Twelve years, and your hair
grays at the temples,
shrinks from your forehead

yet your eyes smile blue—
summer shot with gold—

and my heart still beats
a song when your face
sky lifts in laughter.

Today I’m grateful for:

2591. My husband
2592. Twelve years on Sunday
2593. Saying yes: one of the best decisions of my life
2594. The ways his love has enabled me to thrive
2595. His contagious laughter
2596. His hands
2597. The privilege of parenting with him
2598. Four healthy, happy children
2599. His belief in me, my writing
2600. Getting to share my life with the man I love
