47 years ago today, I became a wife. Starry eyed and all of 18 years old. What did I know?? That I was in love. That's about it...LOL. Back then, Memorial Day was May 30th...period. As it happened, that year May 30th was the last Sat. in May. And the only date the church was available til August. And so we married on Memorial Day. Years later Memorial Day was changed to fall on the last weekend in May, period. Other things changed too. The marriage lasted 36 years, not all of them happy. We ended it, and divorced in 1996. We have been able to stay friends, and altho he has remarried, we are able to attend events in our children's lives with out difficulty or pain. Made it much easier for the kids. Do I wish things were different, at times, yes. But for the most part, I've made my peace with it. Regrets? I've had a few, *VBS*, but then, too few to mention. Life goes on. And so do I, *VBS* Have a wonderful May 30th, I'm off to spend the day with DD# 1, and help her get her garden planted.
