Today’s my 28th wedding anniversary. Memories of that day make my heart brim with smiles. It was a beautiful sunshine filled fall day. My parents, who have both since passed on, were by my side, and my family was filled with love and happiness.
I’ve been blessed to have found a love to share life’s journey with. Life hasn’t been so easy and I’ve often found myself in conversations with God expressing my feelings that I’ve/we’ve reached our quota of trials, obstacles, difficulties. After which I’d rationalize, with the higher being in our one sided conversation, that therefore it was time for us to have a little luck. Today as I looked back at the memories we made, I realized we’ve had more luck than many. We’ve had happiness every day that we’ve been in love.
Anniversaries are collectors of and often celebrations of memories. There are so many kinds of anniversaries: birth, death, wedding, work, etc. Today I started to think about a writing anniversary. I’ve never heard any one mention that. I think that’s because when you’re a writer, its almost as automatic as waking, or eating, you’ve just always done it. Its hard to pinpoint when you started. But I think it would be a good idea to have a writing anniversary. It would help to keep alive the memories of your creative journey, and bolster you up when you’re at low points.
So, I’ve decided to think on it and choose a date that for me will be the day I have a yearly celebration of my writing. It’ll be cause to treat myself to a fancy cup of coffee, a cookie, and maybe even give myself a present, a new pen, notebook, or book to commemorate the day and celebrate my efforts.
Will you join me? After all, we all could use something to celebrate.
