It has been over three decades since we married. During that time, people have joined the military, served for thirty years, and have since retired.
But I still see her as the twenty-something I met on a blind date thirty two years ago, having been set up by a buddy (still a buddy) who told me that I just HAD to meet a girl he knew. He was convinced we were made for each other.
He was right.
Through joy and sadness, laughter and anguish, she has always been there.
Some people lead charmed lives. Others hit the lottery.
With her, I did both. Happy anniversary, Rebecca.
