Anniversaries and Life

Heidi and I have been married for ten years, today is our anniversary. With all of the nonsense circling I completely forgot that today was the day. I remembered yesterday and mentioned it but today, nothing. Then I checked my cell phone and Heidi had left me a wonderful message telling me that she still loves me and is happy we made the trip down the aisle.

Her message lightened the load on my shoulders. The past few weeks have been very stressful, full of anxiety and tension. The moment one crisis is resolved another seems to arise. I have that sick to your stomach feeling that I used to experience when I did not prepare for a test
. Knowing I failed and waiting for the sad results always left an empty pit in my stomach. That feeling in the pit of my stomach is the feeling I have been carrying around for two weeks now. The grade is never going to come.

I learned a long time ago that no matter how bad the situation or circumstance is, with time and constant movement forward the situation or circumstance will change. So that is what I do, keep moving forward, tackle one challenge at a time and try not to bring the people around me down.

This is not the doting tribute to my wife that it should be, a post of that nature needs time and careful thought. Our partnership operates on understanding and the desire to reach common goals. We love each other and more importantly she really turns me on. We have three children that are special. These three little souls that Heidi and I have brought into the world are more wonderful than I am able to express. Princess Merry who honestly believes she is the smartest and prettiest four year old on the planet. "Wrongside" Dave whose moods and mischief keep us on our toes and smiling and now there is Thomas. This little boy is going to be a devil. He loves to mix it up with his big brother and sister, he can not be deterred. Thomas even jumps in and wrestles with the dogs when they are going at it. We face challenges but in the big picture we are very lucky.

I love you Heidi and look forward to celebrating anniversaries with you for the rest of time.
