Happy Anniversary

April 26th, was
our 9 year Wedding Anniversary.

Although I spent all day with James
it was not particularly romantic.

I was undergoing a catheter ablation for
a pesky irregular heartbeat condition I have 
had the fortune of developing....not!

We exchanged cards 3 days later, as
 I came out of the fog.

We didn't exchange gifts, although, we never have.

And this is why....

On a daily basis we give each other the 
gift of EACH OTHER.

The gift of unconditional love.
The gift of unwavering support.
The gift of humor.
The gift of compassion and empathy.
The priceless gift of loyalty and friendship.

My husband took a chance on me over 9 years ago.
He never batted an eyelash when I told 
him about my brain tumor and ever since has been
in my corner for each and every triumph and challenge.

I admire and love him so much. 

I am profoundly lucky and so proud to be his wife!

Hi Trish, Happy anniversary! I am sorry for your health concerns but so glad for medical technology and good drs. and nurses who help us live longer and better lives. I also firmly believe in the power of prayer. May God richly bless you, James, and Sophie!

Hello Trish
Well, look at you two smooching and hamming it up for the camera. A very happy anniversary my friend and wishes for many more.
You must wonder if you're being tested at times to see how much you can endure. I know you have a positive attitude and the support of a great husband and sweet daughter so you will face these challenges together.
See you for tea on Tuesday.

Sending you best wishes for a happy anniversary and good health. My husband also recently went through a catheter ablation , so I know how debilitating it can be. Hope you are feeling well and getting back to some routine.

Happy Anniversary to your and your hubby. When a loved one is there for your during the hard times, you are really aware of how much they care. I'm glad you have someone to hold your hand through all of the health problems.
