No Politics on this Day: Celebrating 46 Years of Marriage


Pandemic Diary
Day 168

Dear Diary,

No politics today.

It's my wife, Shirley and I's, forty-sixth Wedding Anniversary. We were married on this day in 1974.

We're going out on a picnic, and if we're lucky, we might find some agates. To ensure a peaceful outing we'll be unconnected from the world for the day.

Our marriage has been a long and twisting journey with it's shares of highs, and lows. One of the reasons we've managed to work things out is that we're best friends.

The challenges we faced would test any marriage, but we've come out stronger, and even more in love after each one. One key to our happiness is communication. I know. It sounds droll. But it's true.

Never go to bed angry at one another.
Don't be afraid to tell the truth, and never lie to one another.
Listening, really listening, to each other.
Saying "I love you" should be said daily anywhere, anytime.

One of greatest joys in life is our children, and our grandchildren. We are so proud of our three grown sons, and our five wonderful grandchildren. 


Life is too short.
I'll be 70 in a couple of months with the realization that it's important to live for each day... not to worry about yesterday, and not to worry about tomorrow. 

Quote for the Day: "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages." -Friedrich Nietzsche
