Today is our 42nd Anniversary. I think that is why I have been so depressed the last few days. Plus I have a sinus infection. I am on antibiotics.

I told myself I am not going to be depressed. I am bringing Jerry a nice dinner and I will spend time with him. This might and probably will be the last one we are together. So, I am going to make the best of it. I don't want to look back, in the future and wish I had done something nice and rememberable.

So, Happy Anniversary to me!

Happy Day, by now you have probably returned home. I hope you picked yourself up a little treat.
Mine is Chunky Chocolate Cap. frozen yogurt. What a day to remember all the years prior to this.
Thank you God for allowing those years to happen . I am afraid there are thousands of young people today who will never know the joy of years spent with a true love. I am so glad you and I have been
blessed by years with our Loved One. Sleep well.

I hope you enjoyed this very special day.

I didn't get a chance yet to say how much I enjoyed your family photos. Beautiful people. Such a pictorial reminder of the results of the love over that span of 42 years.

And the legacy continues....the legacy of the life you and Jerry have built together. What a gift!

Happy Anniversary!!!! 42 years is impressive. Job well done.

I don't have much comfort to offer in these bitter sweet moments other than to remember that we are never promised a tomorrow, so that there will probably be a few more tomorrow for you guys is quite a blessing.

Hang in there sweetness, you are doing a really great job.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I know it is difficult, but sometimes it makes more difference to our LO than we realize. On our 43rd I didn't think my wife understood much of it at all. If anything, she was depressed about it. Then, the next day, she dragged out the wedding album and wanted to go through the pictures with me. I cried through every page, but she seemed happy. We just never know.

Hang in there.

So enjoyed those lovely family photos. What a lovely couple you are. So glad you were able to pull yourself together enough to create a celebration. I know it is hard when you feel wiped out all the time. I am sure you will be glad later for the memories you created today but I hope it also helped today to dispel a bit of the gloom for both of you today.

May you find comfort in remembering the good times you have shared and in knowing you will be together again in eternity. Thanks for sharing your journey here, warts and all. You are an inspiration!

Happy Anniversary! 42 years is quite a milestone. We celebrated (well, not really celebrated, but I guess, I celebrated our 40th in June). I really had a hard day. I just kept remembering all our past anniversaries and how great they were, so I totally understand your feelings.
