A little voice inside my head said,
“Don’t look back. You can never look back.”
A day late, but for once, perhaps not quite a dollar short.
We are not date-obsessed people. We have spent anniversaries apart over the years. We passed ‘couple’ and ‘handful’ and are rapidly lazing our way toward double digits, and yet … here we still are.
Perspective says how utterly young and naive we were on that day. We probably haven’t learned much, but at least we have a mortgage to show for it.
