I married my High School Sweetheart.
I guess we`ve known each other about 32 years. I still cannot wait to see her every morning when I wake.
She has been there for me through thick and thin, nursed me back to health after too many "bad things" happened, forgivin my "stupid things", and then promptly forgotten them, and always been my best friend. In 49 years I have never met a more selfless, steadfast and brave person.

She shot down the 5x6 bull that had me down and was trying to disassemble me, and she saved me from drowning when she pulled me out from under the quad that had me pinned underwater in the Kodiak backcountry. Those acts pale in comparison to the unwaivering love and support she has given me.

She gave me two nearly perfect kids who have never caused us a minute of heartache, and the greatest gift I ever had was the doc letting me be the one to deliver them. When we realized how bad our school system was, she took on the full time job of being a teacher, and never blinked when her students had guns in the classroom.

My only wishes for the future are to be able to be even half the person she is, and to have at least another 28 years. I am so blessed.
God has truely assigned me my own personal Angel.

I remember now!

Now that you mention it. I remember discussing that when I was out your way.
May God bless that purdy little lady for all the years she had to live with you, and the week she put up with Red Elk and I camping on her doorstep. Those pot roased/BBQ venison steaks are still fresh in my mind!
WooHoo!
A big Bearhug for her and a Plllllttt for you old man!

Hey Mike, sounds like you got a keeper there.
Any woman who will put up with with you for 28 years and still pull your fat out the fire when needed. nurse you when you get busted up and still have your children must be headed for sainthood.
Take good care of that Lady as she is solid gold. I envie your relationship, my wife of 44 years was a good woman but not as fine as yours. We had some issues.
Congrats on your anniversary and grow old together.

If she's so smart???

One time I was bragging on my wife, as to how wonderful and smart she is and was asked the obvious question.

"If she's so smart, what on earth did she see in you??"

My response... "That just proves that her wisdom exceeds that of any of us?"

Congratulations.

Congratulations to you both. And that's about as eloquant a tribute to a spouse as I've ever heard. Nice touch, sir!
