Thoughts on love

one that I read the first time when I was 21
and grieving the loss of a woman
who was like a spiritual mother to me;
I remember when she died, it was sunny and 
I felt like I had lost my Mother.
This time I am reading it almost 20 years later and I am 
married to Mr. Husband.
And one of the unexpected joys of reading this book
is how his description of his marriage to his wife
had so much goodness in it and it reminds me of my marriage.
It also reminds me of how I hope that I do not die
before Mr. Husband as I wish him not to go 
through the pain of loss that this author did.
I am really greatful for the life I have with my Mr. Husband
and for all that it contains.
