Jon and I are leaving the farm for a day to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. In my life before Jon, I was not a great fan of men in general. I knew few nice ones and was surrounded by relationships that seemed to be bound by something other than love. As I found love with Jon and became happier with my life, I began to meet and hear of couples who were actually in love with each other. Some were second marriages, others had been together for 40 years or more, but the love was true. I began to meet more and more kind and good men, men I never knew existed. I realize they were always there, but when I was unhappy and unloved and closed up, I just couldn’t see them. So when Jon and I celebrate our Anniversary, we’re celebrating not only our love, but the love that comes with an open heart that reaches beyond the two of us and wraps it’s arms around all who choose to enter it.
