49 and counting

Who celebrates the 49th anniversary of anything?
49 is not special.
It’s “see if you can hold on for one more year”
or “almost perfect but not quite.”
It’s the California Gold Rush
which turned out well for a few
but disappointed thousands of treasure seekers.
We were looking for gold when we married.
I reckon we did better than California.
Who celebrates their 49th?
We do.

  1. Congratulations and Eureka! It's funny how 49 does lean into 50. Sort of feels anticipatory. I pray that this year's labors will be completed in time to celebrate 50 years with a sense of both completion and new anticipation. Love you.
