Twenty years ago, on this day, in a very small civil ceremony, the Lovely Melis and I joined our lives together legally.
I gave the Lovely Melis my heart a number of years prior to that day, and I am thankful for the gift of her heart in return.
Our lives together have not been untroubled, but these words, which I first put down here eight years ago, still ring true.
I will not state we are soul mates, because we are not. I will not state that I need the Lovely Melis, because I do not. What I will state is that the Lovely Melis is an individual whose company I thoroughly enjoy, whose appeal to my senses is still sharp, whose respect I continue to strive for, and whose beauty continues to blossom like a well cellared bottle of red wine.
Happy Anniversary, Melis. You are my love.
Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful day for you both and for your family also! Many happy returns.Posted by DeAnn on 11/12 at 09:16 AM
