30 Years of Love: Lucky Me!!!


Today marks thirty years of marriage to the kindest, strongest, most sincere man I will ever know. I wrote this last year on our anniversary, and post it again for my beau! He wrote the book on How To Be The Perfect Husband. And yes, I’m smug! Who wouldn’t be?!! Just look at how sexy he still is. I’m a lucky girl.IMG_00000995

Thank you Lance…

…for your energy, your enthusiasm for life, your excitement about the future

…for always singing, your voice rising through the rafters and into the skies and stars, filling our hearts with an unspoken joy

…for being focussed, for your hard work, for providing a home and a good life for us

…for always doing your best, for always being admired at work, for always being the one to be relied upon

…for your love of beauty, for loving the smell of flowers, incense, perfume

…for loving women, enjoying their talk, noticing how they look, caring about their hopes and dreams

…for making me the object of envy amongst my girlfriends, for making them seek you out when they have issues

…for loving me when I could not, for seeing beauty when I could not, for seeing talent when I could not

…for seeing past my insecurities, and seeing someone strong and able

…for insisting that I see it all too

…for our two children, for being a playful father, for being their best mate

…for making breakfasts for all their friends, for talking into the early hours with them, for teaching them to think, to wonder, to question

…for never hurting our children, for never hurting me

…for wanting to kill my father for hurting me

…for forgiving him when I forgave him

…for undoing the damage of my childhood with all your attention and all your wisdom

…for wishing you were there to save me from my childhood pain

…for being here when I lived through it all again

…for not being shocked about my past

…for having so many answers to questions I couldn’t ask

…for letting me take my journey

…for understanding my insanity, for following me through my mad world

…for knowing you’re a part of it all, yet not knowing anything at all

…for coming through the Dark Night with me when we lost our boy

…for singing again, and paving the way forward with your songs

…for knowing all my dark places and visiting with me there

…for being ready to leave this world with me if I see fit to go

…for your cups of tea every morning because I’m not a morning person

…for the smile that accompanies the tea, for the creased lines around your eyes that show your innate joyful nature

…for loving me with fat thighs, thin thighs and for loving my body even when all my bits have gone south

…for thinking I look great even when my eyes are puffy and my hair needs doing

…for marrying me and making my life worthwhile

…for looking yummy even after all these years

…for being the warmest, kindest, most loving person I could ever know

…for being the strongest person I could ever know

…for making me feel that if I had to do my childhood over again just to find you, I’d do it in a heartbeat

…for being the best friend I’ve ever had, and ever will have

…for being you.

To say ‘I love you’ isn’t enough. But I’ll say it. I love you.

Your Yazzy

  3. Yazzy 🙂 I haven’t heard that before… though maybe should have remembered it from last year.

    I love that photo – so gorgeous. This is beautiful, Yaz. CONGRATS. Sooooo, does he have a brother… maybe in Oz?? 😉

  4. I love this, Yaz! He sounds like a truly wonderful man, you are lucky indeed! I have a sneaking suspicion that he is equally as fortunate to have you too! 😉 Happy anniversary to you both! ♥

  5. Congratulations Yaz for 30 years of love and happiness with your man. I too consider myself so blessed by having a FANTASTIC relationship and am more in love now after almost 36 years that ever before. I happen to believe that it is very important that we are open and let others know that such long-lasting bliss is possible–because there is so much bad press about divorce and people staying together. Sure some of it takes intention and effort but the rewards are so worth it. That’s why last year I wrote the blog post “The Best Marriages Just Get Better & Better—Thirty Five Years & Still Counting” Here’s a link in case anyone is interested… http://smartliving365.com/the-best-marriages-get-better-better-thirty-five-years-still-counting/ Enjoy your special day and the rest of your lives together! ~Kathy

    • Thank you so much Kathy. You are so right; there are many women out there who have had bad experiences, and its nice for them to know that there are good men in the world. I’ll be over right away to read your link.

    • Hey Diane! Lovely to see you here! Yes, I am blessed with a great man. Thanks for dropping by!

      • I am lucky like you I have wonderful partner. If you would like to see her go to pommepal@wordpress.
        Life is really fantastic with a wonderful mate. Mate is an Aussie expression for good buddy or great pal.
        It is no wonder you have positive, inspiring mixed with good humour. One of the first posts i saw of yours was a real light hearted laugh about good looking doctors.

      • Thank you for your compliments Jack! Yes, isn’t it great to have someone to share the triumphs and the tragedies with? I checked out your lovely lady and can see why you love Gypsy woman! I especially loved her blog about the windows of Malanda. Thanks for sending me over there!

      • That is what friends are for, caring and sharing. I enjoy cruising around wordpress and often see your comments on posts I like. This makes me feel we have quiet a lot in common.:-)

  24. Hi Yaz – Just looked at your page for the first time. Hearty congratulations on your 30th anniversary! Well done to you both. I didn’t know that men with relationship skills like Lance existed. What did you do right in your previous lives Yaz?? Tell Lance he should start a training school in life & relationship skills for men – and especially boys!
