A LOVE LETTER
          I just want to share some thoughts since our 50th wedding Anniversary is June 21st.  People have asked,"How do you Love one person for 50 years"?  I'm pretty sure that there is no one answer for that.  What I can say is that it has to start with Love.  Another thing that I believe in is finding your Soulmate. Now that's the hard part.  What is a Soulmate? I believe it's the one person who sees you, I mean really sees you and gets you! Sees you to the core of your soul and loves every part of you, as you are and as you change through life, we all change.  Your Soulmate will change with you and still love you to your core being. You have to walk together through life as one. There is a passage in Scripture that says, "Husbands, love your wife as you love yourself."  Think about that for a second.  That's a big command because it obligates you to take care of yourself first, Love yourself, the Person you are.  In that way you can give yourself  as a lifelong gift to the soulmate you love.  It takes 2 people who are in sync to work the changes of life out together.  When you find true love you have to work hard as one person to keep the LOVE constant.  Yes I said one person because when you have a Soulmate the two become one.  Is everything always perfect? Of course not!  We're still human and we fail but when one falls the other is there to reach out and pick up the fallen. There is so much more I could say as the thoughts of My Soulmate run through my mind as my wrting of this love letter. 
Lorraine,
I Love You now always have and always will.  (Rick and Lorraine T.L.A)
   Forever,
