People often refer to their wedding day as the happiest day of their life. I guess that means that a marriage starts out on the highest of highs which suggests that everything else is downhill. We told each other before we got married that this was not the way it should be nor is it the way it is. The wedding is symbolic of a commitment to love one another, grow with each other and not give up on each other. In each successive day, week, month and year, that commitment is the mountain that we climb together. So our wedding day is truly just the beginning of our journey, and every step we walk together from that point on is an accomplishment…every anniversary is a major milestone. One day we will reach the top of that mountain…it will be the last day we share in these earthly bodies…and on that day we will be on highest of highs. Happy Anniversay! I love you Valerie.
