Remembering And Recapping

So, yesterday was my 22nd wedding anniversary. The night before, Facebook was kind enough to remind me. I was allowed to add a comment to the notice and a couple pictures for all the Facebook World to see.
This is what I typed:

Lived in our home for over 18 years now. Not long after we moved in, I wrote something on a note card and taped it to the bathroom mirror on Lucenda’s side. Every time she looked into the mirror, she would see it. About 3 years ago, the old tape let go. She had it clipped to the basket sitting on the side of the sink. The note was still visible. This is what that note says …
“As the sun rises each day to bathe the land in brilliant splendor, your face floods my heart with unmeasurable joy!”
I was blessed to have been her husband for 21 and a half years.
You are still the most beautiful woman in the world my Hug-A-Bunny.

Followed by our engagement photo, and our last Family Christmas photo taken December 2013.

Today was a busy day. The boy and I went roller skating this afternoon at MagicWheels. We have not been in a month. However, it is still our “go to” place. It was not busy at all. For the most part, it was a great time. I will not go into my issue with parents who let children run the show. I will save that for an other time.


This evening, we went to the General Jackson’s ballgame. It was Disney night. Went to the Will Call table, no tickets .. went to the Will Call window .. no record of me ordering tickets. I am soooo glad for the Credit Union App on my phone. I showed them where it has hit my bank account. They could not give me the tickets I had reserved. However, we got better seats .. once the sun went down.
We both acted silly. I worked hard to embarrass the boy at times. We had pizza and soda. We walked around some. We went in to the store. We raised a smart boy, he immediately recognized the items were extremely over-priced.
At some point, they had on the big screen, various team players sharing their favorite Disney movie song. One player said “Everybody Wants To Be A Cat” from his favorite movie “The Arisocats”. I started to cry a bit. That was Lucenda’s favorite also.
After the game, they had fireworks. The presentation was Disney themed. It was a very impressive display. However, the finally startled most of us. They had 4 massive fireballs that we ALL felt the heat from.
During the display, they played various Disney movie songs. When they played Phil Collins “You’ll Be In My Heart” from Tarzan, I felt as if it was me saying that to Lucenda. When they played “Let It Go” from Frozen (a very over-played and quoted song) I heard it different for the first time. It is time to let go of the pain and move forward.
All in all, it was a great day … I got to spend it with my son.
