15 Years

I was just shy of 21, she was just shy of 20.  Both in college, I was aspiring to be a police officer and she was working to become a speech pathologist.  We both graduated and moved to Indianapolis and lived in a trailer.  There we both figured out that neither of us wanted to be what we had just spent 4 years learning to be.  I joined the railroad and she managed different institutions of charity and government works.

  We tried having kids for a couple years to no avail.  We discovered that marriage was hard and even harder when things didn't go as planned in life.  We learned what it felt like to watch the other walk away in anger and we learned never to walk away again.  We laughed, we cried, we beat our fists against walls and we danced.  We moved to our home and soon became parents to the most beautiful girl God could bless us with and our dynamic duo became an unstoppable trio.  We are a team and we fight for our team daily.

We still fall in love every day.

I have been married to my best friend and partner for 15 years now.  She is the desire of my heart and I will show her this every way I can.  I am blessed because she has made me stronger.  Thank you God for the beautiful gift she is.
