While we may have only been married for 9 years now, it has certainly been an interesting road we’ve been on with twists, turns, dips, and climbs.

 

 

*~*~*~*~*~*~* ~*

 

Today I took a walk up the street

And picked a flower and climbed the hill above the lake,

And secret thoughts were said aloud.

We watched the faces in the clouds

Until the clouds had blown away.

Were we ever somewhere else?

You know it’s hard to say.

I never saw blue like that before …

 
NEVER SAW BLUE LIKE THAT

There is absolutely no one else with whom I’d rather be on my current life path than you.

 

Happy Anniversary, Roy!

 

I love you!

This is a 2nd marriage for both Roy and me.  I’ve mentioned that before, but it’s still amazing to both of us.  Neither of us wanted another marriage for different reasons, but when it happened for us, it just was right.  Period.

So on this day 8 years after we got married, 12 years after meeting face-to-face, and 13 years after meeting randomly online, I offer this to my husband.

  
He’s always there for me and has continually proved it in not only the best of times but also the worst. 

I love you, Roy.  Happy anniversary.

Papa Roy … I don’t think you have any idea how much I admire you and how much I depend on your love and how much I love you for the man you are as well as for the partner you are to me.

Everyone deserves a partner in life like you are to me.

My baby girl, as I stated a few weeks back, was recently engaged.  We had an engagement party for her yesterday to start the festivities of the next year, since she wants to get married next summer.  In any event, as any of you that have organized weddings or the like in convoluted family situations know, it can be stressful at best … making sure that everyone stays on their best behavior.

We have what they like to call in “PC terms” (my least favorite kind of term and which neither Roy nor I will ever be) a “blended family”.  What that means is that I was divorced after having 3 kids … and then re-married … which means that there’s me (the mother) … Roy (the step-father) … and an ex-husband (the father) … as well as numerous family members that may or may not all get along with each other.  (Some have difficulty being in the same room with each other … and it’s not even my ex-husband, Roy, and me that I’m referring to here, as we can all be civil and friendly, since he and I get along great now that we’re not in the same house.)

In any event, before I get too side-tracked, I am posting this particularly to Roy.

  1. I love you for always being by my side no matter what.
  2. I love you for treating my children as your own no matter what.
  3. I love you for loving my children no matter what.
  4. I love you for being a man and for showing true class no matter what.
  5. I love you for making sure that Kara can have the kind of engagement and wedding she deserves no matter what.
  6. I love you for loving Kara no matter what.
  7. I love you for loving Keegan even though you never met him in person before he died no matter what.
  8. I love you for loving Logan no matter what.
  9. I love you for being a role model for my children no matter what.
  10. I love you for being a partner and soul mate to me no matter what.
  11. I love you for being “Papa Roy” no matter what.
  12. I love you for loving me no matter what (even when I may not deserve it).

So … as we have both nicknamed the other … please bear with me as I say this out of love to Roy …

I love you, my Arrogant Son of a Bitch (I call him my “asob” … pronounced ay-sawb), and I will always be your Pain in the Ass (he calls me his “pita” … pronounced like the pocket bread) … even when it’s “Thursday Night at the Bickersons” … NO MATTER WHAT.

“I see the questions in your eyes.  I know what’s weighin’ on your mind, but you can be sure I know my part, cuz I’ll stand beside you through the years.  You’ll only cry those happy tears, and though I’ll make mistakes, I’ll never break your heart.  I swear!  By the moon and the stars in the sky, I’ll be there.  I swear!  Like the shadow that’s by your side, I’ll be there.  For better or worse, till death do us part, I’ll love you with every beat of my heart.  I swear!  I’ll give you everything I can.  I’ll build your dreams with these two hands, and we’ll hang some memories on the wall, and, when there’s silver in your hair, you won’t have to ask if I still care, cuz, as time turns the page, my love won’t age at all.  I swear!  By the moon and the stars in the sky, I’ll be there.  I swear!  Like the shadow that’s by your side, I’ll be there.  For better or worse, till death do us part, I’ll love you with every beat of my heart.  I swear!  I swear!  By the moon and the stars in the sky, I’ll be there.  I swear!  Like the shadow that’s by your side, I’ll be there.  For better or worse, till death do us part, I’ll love you with every beat of my heart.  I swear!  I swear!”  John Michael Montgomery

5!

Relationships can be tenuous, particularly to those people that are older or that have been previously divorced (as have been Roy and I both). It’s hard to trust and/or love again.

We met online, as was mentioned in an original post, but not in the way most people would think. It was not in a chat room or a dating site. It was like a wrong number, where Roy tried to email a friend near Boston, Massachusetts, from his home near Portland, Maine, and got a wrong email address and emailed me near San Francisco, California. We became online friends, then face-to-face friends, then lovers, then husband & wife.

It started exactly 10 years ago yesterday with the first email. We got married exactly 5 years later on that same date. So yesterday was our 5th wedding anniversary and 10th “since we met” anniversary.

People thought it’d never last. They thought we would never survive 6 months, let alone 5 & 10 years.

We’ve been through some great times and some incredibly rough times together, times that most people would have never survived alone, let alone a fairly new 2nd marriage for us both (since we both swore we’d never get married again after our first marriages).

Yet here we are, our 5th anniversary being yesterday, stronger and tighter together than ever. We’ve proved them all wrong (including ourselves).

I love you, Roy.
