June. Finally. And...it's raining.  But rain or shine, the school year is almost over and it will be our first summer in our new home.  I'm looking forward to lazy days, reading a book a day, and enjoying the nature just minutes from our doorstep.  But first, I have to get through report cards, restless students, and cleaning up my mess of a classroom.  It will get done.  Last week Michael and I celebrated our fourteenth wedding anniversary.  He surprised me with a bicycle built for two, and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Our friend Dave, took pictures, and we all had a good laugh as Michael and I tried to maneuver an old tandem.  It was perfect.  Just like the day we got married.  That sunny May morning, fourteen years ago, was a day I will never forget.  We were only kids, but I knew our marriage would be strong.  If only I could have predicted how much strength we were to need.  But our love has deepened, to a place that can't be expressed in words.  All I know, is despite all the pain and sorrow, we are continuing to seek joy as a couple.  We created our angel Luka with our love, and I know in time we will create another beautiful child, who will get to witness our love for a longer time.  As we laughed and played amongst the tall pine trees on our bicycle built for two,  I'm sure Luka danced in the wind and the trees, giggling right along with us.
