We were later in life, before finding our true love. I was a single mom for five years and was trying to just focus on my business and kids. Bob (aka, Mr. Wonderful), was 55 and had never been married!
It seemed that we sort of accidentally ended up in a successful relationship. But it wasn’t quite so accidental. Each of us had to grow individually before making it together. Timing can be everything, when it comes to love. Timing and luck.
Knowing that we’d never make it to our 50th anniversary, we started counting our anniversaries by the month, so you see, this is actually our 168th anniversary. Much more impressive than 14, don’t you think?
Other than shear luck, we have two things that make all the difference in the world. We prioritize our relationship and we are 100% committed to it lasting forever. We sign our notes YLFL, meaning “Your love for life” and do our best to put the other at the top of our long to-do lists.
Thanks, Mr. Wonderful! I couldn’t ask for a better life partner!
