Whoops! I forgot.
I'm in the dog house now. Things started out as normal. We ate breakfast and took care of getting ready for another day. As, we watched the news, to see what was happening until there was a knock on the door. My daughter entered and then it happened. She had a card and handed it to my wife. It said "Happy Anniversary!". I thought, oh no! I am in trouble now. My wife grinned at me and said, "I forgot too!". I told her "Your birthday is coming up so I will buy you double boxes of candy." My wife agreed and all was good.
The blessing in all of this was that this is the first time in a long time that I made that mistake. It is our 54th anniversary. I think we are allowed a senior moment now and then. Thank goodness everything is fine in paradise.
