Today 32 Years Ago
On that day I had no real idea what marriage was, what it meant to be husband to this woman, or for her to be wife to me. I trusted her with everything, I valued her companionship as the best friend a person could have, I loved her as best I knew what love was, and I cared for her more than my life. In 32 years of life together there have been many tests and trials, many joys and many sorrows, many moves and changes, but what has not changed is my belief that she was and is the best choice and decision I have ever made. I know a bit more about what marriage is, what it means for me to be husband to her and for her to be wife to me. I trust more than ever, I delight in being with her every moment, I love her more than life, and I care for her more than I ever knew I could care. And that is what love is -- burdens shared, sorrows comforted, trials faced together, joys and laughter untold, honest conversation of the hardest things to speak, faith grounded and united in God, so that I cannot think of me without her... Thanks be to God for her and Happy Anniversary to my one and only beloved!
