Happy Anniversary to Me!

Today is my 24th wedding anniversary. (yeah, yah, yah...it's also Elvis' birthday! Every year the same thing....who cares already?! LOL! The guys been dead at least 24 yrs!) DH is 145 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil rig (his first time out there) and so I am celebrating alone. I went to my quilt meeting and am enjoying some microwave popcorn! Last night I wondered if DH would call me today as I haven't heard from him since the day I assumed he caught a helicopter to the rig. (the weather had been bad and they were unable to go out on the scheduled day) But then I realized, that no matter where he is, no matter how he would need to accomplish it, he would call me today because he never lets me down. Oh, I've been mad, disappointed, hurt and ready to just bean him many times, but when it's the important stuff, he has never let me down. True to form, he called. Had to use a satellite phone, try three times to get the connection right (phone rang but no one was there!), heard only every 4th word or so, but he got through. ...just like I knew he would.

I have many thoughts today. Because you can't cut and paste when you are writing and I am too lazy to rewrite this, I'm just going to continue on....pretend they are two separate posts.


I just finished reading Margil's blog and had some thoughts...We all start out by saying "I don't know who would want to read about my life/thoughts/projects ect. But her blog struck me at just how little we get to know people that we only see once in a while and how we get a different insight into one another with the written word. In this world of instant, we are writing letters again. Maybe they are in a setting that our grandparents would not understand but putting thoughts to paper are putting thoughts to paper. We aren't necessarily sending one letter to one individual but these are letters just the same. We transmit our happiness and sadness, joys and disappointments, not just our quilting, and it isn't at all dull to read about. We learn so much about each other. We learn how similar we all really are and that is interesting.

I always forget to write what I'm grateful for...what does that say?! But tonight, I am grateful for a good husband and hope I have at least another 26 years with him...we can keep the 50yrs. married tradition going...My grandparents, his grandparents and earlier this year, his mom and dad.

Happy anniversary, and what an amazing tradition to have!

I enjoyed reading your thoughts about blogs=letters. I hadn't thought about it that way, and that is one of the wonderful things about blogging - thinking about things in a new way.

You said, talking about Elvis, "The guys been dead at least 24 yrs!"

Well, here in Memphis, there are some people who'd argue with you... lol
