Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary – together.
What a blessing, and so nice. Some of our past anniversaries we spent away from each other. Alcohol was in the way. This year we were able to celebrate our loving, our mountain wedding which was probably the most fun thing I’ve ever done – we laughed because of the blizzard that caught us off guard – and we also celebrated our perseverance. We’ve both been through some tough trials because of alcoholism. And the 12 Step programs, other programs, therapy, and our Higher Powers keep us moving forward. I have learned about love through it all.
Love isn’t what I thought it would be. Mainly it’s a lesson in letting go of expectations, being grateful for the blessings and especially the little moments in each new day, and in patiently learning not to take everything so seriously. Sometimes I wonder if our trials have made me more numb emotionally during the tough times. Instead, it seems my ability to detach and lighten up about everything have really just improved. I’m so much easier to be around. My husband is too. We have so much to be grateful for in our time together. And the miracle is, he is still teaching me new things about love. Thank You God!
