"This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with and love."
(Man, we don't look anything like this now !!!)
24 years ago I promised my bestest friend that I would love and cherish him, comfort and protect, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer 'til death do us part. Today I am still married to my bestest friend and I wouldn't swop him for anything.
We have had our ups and downs as all married couples have but I can't think of anyone else I would rather wake up next to every morning, or anyone else who I would rather see last thing before I go to sleep. Yes, during the night I am sometimes not that happy to have him sleeping next to me when his snoring kicks in, but I remember reading somewhere a while ago a letter from a lady whose husband used to snore a racket at night. After he died, she said she couldn't sleep because it was too quiet and she wanted to hear the snoring again. In all likelihood, I will be the same as her but for now, there are times when I have considered all sorts of options to stop the snoring !
I can't think of anyone else I would rather have next to me when I am watching a movie or training or cycling or just sitting doing nothing (although if I am honest here, if I am sitting doing nothing it is highly unlikely that Al will be sitting there with me - he doesn't do nothing easily !!!)
I truly hope we can get our act together and make it to Canada for our anniversary next year - for this year, a nice dinner out will be great !
Love, hugs and positive energy.
