31 Years amd Counting
Thirty one years ago today a very cute girl with long dark hair and hazel eyes ask me to take her to her junior prom, I said yes and (with the exception of Jesus) it was the best decision of my life. Three years later after much begging and pleading I made her my wife. Since that day, together we have been through many good times and bad, times of abundance and lack, nights of sickness and days of health... but we have done it all together.
Honey, I was too sick the past few days to get you a card for our special day so I thought I would just post a few thoughts of my own.
Nadine my love, thank you for..
Thirty one amazing years
Two incredible children
Following me across the country and back
Always saying yes to God
Sometimes saying no to me
Sitting with me through all those hours of chemo
Enjoying the good days with me
Enduring the hard ones
And for always going forward
Thank you for bending but never breaking
For being so quick to forgive
And so ready to love
Thank you for being my lover
My best friend
The keeper of my secrets
My guardian of my heart
My protector of my hopes and dreams
Thank you for believing in me when I can't
For pushing me when I won't
And for jumping with me when I jump
I love you today
I have always loved you
I will love you with my last breath
And after that, I will always remain... forever yours
Happy 31st Dating Anniversary Sweetheart,
You really are an amazing woman and I'm so very glad you're mine!
Baby, you're the best!
