When you’ve been married 36 years it’s difficult coming up with that perfect anniversary gift for your wife which speaks straight from the heart. Something she doesn’t have. Something she doesn’t expect. Something which makes her blush just a bit…and believe me…I love to make her blush. Well here it is…my homemade anniversary gift card posted on a public website. It may bore my readers…but there’s only a handful anyway…so here it goes.
Leslie, did you know when an article is posted on the internet it stays there forever. Yes…after the world ends as we know it, the only things remaining will be cockroaches and articles posted on the internet. So you might say this 36 year anniversary gift will be one which will just keep on giving…forever.
Baby, the past 36 years have been “crazy good.” I could go on and on about the wonderful times we’ve had and are still having. I could write a thousand words about our kids…but this is about how I feel about you.
The moment I met you 42 years ago in our high school cafeteria I knew you were out of my league…but that didn’t stop me…and I thank God every day for that. As a matter of fact…being married to you has given me the confidence to live my entire life out of my league. Baby you changed who I was into who we are…you know what I’m talking about. It’s been the best gift ever.
The chorus of the song I wrote for you several years ago sums it up pretty well.
All I want is to share your present moment.
Time stands still, when it’s just you and me.
Doesn’t matter where we are when we’re together.
Cause in your moment babe is where I want to be.
I have always been a man of music. It expresses in ways I can’t. Thus the following is apropos.
Happy 36th anniversary baby! I bet you didn’t see this coming.
