Every day is special
We make it that way

The joy of seeing you smile
Our morning hugs and coffee

Playing games at the table
Sharing cooking duties

Knowing we can count on each other
Committed till death do us part

Our five year anniversary
One precious day at a time

Congratulations!! Once you've been together for 24 years you may find you write something slightly different! :D

Opaque said...

Hey, congratulations!!!

Keep up with the morning hugs - very important!

Brian Miller said...

happy anniversary...the key word, together...everything is better together...congrats!

TechnoBabe said...

LL Cool Joe, Thanks. We hope we have at least 24 years together but at our age we just know we are blessed each day together.

Opaque, We appreciate your caring and supportive words all the time.

Rock Chef, Thank you. Yep, we love our morning hugs and the cool thing is we hug often as we pass each other throughout the day.

Brian, I never in my life liked waking up to a new day like I do with hubby. Thanks for the good wishes.

Jeni said...

Five years together is a good step in the right direction -with the emphasis being on togetherness, I think it definitely increases the odds of having many, many more days-months-years -together!

DJan said...

Congratulations to you both, TB. Smart Guy and I met and married late in life, and it's been the best relationship I have ever had. I remember when it had been five years for us, too. Now we are heading towards twenty.

Lori said...

Congratulations to both of you. It is awesome to share a life together. We have been doing that one day at time for 34 years!

TechnoBabe said...

Jeni, Thanks. We are together so much and I never would have thought I would like being around one person like this every day!

DJan, you give me hope for us being able to celebrate twenty years together. Anyway, however long we get to be together, every day is great. I know you understand too.

Lori, it is a miracle that I am fully in the moment living each day in a happy and loving marriage.

ellen, I remember when you had your 34th anniversary! People like you with so many years are awesome.

Talon, you are such an insightful person. I am so glad you really get the joy I try to describe.

Jeanie, Thank you for your uplifting comment.

anne, you betcha! Thanks.

Syd, you are someone who had lived through some hard times too and have grown into a better person and a better spouse. Your 34 years together are inspiring to the rest of us.

I know you've heard this before but it's worth repeating.
It's not the quantity of time but the quality. A few minutes of bliss is worth more than days of sadness.

Cheryl, sincere thanks.

Lola Sharp said...

Being in love with and loved by a good man is a healing salve beyond any other. Morning hugs are the best. :)

In contrast to your first commenter, I've been married to my husband for 15 years, and he still makes my coffee and breakfast every morning, still tells me I'm beautiful every day with his words and his eyes, we still tell each other we love each other verbally and with our actions many times/day. Best of all he still makes me laugh many times a day...and I make him laugh every day.
If after 24 years it makes me 'write something slightly different', it will only be how much more I adore him and appreciate the gift he is to me. :)

Congrats on the years you've had, on wishes to have many more. :)

I hope y'all are having a wonderful holiday weekend together.
