Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 263 – Love

img_00411

“Falling in love is not a choice. To stay in love is.”

John Spence

Thank you, Spidey, for finding something for me to think about, that is not virus related!

Only the blessed find love – not true.

I think love can find us all.

It’s only the blessed who can keep that love going strong.

And I do count myself as one of those blessed ones.

Last week, Hubby Dearest and I hit our 23rd date-iversary, i.e. twenty three years since we started officially dating.

And we make a point to mark that date, as importantly as we do our wedding anniversary, and the birth of our children.

Twenty three years ago began the illicit journey of our love, that turned respectable, as soon as we were officially engaged and then married.

Illicit because we started dating in university. Not something to shout out about, especially at that time, in our culture

Things are different now. Younger people from our background are more open about their relationships, and I am happy that they are able to share their happiness with everyone, withut feeling like they need to hide.

Twenty three years together have seen a lot of ups and downs; a whole heap of happiness, sprinkles of sadness, but a huge amount of love that keeps on growing.

Here’s to many more years of love that grows, however hard we have to work ❤

The beautiful bouquet I received ❤

So… tell me, where, on your journey of love, are you?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week! ❤

    It’s the perfect time to remind someone about how much they mean to you – and to be warm and caring about neighbors we know and ones we don’t…we are all in this together and together we will make it through!

    Glad you mark that special day. You two are adorable! Beautiful bouquet–he did a great job. My 16th wedding anniversary is in just a few days, so my husband and I will be postponing any real celebrations. But I’m thinking a weekend away will be in order. First, we isolate ourselves and pray for the best!

    Congratulations. Ritu!. As to my ‘take’ on love? (I almost feel guilty being so old and so-long married…) It amazes me – totally – how so many years can pass in relative harmony and contentment (with the odd yelling in between…) but not a bruise to show… I’ d say the four outstanding saviours have been love/friendship, patience, kindness and humour. Hugs xx
