After 64 Years, It's Nice to Know...

There's a song in one of my favorite musicals, "Fiddler on the Roof," where Tevya asks his wife, Golde, if she loves him after 25 years of marriage.

(Tevya)  Do you love me?

(Golde)  Do I what?

(Tevye)  Do you love me?

Golde)  I'm your wife!

(Tevye) I know...But do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love him?
For twenty-five years I've lived with him
Fought with him, starved with him
Twenty-five years my bed is his
If that's not love, what is?

(Tevye)  Then you love me?

(Golde)  I suppose I do.

(Tevye)  And I suppose I love you, too.

(Both)
It doesn't change a thing
But even so...
After twenty-five years
It's nice to know!

My husband and I have been married 26 years, and it's always nice to hear the three words, "I love you."

And what about 64 years? Today my parents are celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary.  They have set the bar high by being a great example of a successful, loving marriage. 

Their love inspired me to create them a special anniversary card.  I pulled together coordinating paper, rubber stamps, a library pocket, tag, and twine to create this:
Pin It


We all love Then & Now photos, right?  Here are theirs:
