about old people is that they know each other so well they’ll eg pass the salt before being asked. πŸ™‚
    Or in my case, work as a team, while we scoop SL’s poop off the kitchen floor!! πŸ™‚ (Very old dog!)
