this week DH and I celebrated our silver wedding anniversary. The date on which our anniversary falls on is special for 3 reasons. It was the date we started to see each other, then married on that date and then a few years later he had one of three life saving operations on this date. So we celebrate this special date for not just one but for three reasons and I always count my blessings that I met him and
still have him . This year he also survived yet another life saving operation in March ....... So this
December and Christmas, well it means so much. We always talk about our wedding day... It snowed so was a white wedding ...... Not only the dress and theme...... We were married in the church where I went with my Dad and siblings every Sunday , also where several of my siblings married too....lots of memories . I remember a few months before we married a colleague also married and she told me her wedding day went so quick and she just forget to "take it all in" I remembered that and I can say hand on heart , I enjoyed every second, I did have one of the best days of my life and remember it all.
We always buy something for our home on our anniversary, this year a clock to celebrate and record the passing of time. Unbeknown to me DH also bought me a silver miniature sewing kit....he knows how I love my hobbies , especially sewing and thought in time it might be something I might I like to add to and collect other miniature pin cushions.
Hard though it was I managed to stitch this throughout the last year....
better.. Thank goodness he did.
Funny how something so simple ,somehow for me ,helped me to remain positive ..... for a little bit of time , took my mind away from the day to day goings on. Sometimes we all need that sort of distraction I think. DH loved it, he laughed and asked how I had made it without him seeing it...I told him it was part of a cunning plan!!!! we now have to decide where to hang it.
Elsewhere it is certainly beginning to look like Christmas .
