That's Life

I have written about balance often, about the yin and yang, the happy and sad of is one of those days where there really is the best and worst taking place at once.
This is our 39th, 39 years ago in Brewton, Al stopped at a friend's house on the way to the beach ( he was a minister).  We had one day left on the marriage license before it expired, I had a long gauzy dress, Rick had a velvet sports coat ( hey this was 1974)
and we said I do.  We celebrated with Boone's Farm Strawberry wine and Hostess Twinkies......and then on to Laguna Beach, Fl.  It has been like all marriages, good, bad, fair,
sad, happy and sometimes just holding on......for us, there has been much more good.

Tonight, the sad......I mentioned a few days ago that Buddy was sick.  Buddy was my mom's dog and when she fell, he came to our house to live.  Buddy has cancer and it looks as though
we will be back at the vet's making that decision no one wants to make.  Even though he truly bonded to Rick,  I love him too......and in that weird way, that he was once hers......he is my last link to my mom.

So......a good day, a bad day......that's life.....a good marriage, a good dog.  I am a lucky woman.
