Twenty eight years

Happy 28th Anniversary 

Marriage is a lot like riding a bike ...

You have to invest lots of energy to keep going .

Look after each other; a well oiled and maintained bike will ride more smoothly and change gear easily

Explore, enjoy new adventures and appreciate the old routes.

Don’t just be fair weather riders , brave the rain and storms, for sunshine and rainbows  will follow if you hang in there

Endure the obstacles and mountains , the hill climb may be long and you won’t always see what is ahead . Ride together with passion, love and forgiveness to reap the rewards of the downhills!

Keep pedalling down the road of life to reach the destination together - same goals -remember you are on the same team.

If you make it to end of the trail and have survived the bumps and flat tyres - fist pump ! 

***

Life doesn't always go as planned , sometimes the storms come to clear the path not disrupt life. We've seen more than our fair share of storms. Just saying ...




28th wedding anniversary gift from my hubstar.


It was such a thoughtful gift with my new love of all things cycling.

Plus 120 pegs because you can never have enough pegs 


Still love his wicked sense of humour.






I did not write this just a friend posted it to Facebook yesterday and I thought it was worth copying and passing on....it's very true and the timing is perfect.

For some people so eager to call it quits and throw in the towel on your relationships because everything isn’t “perfect”...here is some food for thought.
Lifelong commitment is not what most people think it is. It's not waking up every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed until both of you fall asleep, peacefully, at night. It's not a clean home filled with laughter and lovemaking, everyday.
It's someone who steals all the covers. It's slammed doors and a few harsh words, at times. It’s stubbornly disagreeing and giving each other the silent treatment until your hearts heal...and, then...forgiveness!
It's coming home to the same person, everyday, that you know loves and cares about you in spite of (and because of) who you are. It's laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. 
It's about dirty laundry and unmade beds WITHOUT finger pointing. It's about helping each other with the hard work of life! It's about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud.
It's about eating the easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10 p.m. to eat because you both had a crazy day. 
It's when you have an emotional breakdown and your Love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay...and you BELIEVE them. It's about still loving someone even though, sometimes, they make you absolutely insane.

Living with the person you love is not perfect...sometimes it's hard; but it's amazing and comforting and one of the BEST things you'll ever experience.

Go ahead and share a picture of the person you love and copy and paste this as your status. Make their day...and yours! ❤️


Then there is always Therapy to help if you are struggling !!! 

PS My sincere thoughts go to those both who wish to experience ‘this’ and for those whom their marriage / relationship had their own reasons for ending. Namaste ­čÖĆ
