Open Letter to Kita Kazoo

Dearest Kita,

Today on our 21st anniversary my mind is full of you. It always is. Especially right now though, when so much of our life seems in such turmoil do I think of all the reasons why I love being with you so much.

You been the best friend I have ever had, and that means more than just hanging out and having fun together. Really, you have stuck with me through some very difficult times and circumstances over the years. I have always been able to count on your support and depend on your word. And, you are fun to be with too. I would rather spend time with you than anyone else I have ever known. After 50 years of knowing people, I doubt that will change.

I am so sorry that life has been so hard lately. How much character development can a couple people stand – really! I know though that everything is going to be fine and we are going to be very happy to havel our life pared down to a manageable level. I feel bad that we have so much that is not being used for the purpose we intended.

When I look at other couples, I am especially grateful for you. You are a real partner. Without your get to it-ness my life would be a “real” mess. I really appreciate you as a motivated comrade (and hot chick).

Speaking of which, I think you are beautiful. You are wonderful and fabulous, talented, sweet, good and kind. All of the things everyone wants in a partner.

You are a good thinker and I really am grateful for all your good ideas and how you can help me consider my own thinking better. I make better choices because of your input.

You have grown and changed over the years in very positive ways. I am so thankful that we seem to stay close in important perspectives as we change and grow together. That is something that few people have. I feel we are very lucky in that.

I hope we can always keep the love we have for each other. Really, all I want to do is spend all my days loving you. I wouldn’t mind doing it someplace warmer though.

Happy Anniversary Kita!

Love Forever,

  2. Today is our 26th Anniversary.
    I can't think of anything to better describe how I feel than what I wrote you five years ago. It's amazing that we are still doing the paring down and that it is much more of a task and challenge than we ever expected. One thing that never changes is my love for you. I love you Honey. Happy Anniversary.

  3. Isn't it funny that this letter still fits our situation 5 years later. Maybe something will never change.

    Thank you so much for sticking with me through all of life's ups and downs. There is no one or no place else I would rather be.

    Thank you for being supportive, especially when I am in a funk. Without you I would not be the well rounded and almost stable person I think I am.

    I love you too, Kita
