It was book week at school last week and our class were doing Eric Carle. Now all his books are wonderful but there is a certain book of his that I particularly love - 'Papa, please get the moon for me'. It's a very simple story and I scanned a few of the pages so you can get the gist. I think it's about love. Big love. Love that would make you climb to the moon. Unselfish love. A giving love. Today I'm celebrating my big love - my enormous love for my husband! You see it's our 21st wedding anniversary today and I know that he would climb to the moon to bring it to me. I'm very blessed. When we first met I knew that I would spend the rest of my life with him and the sight of him (only yesterday as he was walking to the car) still makes my heart and tummy flutter! I don't want this to sound too perfect because we are not by any means - it certainly is hard when one of us has to be on the other side of the world from our families and we can only afford for him to visit every few years. But we muddle through and our children and our marriage is my greatest achievement. Our secret? We have the same faith, goals and values and we work as a team.
Simple... but then not so simple!
