Nine years

Yesterday marked one year of wedded bliss between Jeff and myself. Much more happiness and oh-so-cool levels of awesomeness from not only the day before with the WIN at SCOTUS, but even more so seeing quite a few couples here, not to mention countless others everywhere else getting married on our same day. We're proud to be a part of the "anniversary surge" that will inevitably occur.

As such things go in my life, with much celebration also comes much sadness. Today marks the ninth year from the day I lost my mother to cancer. I know she would be enthusiastically taking part in all this celebrating were she still with us. It was quite by accident as we were planing our big day and how it best would fit in with the plans of ourselves and our guests. It was only after we had gained some momentum that I realized these two dates fell next to each other. As it turned out, because of the slip-up, a good part of our wedding celebration was made to include a tribute to our moms, who couldn't be there with us in the seats, but who were definitely there is everyone's hearts.

I miss you so much.

All the best to you fellas!

And yes, it would have been nice for mom to be part of it...so sorry she's not, but I'm sure she's celebrating above!

I am in tears .... I am so touched by your love and devotion for your mother. I share that devotion. Though, my mother has been gone less than two years, I am doing ok. However, I am forever sad that if I ever meet someone again and would want to get married, she will not have known that person or of my commitment to that person. I have a tendency to keep closer to the people who knew my parents ... more trusting ....

Happy Anniversary.

Big hugs, my friend!

Congratulations on your first year of weddedness to Jeff! While we've never met in person (something I hope we can correct soon), I find myself smiling ear-to-ear for the happiness you bring to one another. Be happy you lucky dog!
