Today is my Nan and Grandads 68th wedding anniversary. 68 years!!! I literally find myself flabbergasted by that number.
In this day an age it is so easy to give up on love that I can’t imagine anyone I know will have a marriage that lasts that long again.
Now I can’t imagine my Nan and Grandad have had a perfect life together. They’ve gone through some beautiful times and some heart breaking times but the most sacred part about their life is that they’ve done it together. They’ve supported each other and they’ve cared for each other.
It is so easy these days to fall out of love. To say I give up because it’s not going too well right now. To have a wondering eye because the grass appears greener. Now don’t get me wrong I’m a firm believer in leaving a loveless relationship because in the end it will only cause more pain but I’m also a believer in trying. I believe that you should try, try and try again. If things get tough stick it out. See how you feel once the sun starts to shine again. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t.
I believe in love. And I believe that people are free to love who they please. Whether you love a girl or a boy it doesn’t matter - it may to some small minded loveless people - but it doesn’t matter to me an it shouldn’t matter to you. Love is love.
As long as the person you love knows you love them. You’re good to them and you treat them with respect. That’s all that matters.
So I hope you join me in wishing my Nan and Grandad a happy 68th wedding anniversary and here’s to them spending many more happy healthy years together.
