I guess about this time 14 years ago, I was putting on a tux and leaving the ring at home before our big day.
Right before the pastor took me out to the sanctuary on that day, we were in a little waiting area. The pastor jokingly told me I had two choices and he pointed to the two doors: one leading to the stage where we would be married and the other to the exit door. He said, that either choice would drastically change my life. My choice remains unfaltered and I have NEVER looked back to wander what door number two would hold for me. It is obvious to those who know me which door I picked.
Today is out 14th wedding anniversary and I still feel like newlyweds most of the time. There is nobody I had rather hang with and do things with than Sheila. Some people think we are a little "clingy" and I am ok with that. Mainly because Sheila is the only one I have promised to grow old with. She will be there no matter what. Not true with a lot of other people in life. Friends come and friends go. I pray we all have life long friends (I happen to marry mine). But people move away , hobbies change, believes change and life happens. I pray that all of you find or have found a mate that fits you as well as Sheila fits me.
So here, to celebrate our anniversary, is a look back at the big day that led to a bigger life:
"hey, why is everyone laughing while I kiss my bride???"
Oh, by the way, to those who think we are too touchy feelie, I ask you this: What would it be like for your spouse to let you lay your head in their lap and rub your hair until your headache is gone? Or how about an hour long foot rub after being on them all day? Yeah, I get both! so I will take touchy feelie any day!!!
Thank you Sheila for giving me an indescribable marriage and a wonderful life!!!!
