5 Years Ago Today...

In honor of my 5th wedding anniversary,
the following haikus are for my husband.
Allan, I love you more than ever.


MORE

Anniversary.
Has it really been five years?
More love and laughter.

From husband and wife
To a family of three.
More joy and diapers.

Five houses, six moves,
Cross-country travels three times.
More boxes of junk.

Ten years of service,
A proud US Coastguardsman.
More school years to go.

Fishing and camping,
"Fun" in sub-zero climates.
More hobbies for you.

Licensed therapist,
Three non-profit agencies.
More money at last.

Writing and reading,
A new book or blog posting.
More platform building.

We've gone from plenty
To absolutely nothing.
More strength in our bond.

We'll never forget
Crying to the Lord for help.
More faith, assurance.

Each smile and caress
Conveys the depth of our love.
More praise to heaven.

I can't wait for more.
The next five or fifty-five.
More complete with you.


Here's for many more years of happiness, babe.

sherrinda - when we moved back to CA, we moved back into the same house we occupied prior to leaving. friends of ours from church who let us stay in their mother-in-law. :) but we felt homeless, i swear.
