Today I celebrate 27 wonderful years with this guy.
He is my rock. He is my calm after the storm, the voice of reason in my sea of life's insanity. His love makes everything I do worthwhile.
I have never known this more than I do today. He is the real treasure in my life, this easy going, quiet guy who is so giving and patient. To his wife, his daughter, and so many others. 27 years ago I could never have realized how much sweeter love becomes, when as a couple you have been through life's trials, shared every heartbreak, and savored the victories together.
No crazy, crowded dinner out for us here tonight. Just a quiet night, enjoying each other and thinking about all the joys our life together holds. I'll be so content with a nice home-cooked dinner and maybe a small fire in our back yard. Enjoying being with my man. Grateful for every thing we have together.
Love you, Maurie. Forever.
