This is a tribute to my wife. This year we celebrate 45 amazing years of marriage. I was a young, wild, impetuous crazy guy from a very large city and she was a quiet, sensible and compassionate young lady from a farming community. Everyone told us it would never last...city slicker/farmer's daughter syndrome...and we only knew each other for 5 months yet, the two of us realized that we could not live without the other from the very start.
We gave it a shot and here we are , 45 years later, still in love and enjoying one another daily. We felt that through thick and thin, we were predestined to spend our lives together and we still feel that way. As we grow old together now, our methods of affection are changing but the fire is still there. This, I know, is due to my wife's patience, understanding and compassion. You see, I am now permantly disabled due to an accident many years ago, yet she continues to love me every bit as much as she did when I was young and fit. I owe so much to her and she tells me my body is not the reason she married me, it was my mind and my heart and my soul.
We will remain 'lovers' until our final breath and we will always understand what it means to 'give yourself' to another. I love her with my whole being and will until we both cross over and start all over again.
