Blessed Treasures What blessed treasures in our kingdom of love thrive. A love of four decades has grown and is still alive. We have beaten the odds of half of marriages that end. We may disagree at times, but always seem to mend. I feel endearing love shared with me each and every day. You calm my fears to instill hope, you always find a way. Fatherhood fits you as a comfortable old worn glove. Our children have always known the guidance of your love. Now retired and at home, as we reach our golden years, Wrapped in youthful memories with wistful, joyful tears We sustain each other through sickness and in health And realize that our union contains the greatest wealth. 5-8-20 Regal Royal Relationships Poetry Contest~First Place~ Sponsored by: Chantelle Anne Cooke Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you Sonia. Many years ago my husband asked an older gentleman who had been married many years "what is the secret of a long marriage?" The old man told him "Understanding"! I agree. xxoo

"We may disagree at times, but always seem to mend" explains the depth of this beautiful relationship in such a poignant way. Congratulations Connie :)

Hello Connie … to have love, respect, and trust for a lifetime is worth more than all the wealth in the world. We cannot buy it, so us lucky ones can certainly relate to this fine verse Connie - thank you - Lindsay

Very few relationships last so long - but it's indeed a treasure when it happens and worth holding on to! "Fatherhood fits you as a comfortable old worn glove". Endearing! Several people in my family have had relationships that lasted for several decades, only to end in divorce. Always seems so strange to me.
