Anniversary Thoughts

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.

I am not sure  who this quote  is attributed to but it is one of my favorites.

I spent much time today reflecting on my marriage as I get ready to celebrate 26 years tomorrow. I will be busy at the office where I work but my mind will be filled with thoughts of my husband and all the wonderful years we have shared together.

I wish those of you with marriages to stay strong and enjoy the journey. Those of you who are single by whatever choice continue on your own journey. Life is good, when filled with family and friends.

I just wanted to share this with you today and here are a few more quotes that celebrate marriage.

Sometimes, when only one person is missing, and the whole world seems desolated.
Love is the best refreshment in life.
No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married for quarter of a century.
The secret to having a good married life is to understand that marriage must be total, it must be permanent and it must be equal.
It doesn’t matter where you go in life, what you do ….. it’s who you have beside you.
We have changed over the years, but the sparkle in your eyes is as bright as ever, and my love for you is even stronger.
Side by side – Year by year.
The difficulty with married life is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character.
Love begins in a moment, grows over time, and lasts for eternity.
Are we not like two volumes of single book ?
25th Anniversary – A celebration of love as bright and enduring as silver.
The world has grown suspicious of anything that looks like a happily married life.
True love stories never end.
Anniversary : A time to celebrate the beauty, gift, and the blessing of enduring love.
Knowing you will be with me in all my tomorrows, makes my today so wonderful.
There is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to your loved one.
On this our anniversary, we may not have wealth, but we do have each other and that is worth more than anything in the world.
A marriage anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.
I will not love you for the rest of your life, but for the rest of my life.
Marriage is choosing someone again and again to love and to cherish with each new dawn.

Happy Anniversary! I enjoyed reading all the quotes. This is my favorite:

"No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married for quarter of a century."

I wholeheartedly agree! My husband and I will celebrate our 29th anniversary in June and I must say that the love we now share is something I couldn't even have imagined in the first years of our married life. Thank you for giving me a smile with your sweet post today.

I hope you all have a wonderful anniversary celebration tonight. I love this post. Having been married for 36 years, I can certainly relate to what you said. I love my husband dearly but like you said "The difficulty with married life is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character." I don't know what I would do without my character beside me!
