It was our 50th wedding anniversary and my husband had promised a nice dinner at a high end restaurant. I was giddy with excitement. In all of our 50 years of marriage, we had never been to one of these five star restaurants. To be honest with you, I have always felt they were way too expensive and our money could be better used elsewhere.
We carefully walked to our table, my husband being careful not to tangle his cane with one of the chairs.
As we sat down, a beautiful cake with 50 candles was brought to our table followed by our children singing our wedding song.
My eyes filled with tears and they handed us our cake and wished us a Happy 50th Anniversary.
Our dinner was marvelous and it was a night I won't forget. At least, as long as my short term memory lets me remember.
