I have had the flu for the last few days. Finally fever is gone and I feel like I am a human again. On my way to the Carrick Brain center for a quick check up and on to radio.
Today is my fifteenth anniversary. As I drifted off to sleep last night I reviewed those fifteen years. By far the best of my life and all due to marrying the right woman.
We met on a Thursday night. Who knew that this one awkward meeting would change the course of our lives and that we would end up with the life we lead today.
Last week Raphe and I were watching a movie where a guy lost his way and I explained to him that it was because he married the wrong woman.
I don't care what others say, maybe I am just different, but loving the right woman makes you a better man. I want to be a better man for her and I think she try's to be the best woman for me.
We are less than half without each other.
Tania, I do not think I would be alive today with out you. You changed my life and in all ways it is for the better.
Thank you for being there is all of the ugly and tough times. Thank you for loving me and smiling when my hair is standing straight up in the morning. Thank you for loving me and not what I do or who the world thinks I am. Thank you for loving, caring and worrying about all four of the kids. Thank you for not worshiping things or money. Thank you for buttoning my shirts and tying my shoes when I can't. Thank you for printing stuff when we are both dead tired because Raphe's quest for his Boy Scout badges are important. Thank you for never giving up or allowing me to give up, thank you for being my biggest defender and biggest critic when I am wrong. Thank you for keeping me in touch with God and holding my feet on the path.
I held your hand this morning while you were asleep and I was grateful that you love me. I am the most blessed man in the world.
I have made so many mistakes in my life. But committing to God and you were the best things I have ever done and they are both connected. Without one there would not be the other.
