My husband and I were tired of doing the same old thing for anniversary celebrations so instead of another dinner out we decided to jump into a raft and try something with a little more excitement. His brothers and their wives loved the idea so asked if they could also join us for an anniversary river run as all of our anniversaries fall within a month of each other. With a little trepidation we climbed aboard and had the time of our lives. Not many people can say they went over a waterfall for their anniversary but we can! We love how the river can illustrate marriage. At times it is tranquil and peaceful but you never know what is around the bend so you’d better keep your eyes open. Hold on as there will be bumps along the way but when you are paddling in unison there isn’t much that you can’t make your way through. At times you have to take a leap of faith and just hunker down and hope for the best but the scary parts are usually just a passing movement. Trust your partner to be in sync with you and things will be a lot smoother. Sometimes the unexpected rapids are the most exhilarating and give you an amazing experience that you never thought was there, so see where the river takes you.
