Six years of marriage today, and closing in on sixteen years of being together! Happy Anniversary to us.

May your marriage bring you all of the exquisite excitement a marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance and understanding. May you always need one another, not so much to fill the emptiness as to help each other know your fullness. May you want one another, but not out of lack. May you embrace one another, but not encircle one another. May you succeed in all important ways with one another, and not fail in the little graces. Look for things to praise, often say "I love you" and take no notice of small faults. May you have happiness, and may you find it in making one another happy. May you have love and may you find it in loving one another.
--Reverend Ellen
