Diary 174

Tuesday, September 8th

Sometimes I gaze at Facebook and notice all the anniversaries – this couple celebrating perhaps 5 years, that one 45 years – and I’m rather disappointed that I can’t write anything much more than “Happy Anniversary”.  That’s what one says, after all.

Yet what strikes me is that here are two people who have elected to get together, stay together, and work through the inevitable challenges that come along, and they’ve done so to the best of their abilities. It’s admirable, yes, and it’s also inspiring in the deepest sense.

So when I type “Happy Anniversary” I hope you’ll know that it comes with profound admiration for your achievement over those years.
