April flew by and here comes May! Filled with happy moments and sad ones too. Avery and I will celebrate 37 years of marriage on May 3. May 6th would be the birthday for my late brother-in-law Gary and May 8 would be the 113th birthday of my favorite Uncle Louie. My Tata Rose passed away on May 12.  and Shea Avery Marie will turn one year old on the 19th.  My grandparents Joseph Kocman and Mary Videtich were married on May 22.  May is filled with many memories and bittersweet times.  Welcome May!

37 years of marriage today! It is the second time in our marriage I have been sick. I had food poisoning Friday and I won't go into that but I still feel wonky. So with a cold rainy day and the hubby busy as a bee at his office, it is a good day to rest.

We've had a good marriage, fun times and lots of sadness too. But all in all we have a strong bond and we enjoy our time together.

The older I get, the less time I want to spend with the part of the human race that didn't marry me. ~Robert Brault,

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life — to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? ~George Eliot (1819–1880), Adam Bede, 1859

I know that marriage is a legal and religious alliance entered into by a man who can't sleep with the window shut and a woman who can't sleep with the window open. ~Ogden Nash, "A Definition of Marriage," 1948

Congrats on 37 years of marriage. May holds memories for me as well, some good and some bad. I was reading about your postcard exchange back in 2010. If I can remember your address, I will send you one from Alabama.
