Climb every mountain part 2

Continuing from yesterday: 
To climb mountains - it need not be about setting goals. I think most would say it is about problems or challenges in life.
We are faced with many challenges right now: We need to get the house sold, Lars and my health is not good, where to stay, how can we cope, how will the future be ...
Yesterday, Saturday, we had to have some very heavy stones removed. Each stone weighed over 30 kg. There were many who came and helped us! Quickly all the stones were moved!Thanks to all who helped us, jet again.

Symbolically, we have many stone to be moved in our lives right now - and we are about to climb a high mountain. It is not easy and we get scrapes along the way, but we have family and friends who are rooting for us.
When we symbolically reaches the top of the mountain - we can enjoy the time ahead of us.

It is in difficult times you see who your friends are. They are the ones who do not leave you, when you need a helping hand. When we look around us, we see that we are surrounded by sincere friends and family. Our friendship - and family ties have been linked even closer. 

The card says:
To day, is the tomorrow
you dreamt of yesterday!

Next week, Lars and I may celebrate that we have been married for 31 years. He is my heart, my soul mate. I love him dearly. In Denmark we celebrate some wedding days in a special way . We put a triumphal arch around the frontdoor on these occasions. Family and friends are invited to a banquet. 
When a couple has been married for 12½ years , only half a triumphal arch are put up - there are still 12½ years to the silver wedding.
