Memorial Day. It is especially significant to me for a couple of reasons.
One is obvious and requires nothing of you or me but recognition, celebration, and reverence.
The other is relevant only to Gaby and me. Forty-Five years ago, on May 30, 1968, we got married.
The longevity of that contract and all that transpired during it are important to us but insignificant to all others.
However, it also requires recognition, celebration, and reverence.
The most important thing, it seems, to a wife, is to remember the anniversary. That is not high on the guy list of important dates unless, of course, self-preservation is an issue. Then we remember.
Our anniversary shares a date with a National Holiday and is therefore easy to remember. How cool is that? Is it by accident or design? Hmmmm.
