40th Wedding Anniversary

40th Wedding Anniversary

On their 40th wedding anniversary and during the banquet celebrating it, Tom was asked to give his friends a brief account of the benefits of a marriage of such long duration.

"Tell us Tom, just what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?"

Tom responds, "Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, forbearance, meekness, self-restraint, forgiveness --and a great many other qualities you wouldn't have needed if you'd stayed single."

Malvini - I've gotten to the point where I can tell who wrote the post by the headline. With this one, I thought it was either a DPer telling of his actual 40th Anniversary, which would have been nice, or you telling a joke.

The joke gave me a great chuckle.

At the same time, I have to admit, I'd probably be dead by now if it weren't for my wife.

Thank you friend, for being around.

Thanks for the kind words Michael

Glad I could be of some help..

We are in this world together, but we don't have to be OF the world.

Laughter is food for the soul..

Keep smiling Michael

I also look for e's posts!

Keep 'em coming! Thanks to you and Michael.
