6 Years and Going Strong

Over the weekend I had the tremendous opportunity to celebrate my 6th year wedding anniversary with my lovely wife Jessica.  My wedding day is something I will never forget and will always be cherished as one of the best days of my life.  Being married to me means making the ultimate commitment by giving 100% of yourself  to your partner with all your love, hope, trusts, dreams, fears and energy.  Pledging in front of everyone that I will be her man through all the good times and the bad, all the sicknesses and health, all the richness and the poor and all the good and bad in between.  I am honored to be a happily married man and love every thing that goes along with it.  I am blessed to be able to spend my life with someone who I truly love, cherish and enjoy being around and continue to love more and more as each and every day passes by.  Life to me is about finding a special someone with whom you get to spends life’s journey with, your lover, your mate, your friend and your companion all rolled into one.  Enjoying everything together from numerous vacations and kids and dogs and friends and laughs and all the of the madness that constitutes of everyday lives and by having someone to share in all of that with is truly remarkable.  We are blessed to have such wonderful friends who were able to help us enjoy in our special day by coming over and staying the night to watch our kids as we were able to get away.  We had a wonderful day together with massages during the day and a dinner and a hotel room at night.  As the every day madness sometimes consumes us, it is nice to get away with your lover and appreciate one on one quality time.  For those of you who have kids you all know, its nice to have a nice evening sit down dinner and adult conversation without the kids.  We need it, it helps keep al of us sane, that and the fact we were able to sleep 10 hours uninterrupted helps.  I enjoy each and every year with my wife and I know she feels the same and I will not stop loving her, enjoying her and cherishing her for as long as we both live.

To put how I feel into perspective, I have found the help from a beautiful man who was always about love and peace, Mr. Bob Marley:


Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” ― Bob Marley

Enjoy each day, be grateful for each day and count your blessings for each day you get to spend the person you love.
