Denny and I take an autumn trip every year to celebrate. Fourteen years ago today, I had surgery for breast cancer. Ten days after the surgery, we married in a sweet ceremony in our backyard by Biscayne Bay. We didn't know then if we'd have one year together, much less fourteen.
The time since has included struggle--illness, hurricanes, and financial issues; along with renewal, new directions and health. We've grown with each other. It seems now as if we've always been together.
Our life in Texas is like that too. Weeds in the lawn, wildflowers next to the driveway.
An anniversary is only one day. But every day is only one day. It's good to remember the start, to renew for tomorrow.
