Today is our 41st wedding anniversary. We were married on January 30, 1980 in the East Prayer Chapel at Unity Village, Missouri. Unity Village is the world headquarters of the Unity Church and their buildings and grounds are beautiful. Since we were married in January you can see the whole area was decorated white for us!
We had a small, simple and inexpensive wedding in the small chapel on the side of the much larger church. We were married by a wonderful lady by the name of Hypatia Hasbrouck. One of my favorite books is The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran and she included excerpts from his writings on Love and on Marriage in our vows.

Last year on our 40th anniversary we had originally planned on going out to eat as we usually do on our anniversaries but Tom got very sick with the flu so we were unable to go out. Then soon after that the pandemic hit and many restaurants closed and we stayed in most of the time like everyone else. This year we are going to have a nice dinner from a favorite Italian restaurant. We have decided to get take-out from the restaurant and enjoy it at home.
As I’m sure many of you will agree, it is funny how time passes. On one hand 41 years is a long time, while on the other hand it can be just a blink of the eye.
