The Last Anniversary~


On February 4, 1984 we said "We do." From that moment on "We did." 27 years later we look back and say "We tried", but it wasn't enough. Letting go is harder for some than others, but in the end it is the only way to go forward. This I understand now, "I do." So when it was all that was left to do, "I did." Looking back I know that above all else, "I tried" even though it wasn't enough.
On my own now I look to the future with eager eyes and think "I can!" I wake each morning with a new goal and say "I will!" Each night as I fall into bed, it is with the satisfaction of knowing that "I did".
And I am happy again with who "I am".

This video was originally posted on February 4, 2006 in celebration of my 22nd Anniversary.

So glad that through those 27 years you tried your best. So glad that you are doing your best ... for you ... now.

Being happy with who you are now is the most important. Enjoy your weekend.

When the dust settled, the shock wore off and reality settled in I saw with clarity that while I have lost my husband and lover, I still have a very close friend in him and that makes it all worth it.
Of course there's the kids too~ All I can say is I'm glad they're old enough to buy their own toilet paper because I would never be able to support their butts on my paycheck!

I watched this video when it was originally posted. Yes, I've been around that long. I cried then, too. Hugs and pats on the back to you.

P.S. The video made me cry too watching it, but it's nice to know you two are still friends. My sis and her ex are that way. It's very sad that is not always the case.
