I see we are supposed to receive more rain today. It has been raining pretty steady for the most part of a week, but that is a blessing because of the drought we had endured all summer. Several of the rivers have returned to their former glory.
Tomorrow we celebrate an important milestone, our twelfth wedding anniversary. In some ways the twelve years flew by and in others it seems like it has been much longer. My life before I married SR seems like a distant memory. I have been so blessed to have married my soulmate the first time.
Over the last twelve years we moved to Wisconsin, had educational and employment triumphs, grown in our faith, experienced life's ups and downs and been blessed with 7 wonderful children. I am still amazed at what a blessing a faithful and loving wife is.
I love it when we run into older couples that have been married 40 or 50 years. In some ways, I can't wait until that is us.
So SR I love you and thank you for making me the luckiest man in the world twelve years ago.
Perfect love is when God creates
a soul and splits it in two,
Then once in a while a soul is
lucky enough to find its other half.
