On this most special of days I wanted you to know you have been on my mind all day long. I’ve relived the events leading up to our wedding and the ceremony itself; I’ve relived our trip to Calloway Gardens and getting lost on the way; I’ve relived our first home- a 12’x 50’ 2-bedroom mobile home with one tiny window unit air conditioner and I’ve relived all (well most; well a lot) of the things that have transpired over the last 44 years to get us where we are today. What a life I have had and one I couldn’t even dream of when we left the wedding ceremony.
Andy Grammer has a song called “I Choose You”. The basic message is we don’t get to choose a lot of things in our lives, but we do get to choose the one we spend our life with and I choose you. I chose you a long time ago and I still choose you. I’ve made some pretty bad mistakes over the years, but one thing I got right was you. I love you more each day and over the years I think we have learned a lot more about what love really means.
We will celebrate 44 years of marriage today and tonight and I just want you to know that I couldn’t be happier. You are “The Story of My Life”.
I love you,
