For better, for worse, for scarier, for wearier, for happier, for....
Today is our eighteenth wedding anniversary. In Hebrew, the letters for the word "life" add up to "18." So I figure this is a year to celebrate our life as a couple. We have shared and savored the "better" part of our vows—our children, our first house, family gatherings, good friends, a caring community, fun vacations, work promotions, graduations, a bar (Max) and a bat (Sabrina) mitzvah, our children's inchstones, milestones, successes and accomplishments and so much more. We have weathered "worse"—finding out our firstborn had a stroke, the passing of loved ones, health scares, operations, layoffs, natural disasters, political nightmares.
We have been together...
And especially for stronger.
Here's to us, honey, and for being perpetually luckier to have each other.
