Words of Worth

69 Years of Wedded Bliss

February 8, 2017

Some people like to write their own wedding vows.

I promise to love you more than I love my credit card. And I promise to love you for richer or poorer as long as your credit card limit stays high.

I promise to never put you or myself in danger. That means I will never come between you and a mirror.

From the moment you entered my world you have filled it with life, color and energy like never before…like a rose garden in a junkyard. You are my rose and I promise to devote my life to being your dirt.

And then some people take the traditional vows of:

 I, ___, take you, ___, for my lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part.” “I, ___, take you, ___, to be my husband/wife.

Sixty-nine years ago today, on a snowy Sunday, my parents exchanged traditional vows of marriage and have kept their covenant all of these years!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! Thank you for being such a wonderful example of steadfast love and commitment for better or worse, richer or poorer, and in sickness and health!
