I Had No Idea It Would Happen So Quickly

When two teenagers were joined in Holy Matrimony at the Church of Christ in Marble Falls on the Saturday afternoon in a small ceremony with family and friends attending, never did I realize that one day fifty years later would ever get here. Of course I hoped to always be married to the same woman, but a 50th Anniversary just seemed so far out in the future I couldn’t visualize what that would look like.

Well it’s here and we will be celebrating this evening. My 4 daughter in laws worked on a nice big party that would include family and many friends. A Grand Affair, at least for us.

Unfortunately I had to ask that we put a lid on those plans a couple of weeks ago. I feel like a real heel because the girls had come together with some fantastic plans.

I had hoped that I would find relief from my shoulder situation and be able to enjoy such a celebration. But that wasn’t to be. Being around a lot of people while doped up like a zombie just wasn’t in the cards. So we shall enjoy a much abbreviated party here at home with a small gathering of our close family this evening. They all know what an a-hole I can be when I don’t feel well, so no surprises.

Back to the fifty years. If ask back in the beginning if I had a goal of how long this would all last, I would say “I just hope we can see our 50th”. But now that it is here I would really like to stretch it into another 10 or 20 years. I kind of enjoy hanging out with this ol gal. I think I found a goodun. The only thing I really question about my wife is why she stuck it out with me. There had to have been an easier way. And I’m serious about that.
