Twenty three years ago was our first date even though we had been anticipating it for a few weeks. Twenty two years ago she said yes when I proposed even though I knew she was the one months before that. It's been a roller coaster of a journey together with many more blessings than disappointments. I couldn't have predicted all that we have experienced, but I can't imagine the journey without her wit, her intelligence, her beauty, and the way she makes me a better man. Twenty three years seems like a blessing of a lifetime and yet far too short a time together as well. I'm grateful that she has made me the luckiest of men.
