Flowers, We've Got Flowers, We've Got Lots and Lots of Flowers

An anniversary spanning three-plus decades of marriage deserves celebration.

My hubs and I just passed such a triumph. 

Because we both love flowers, that's what we gave each other. Lots and lots of flowers.

One of my dear sisters sent us money inside an anniversary card. So what did I buy with it?  More flowers!

This anniversary week (I also believe in extending celebrations), we have a huge bouquet of multicolored magnificent roses on the kitchen table.

Also, a vase filled with fragrant lilies with one sweet pink rose in the middle graces a table in the front hallway.

A deliciously fragrant pink hyacinth sits on a corner table in the hallway.

Looking at the multi-colored roses, my hubs said, "The different colors represent all the years of our marriage."

There were good years and horrid ones----years we want to remember forever and years we are quite happy to forget.

That's what marriage is like and that's what life is like, too. It's a mixture of good and bad times.

When all those years are shared by two people who love each other, life is, in the final analysis, an incredible journey and a precious, priceless gift.  

My heart fills with the deepest imaginable gratitude to God when I look at my dear hubs and our anniversary flowers.  

Now, on to the next decade!

Susan, Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! What a beautiful way to celebrate, with flowers, especially roses! What you said about marriage is SO true...some times are good, wonderful, great, etc.....and some are just awful! But when you love each other and are willing to make it works! Hugs!

"Oh how we danced on the night we were wed...we gave our sweet vows though a word wasn't said"...those are the words from an anniversary song that I love. Mom used to sing it in Polish...Happy Anniversary Susan!

Happy Anniversary, Susan!

I love roses, and went to the local Botanical Garden yesterday.

I have been married 50 years so I wish you the very same. The both of you.

Those roses are so beautiful!

Roses to me are all part of romantic to remind us. How very blessed we are. As couples.
