Yesterday was my 30th wedding anniversary. The anniversary of one of the best days of my life. DH and I have a great marriage full of love, respect, and lots of fun. We weren't sure how we were going to celebrate since it's on a Tuesday, but celebrate we were!
Then this happened...5:00 in the morning I hear DHs cell phone ring. As you can guess, a phone call at 5:00 doesn't mean good news. I'm laying in bed thinking, please be my sister calling to sing "Happy Anniversary" but deep down I knew that wasn't it. We got a call that his mother, my mother-in-law passed away. She passed peacefully in her sleep at 4:00 a.m.
After the initial sock and lots of tears, we looked at each other and said "happy anniversary" and then cried some more.
We floated by the rest of the day, a coworker texted to let me know I had some flowers on my desk (I can't remember the last time DH sent me flowers on our anniversary) so she dropped them off and much later in the evening, our four children surprised us with an amazing anniversary gift. They pitched in and purchased tickets to a four day cruise.
It was all so bitter sweet.
I didn't get a chance to take a photo of my work area, but I felt like posting anyways.
