Anniversary Quotes

“There is no feeling more comforting and consoling
than knowing you are right next to the one you love.”
~ Unknown Author

"A friend recently told me a story about his parents: They started attending a new church congregation and became members of the large choir. This choir had the annual end-of-year tradition of presenting awards across a range of categories. Each choral member would nominate an individual for each category. To their great suprise, the couple ended up winning the award for newlyweds, even though (to most people's amazement) they'd been married for over 50 years!

While mature-aged, many of the choral group genuinely thought the pair were newlyweds due to the loving way they were with each other. They would hold hands whenever they could, do little thoughtful things for each other, and loved to be in each other's company... true best friends!"

One of my favourite wedding anniversary quotes that expresses the sort of love that most of us long for:
“I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”
