Did you ever exchange the same Anniversary Cards with your spouse or a friend?
Anniversary cards are a special remembrance and gift to your loved one. My husband and I bought each other exactly the same cards! When I buy cards, I read them carefully. That's because I want to convey the best possible message, especially to my husband. I know that he feels the same way too.
Sometimes I will look over a selection of cards at the local drugstore and not find anything good enough. I will go to another store to find just the right one. In fact, I might find a card when the anniversary or birthday is just months away, but it's a good card, so I buy it at that time.
When it comes to the day of our anniversary, the envelopes sitting on the mantle are the same color and the same size. Neither of us thought too much about it.
But, imagine our surprise when we opened our cards at the same time and they are the same cards! We just burst out laughing. We were truly meant to be together!
The message on the cards is so sweet too:
Because for me,
each day that we're together,
each day that our hearts
hold on to each other
is a better day
than the one before.
Our anniversary is on New Years' Eve. If you are a romantic, you might like to read about our romance too. We met online in 1995 and had no intention of finding someone online. He was living in Manhattan and I was here in Bellevue.
Whether it's anniversary cards on just about anything, we usually agree. It's not one hundred percent of the time, but that would be boring! But, on the things that really count, we pretty much see eye to eye. So, wouldn't you say that identical cards are testament to that?
