This is my man. We’ve been married for nineteen years today. Some years, we hardly saw each other. Other years, we struggled to like each other. But most of the years, we made it through with love and grace.
He’s always taken good care of us, and even when times have been lean, we’ve never wanted for the basics of life – food, shelter, clothing, and books.
He has a great sense of humor and is a highly entertaining storyteller, if occasionally a bit gruesome. (It’s a hazard of his line of work.) He keeps me laughing, keeps me hoping, and keeps our trials in perspective, no matter how dire they seem in the heat of the moment.
And we make really pretty babies together. That can’t be taken too lightly. 🙂
It’s been quite a ride, being married to him these nineteen years. An incredible adventure. And we’re not even close to finished yet.
Here’s to many more years together!
