Who am I?
I stop to think about this quite often. I stop to think about this nearly every day. As I pause to think on it I realize I am constantly growing and changing. I learn so many new things every day - about myself, about the world around me, about life and all its pieces, including death. Though there is so much that changes there are also parts that seem constant - love surrounding me, wonderful family, and wonderful friends. The people that love me may change, the amount of that love may change but there is always love.
This is a year of many celebrations for our family. Greg and I both turn 50 this year. Our daughter turns 16 in September on the 11th. My parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and Greg and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. While these celebrations are note worthy I also try to remind myself that every moment, every day is a celebration.
Angels be with you as you celebrate the moments of your own life,

My very dear Greg

I'm still not sure who I am! But at least I do think about it, too.

Congratulations on all your celebrations....even the small ones that happen each day.

PS - my hubby and I share the same anniversary as your parents - June 24th - but we've only been married 12 years.

Beautiful writing Wendy, and I hope Greg thoroughly enjoyed his celebrations :) Strangely, my (ex)husband's birthday was on 22 July (still is, I assume!)
Hope you're thinking happy thoughts..
Love & Hugs for all the family,
Suze xXx
