By the grace of God, that knot is still tied, and we've lived out our marriage vows to the fullest. Better and worse, richer and poorer, sickness and health: we've had them all. For a long time now it's been more sickness and less health (and even less money), but still we manage to enjoy life together. Thirty-two years since I met him, almost twenty-eight since I married him, and Mr. M is still my favourite person and my best friend. If I could choose to spend a day with anyone on earth, I'd choose him.
Two quotes come to mind when I think of our life as it is today. The first is by Maria von Trapp: "We're not poor - we just don't have any money." The second is by L.M. Montgomery: "...It don't never matter how poor you are as long as you've got something to love."

And Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!
Who is your favourite person? (It need not be a spouse or lover.) How did you meet?
