Celebrating 15 Years of Marriage

A foundation built on

love kindness

empathy respect

strengthened by the desire

to move through life together

*

Tested by unexpected forces

proof we are better together

*

United by belief

in each other

in our friendship

in our love

David & I at our wedding reception October 9 2004

I have struggled to articulate in this blog post what 15 years of marriage to David means to me, so penned the above words in an effort to do so. They fall short of what I feel but I cannot keep writing & deleting or I’ll be at my computer forever! I did consider posting something totally unrelated to our wedding anniversary today but that would feel like I wasn’t being true to myself. We aren’t actually celebrating today; I’ve got dress rehearsal tonight for Friday’s aerial showcase so we’ve decided to pick another day in October to celebrate. Maybe by then I’ll have something decent to share in a blog post 🙂

My Hands

Holding me upright on my bike

Left hand holding a pen to write

Pulling me up on a hoop to do aerial tricks

Holding my camera, capturing light

Working with my legs to keep me on a pole

Holding dog leads as we walk as a pack

Creating things, holding fear, showing love.

My hands.
