WOW 26 years Living and Loving with this gorgeous man, how blessed am I ??
26 years ago today Jim proposed to me on the romantic island of Navini Fiji, I had know idea, he had planned our whole wedding day, with out my knowledge, what a beautiful surprise. He had the rings, all the legals, even arranged our wedding clothes to be authentic Fijian Tapa cloth, and the flowers were divine, in fact I still have them at home, and on a humid day they still give off a faint island perfume.
There was a wedding feast, blessed by the friendly islanders, he had even arranged a gorgeous wedding cake !!
So it was on this day 26 years ago we danced and celebrated our love as we still do today.
Marriage, may well be unpopular these days, but it means a lot to me, it is not just a piece of paper, to make my commitment to the man I love changes the dynamics of our relationship.
Don’t get me wrong our relationship is just as tough and hard some days as any ones, but it is all worth it, we both enjoy to be challenged, embrace change, and love what ever life throws at us, deep in the knowledge we can always rely on each other.
My guess is trust and respect play a huge roll in our lasting marriage, I never doubt Jim’s word.
I asked Jim this morning as we played in the ocean, did he have a highlight ? his reply was that we didn’t know we would be enjoying where we are today in our lives, being able to embrace the unknown together, on the same team, as one.
I Love my husband more today, as our love grows and changes on a daily basis, I feel truly blessed to have found my soul mate, and to have been able to share my life with him, I look forward to the next however many years, discovering life & love together.
