Yes, I'm in Portland for Ministry Days and the UUA General Assembly.
It's lovely here,and I'm sure I'll learn a lot and have a moderately good time.
But today is significant in my life for a very different reason. See the guy in the tree? On June 18, 1977, in front of friends and family we made some promises to each other with a campus minister (Presbyterian) presiding. That makes today our 30th wedding anniversary.
We were young. Neither of us really had any idea what this life together would bring, but the blessings and the challenges (and there have been both!) have all been worth it. Knowing what I know now - I'd marry him all over again. I am truly blessed with a partner who knows the meaning of "speak the truth in love," which was one of our vows to each other all those years ago.
Wish he were here...
