Bands of Promise

Dwight & Ruth's Wedding0026 (2)

 

Two small bands of gold

Promises bigger than life

49 years strong

Tomorrow will be our forty-ninth wedding anniversary. When I think back on that day it was so very special. I smiled so much that my face hurt. The snowstorm that went up the east coast earlier in the week kept a few from attending,  but the wedding went on as planned. My friend who was supposed to play at our wedding was snowed in, so at the last minute my co-worker, who was the music teacher at my school, graciously filled in with only two day’s notice!  Through all the ups and downs of life, we have managed to stay together and love each other as we promised on that cold December day.
