My husband and I have two sons and we recently celebrated our 35th anniversary. We have a good marriage and worked hard to take care of each other and our family. We had planned a special anniversary celebration in Hawaii for our 35th but had to cancel because of the pandemic. I was very disappointed.
I still wanted to do something to mark the day, so I contacted our priest to see if he would bless us on the day of our anniversary. He agreed and prepared a little ceremony with a reading and nostalgic facts about 1985. It was just the three of us outside of the church - my husband and I and the priest - and we renewed our vows. It was just beautiful, and at the end of the day, it was not about where we were to celebrate, but that the two of us were together celebrating our love.
