Now, in somewhat of an awkward daze, I lined up, like a zombie, hoping she wouldn't disappear or have someone join her, ....it seemed like an interminable wait.......and I bought a drink and a pastry, so with my camera I looked overloaded and precariously fragile."

"Actually I simply took a huge deep breath of fresh air and went up to her, still alone by some miracle, (it's a memory I treasure and go to when things challenge us), and asked,

"Would you object, if I joined you?"

That smile was all it took......

....and the rest is our most amazing journey together!"

(Showing off the paired wedding bands).....

"But this was how it all began!"

LOL ... You somehow hit the point, this is a sort of a love-story :-)))

I'll tell her your words ... the journey began 31 years ago when she was our first child to lighten up our lifes.
She, her sister and her brother are wonderful human beings ...

Thank you, Asher ... this is it, what a picture should be about, isn't it?

Well, and life itself!

How can one be richer?
