Thirty years ago I became the wife of this man. I remember how the knowledge that we belonged would hit me at the most unexpected times in the most awe inspiring way. This was a gift from God to be treasured. Life has not always been perfect or easy. But it has been good, filled with adventures, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, support and encouragement. This man takes good care of me and nurtures me. He gets me. This man has shown me mercy and showered me with kindness. This man has loved me well. This man committed to a forever journey with me. This man has my heart. I wouldn’t change a thing because everything we have experienced together has shaped who we are and is our story. It is a grand story and one that I hope has many chapters left to be written. This man is my man and I love him. Today we celebrate thirty years of being one.
