Some things don’t change, Thank heaven

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX 420

Holding On.

IN the last 36 years, I’ve owned a whole bunch of different cars, moved strata to house to strata to house to strata to house again. Presidents, and Prime Ministers have come and gone. My career has changed. I have picked up, and changed hobbies and sports numerous times.  I have watched our beloved daughter and son go from swing sets to cell phones.

Almost everything has changed, but one thing hasn’t.

I have lost contact with old friends, reestablished contact, and made new friends.

Certainly I know I have changed, but not everything has. I’m a blessed man.

It’s not my anniversary, that was 4 months ago. But this song reminded me of my lovely Susan. It’s been a long time (March 8, 1980) since we drove away from a church in our rusted out Honda Civic, but the journey still continues, and she was the one in 1980, and she’s still the one in 2016.

    This is so brimming with love. Some people fail to express their feelings to their loved ones. They either don’t know how to, or they think it isn’t necessary. There should be more people like you. Hope she reads this. And nice song 🙂

    Sweet love letter! Such a romantic gesture. I’m sure Susan feels the same. Best wishes to you both.
