Always and Forever

When someone bulldozes your white picket fence dreams and you find yourself chanting “lots of people go through life alone” and you secretly vow to never be the lonely “spinster” on the corner. When you are broken, and your heart is reluctant to open to any new possibilities, when you become a divorce statistic. It is hard to believe that love will ever find you again. But……..

Thirteen years ago, my heart opened just enough to be flooded with the warm light of love. Love filled it like a balloon, lifting it high and into the clouds where it still rides gently on the breeze tied securely to the heart of my wonderful husband.

Today is our tenth wedding anniversary and I am sending happy anniversary wishes to the singer of the songs only my heart can hear.

Always and forever you are the true love of my life.

Happy anniversary to my sweet husband Sparky ( Robert) xo

Hoping you all have a lovely weekend.

  20. Happy Anniversary! I can relate. After being “single” for 24 years after a divorce, love found me, too. I wasn’t looking, didn’t think I wanted to ever get married again. Then along came Walt and we just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary. when you least expect it…

    Happy Anniversery. I am glad your happy but its not for everyone and I am most definitly not the “spinster” on the cornor . I have never once experienced being lonely. LIfe is to full of amazing experiences for that. I have never been happier then being in charge of my own life and not dependent on a relationship or a man. Its very empowering. Thank God I never thought of myself in that way after my divorce. I grabbed all I could from life and still do every day! Marriage to me is like a form of slavery, boring and limiting. But good for you sounds like you really need a man in your life. I am so happy I do not. Spinster ! That is word from Victorian times ! Women today are intelligent, empowered and successful.

    • Hello Alexis, thank you for the Happy Anniversary wish and your very spirited comment. You are right marriage is not for everyone. I am sorry you felt the need to burst my happy balloon. But, I appreciate your opinion and I respect that you felt comfortable enough at Katherines Corner to “let it all out” on my anniversary message to my husband. His love gives me great joy. I used the antiquated term “spinster” with a tongue in cheek spirit. I’m not sure how you thought that meant that women were not empowered, intelligent or successful. If you are a regular reader of Katherines Corner you know that I surely am.
      I send this response with no ill intent and I send it with gratitude for your comment and wrap it all in hug!

  28. Hi Katherine,

    Here from the blog hop and following you now too :) I would first like to wish you a very Happy Anniversary! I also want to say that I am glad I took a moment to read thru the comments before mine. I do not think you could have handled a challenging comment on your blog any better. Grace under fire, you have class and grace. Glad to be your new blogging friend.

    Blessings, Tanya :)
