Wedding anniversaries (or Hang In There!)

How do you honor the day that you committed your life to another? Each year I appreciate my marriage more and more and grow more sensitive to how I spend our anniversary. I didn't want to go out among a bunch of people I don't know for something to eat that I could have made better at home. And I didn't want to spend the day cooking to host a dinner party, so we just played it cool. We spent the day together as a family, as we do most days since we work from home and are home pre-schooling our baby girl. But for me, a day together without the stresses of work was like a vacation or honeymoon. We had another couple and their child over for turkey burgers and fries and my girl helped me cook so it was fun. The men talked each others ears off and the children played themselves sleepy. I spent a good portion of last week pondering how our relationship has changed this year and I am grateful that we made it to this day. We had major drama at the beginning of the year and I almost gave up. Too often people in relationships give up just before it gets good. And for us...right now is GOOD, real good. Like A.H. says, "Even if we fuss and fight, try till we get it right. You are my life, I can't let go."
Enjoy...(after the brief commercial :o)
