Happy Anniversary

A and I got married 14 years ago–but our anniversary isn’t special. Every night, when he comes to bed–our comfy bed with the extra padding–I am grateful and aware of the blessing.

I was volunteering with seniors, facilitating a writing group when A & I moved in together. One of these wise women said to me, “I’m so happy for you; life is better when you’re not alone isn’t it?”

And not only A, but our two daughters grace my life now. One of them made a fabulous dinner for us, the other made this:


Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.

    And it is a blessing and maybe even a miracle when we who have known otherwise also know this love and goodness exists — AWE!

  5. Yes Sheree–you put it beautifully. It’s something I will never take for granted, and that in itself is a blessing.
