17 years ago today (August 14th), I met the one person who would come in and change my life forever, my wife Carrie. We had both of our kids and then decided to get married. Opposite of traditional marriages but it is what made sense to us at the time and when the moment was right, we joined our hearts and hands and walked in God’s love.
I remember our daughter only being 6 months old at the time and our son just a lil’ guy watching his mommy and daddy get married and make vows that has lasted the test of time, the ups and downs for 14 years to date.
Every time I see my wife, I fall back in love with her. There is something about her that just makes me smile. Something about her that makes everything that I have accomplished in life small compared to her tender smile and the embrace of her love. Even when there are tears, love prevails and carries us on the backs of angels through the difficult times and places us on the plateaus of safety.
If I had to do it all over again, there would be no hesitation and the answer would be a simple, yes.
Happy 14th Wedding Anniversary to my beautiful wife, soul mate, and best friend.
Here is to everlasting love, companionship, and blessings.
