Today is the tenth anniversary of my husband’s and my wedding. I truly do believe that every day is amazing; however, there are some days we remember better than others for happy reasons.
Those memorable days can be days of life events that we wanted and worked for. They can also be days when we were recipients of remarkable fortuitousness. And some, like our wedding day, have both elements of sincere intention and effort alongside elements of blessed chance.
Those memorable days are often shared with loved ones, sometimes one or a few beloved ones, or perhaps a new kindred spirit, or with just the good company of one’s self. And some, like our wedding day, are shared with the mind and heart boggling convergence of people from many times of life.
Those memorable days often set our lives on a new or changed course.
Those memorable days are abundant gifts that we can enjoy and be inspired by again and again via our memories.
I am fortunate that this anniversary falls on a Poetry Friday, because that made me think to write a poem for the occasion. It is a found poem, meaning the words are all quotes, selected and arranged to create the poem.
