Once there was this guy. A nice guy, really. And he met this girl. An incredible girl – truly beautiful with the most amazing red hair. So naturally the guy falls head over heels in love with her, follows her to North Carolina, and soon they’re picking out rings for their wedding. And the young couple rode off into what was sure to be a bright future.
Now some time has passed and the guy is living in that future. He’s still married to the girl after ten wonderful years, but now their life includes a lot of stuff – two children, bills, loads of laundry that never seem to end, careers, and yard work. But between all the to-do lists and chores, there are these moments when the guy stops for a minute and looks around.
He looks at all the responsibilities they have, he looks at his bride, he looks at their life together, and all the different ways they’ve grown closer. And he thinks to himself, “So, this is my life.”
And then he thinks, “I’m one lucky guy.”
I love you, Trish – Happy 10th anniversary. Be mine for the next ten.
