Which amazing day?
On the prompt for Blogging for Scrapbookers today, Shimelle said we should think back to one of the most amazing day of our lives.
But how can I choose which day was an amazing day? Was it the day I met David, was it the day (not so long after) that I realised I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, was it the day we got married or was it the day that Gracia was born? How do I choose because they were all amazing days. Just thinking about them all makes my heart swell with happiness and gratitude for all our little family have.
I was in a pub with a group of friends when I met him, I thought he was offhand and he thought I was loud, we later discovered that he was deep and thoughtful and I was fun and exuberant - same people but different perceptions and these character traits are the ones that made us love each other.
I was riding a bike, a tandem in fact - with David on the front, when I realised that he was the one and that I must do everything possible to hold on to him.
I didn't want to get married, at the time I didn't feel it was necessary, but am so glad that we did and although there were many people who were sure it wouldn't last - here we are 25 years on.
I wanted a daughter so much and when Gracia finally came along she completed our family and is the cement to our foundation stones.
How can I choose which was an amazing day - I am so lucky spending time with those two and now Gracia's Josh has joined our little family almost every day has its amazing moments. I don't have an amazing day but an amazing life.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Reminding myself of how fortunate we all are to have each other.
2. Today was warm and sunny - perhaps spring has arrived.
3. Spaghetti and meatballs for tea - yum.
