The Little Boat Of You And Me

September 25, 1988.

Twenty-two years ago this very day ('twas a Sunday, though), I met my Larry. The man I was born to love, be with, belong to.

He is my very best friend, my buddy, my soul mate, my hero, the true love of my life.

This life of ours hasn't been easy but it's been ours and it's been sweet beyond measure. I would not change one second of it.

There's a little plaque on a table in our living room that I found years ago. It pretty much sums us up.

It goes like this...

The little boat of you and me
Went sailing on the deep blue sea
We weathered storms and crashing waves
And we were strong and true and brave
And we were still in love so we
Kept sailing on the deep blue sea
The little boat of you and me
