500,000 Hours coming up

IMG_1884

Good Evening, God!

This photo was taken as my wonderful husband Kit and I celebrated our 57th wedding anniversary. A night to treasure!

I thought that would be it for anniversary celebrations . . . until next year.

Well, not necessarily. We had lunch today with a young couple. We told them about our anniversary and while the wife “ooed and aahed” the husband pulled out his phone and said “You have been married 499,xxx hours!” Hours?

My immediate response was to ask “How long will it be until we have been married 500,000 hours? He went back to his phone and said June 21st plus 28 and one half more days.  I had to count it up on a calendar but it appears that on July 19th Kit and I will hit 500,000 hours married!

Like most folks I love big round numbers! I remember the 2k flap with wild predictions of doom. Big round numbers get our attention. This has gotten MY attention. So, now I am puzzling over a suitable celebration. I don’t know of any precedents. I guess that means I can do whatever I want . . . and can convince Kit to do.

I’m open to suggestions.

Truly, we have innumerable reasons and occasions to rejoice and give thanks. It just tickles me to have discovered a very special NEW thing to be thankful for!
