wedding anniversary

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary.


American situational comedy tells us it is not unusual for one spouse to not remember the wedding anniversary.


How about when a spouse cannot remember wedding anniversary, year of daughter’s birth or her age, or any other significant family milestones?


Traditional anniversary gift ideas would fall between crystal and china. Yet Patti can have nothing that doesn’t bounce.


Living with MS certainly creates its own ‘traditions’. Safety and attended care are more expensive than crystal or china and far more valuable.


“To have and hold … in sickness and in health …”was specifically left out of our wedding vows by Patti. Because of her recent admittance to a care facility, this is the first wedding anniversary I have actually honored those vow omissions.
