Last night the love of my life brought home yellow roses. The first roses he ever sent were yellow. I was in heaven. We exchanged vows amidst the bicentennial hoopla of 1976!
Today I do the math and check the calendar. On the 17th I will have completed 38 rich years with this gentleman who still remembers to bring roses, carry my tripod, and traipse after me on whatever scheme I am currently pursuing. I have said for years that I put the color into his life while he hangs onto my balloon strings lest I float away.
He is my rock! I adore him! Thank you, sweet Clark, for bringing your steadiness into my world. You walk a straight line while I wander. You eat the same things every morning for breakfast while I am always on a new kick. You balance the checkbook and all that other math-y stuff while I repurpose rooms in brand new ways. You surprise me still. You comment on the world with such surprising twists, I never cease to laugh. You bring sparkle! You fill my reservoir with wonder! You are a color master in your own engineeringly way. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love you!
