Happy Anniversary

Hey Lifers...

So today is a pretty special day for me. Back when I was younger, like most if us, I was a little wild. Its not like I was pulling a Frank The Tank and streaking down the street every Friday nights, but I wasn't exactly singin' in the choir on Sunday mornings either.

Anyway, I did a lot of stupid things back then and honestly didn't care much. I didn't care what people thought, or what people said. There was a time in my life that, looking back on it now, was pretty dark.

Then along came my DW...

I was given her phone number from a co-worker and decided to give her a call. We lived about an hour and a half away from each other at the time, so I guess we both figured it wouldn't hurt to just talk. We talked on the phone for a few months almost daily before finally meeting each other. I always tell everybody that we met on a blind date, but we did know each other a little by then.

We went out with that co-worker and her husband. We had dinner and saw a movie. Obviously we had a good time. We talked on the phone afterwards and spent weekends together. And eight months after we met, we were married.

That was ten years ago today.

I'm sure our family and friends thought we were crazy, and although they never said it, probably never thought we'd last ten weeks let alone ten years.

But the truth is we just fit. We don't always communicate well, and we don't always see eye to eye. Anyone whose read this blog knows that. But we make it work.

Marriage is hard sometimes there's no doubt about that. Lord knows she's not easy to live with. But its, she's, taught me so much.

So for all the grief I give her and through thick and thin, I'm so very grateful that things have unfolded like they have.

So today's post is a big fat Thank You to my DW for being the best DW I've ever had....

Love you babe...
