it was 40 years ago today...
Forty years. That's nearly twice as long as it took me to attain legal age, several years longer than any one place I have ever lived, almost twice the number of years I was in school, the number in the Torah that meant a really really long long time we can't even count that high.
Forty years ago today Marc and I stood up in front of family and friends and made promises to love and cherish through better or worse forsaking all others til death do us part. Seemed easy then. It wasn't always easy. In fact, many years it was downright hard and seemed impossible. More than once we were on the brink. But somehow, we always managed to persevere either through stubbornness, fear, devotion, uncertainty, acceptance, or maybe just love.
