24 years....

Today, is my wedding anniversary to my sweetie Robert. Twenty four years. We are still in love, we still hold hands, we still go on dates and we still snuggle, from time to time on the couch. He tucks me in at night before going to the other room for a late night snack, and he still kisses me good bye each morning and hello each evening.

 He will cook a meal for himself, even after a 12 -14 hour day, knowing cause of my health issues by that time I am spent. He helps with the house work, and never complains about it. In fact I am usually the one that says he should have left it for me to do. He always puts me first before himself. And goes out of his way to make me happy, not always an easy job. He rubs my rough feet and soothes the muscles in my aching neck and shoulders, even when he would rather not and is tired and sore himself. He sleeps on the couch cause he snores, and with my fibro I toss and turn all night, but fear not our romance has not died because of it.

Life has not always been easy. We have survived loosing his parents when we were in our 20's . Been through many job changes, two bankruptcies due to job loss, moving to Texas and then moving back to California. Raising three daughters, and what a roller coaster adventure that was!  Loosing our dream home and everything that meant something to us , and this past two years of financial and emotional hell that is still on many ways still going on. We deal with my health issues, and what they could mean as the years pass, and what they have meant in the years that have already gone by.

We have fallen in and out of love many times, could not stand to be around each other and been frustrated and furious with each other, and sadly there was times we went to bed mad and woke the same way. But through it all, we have stuck together, become stronger, wiser ( we hope) and closer because all that we have experienced and no matter what we go through, it IS death til we part.
