When we married in Virginia this day many
moons ago, it was mild and overcast. Intermittent
rain. Several years later in another state, we have
snow. How did the thirty-eight years pass so quickly?
Two wonderful angels later, we sit indoors and
reminisce and are astounded at how fast the years
flew by. We saved a wishbone to make a wish.
growing up in a household with four girls, we
often fought over who could get the wishbone
when our mother had made a turkey. Taking
turns did not come easily, but by the time the
wishbone had dried sufficiently, we forgot whose
turn was next. Customs and traditions remain.
As one of our gifts, we received fresh fish from
the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle. Salmon,
oysters and halibut. Red roses and card on the
dining room table, we will have a romantic
anniversary dinner for two and watch the snow
fall much like ivory snow. Fluffy flakes and birds at
the feeder. Closed eyes now, we make a wish!
