I Love This Woman




Thirty years ago, yes, 30, like Three Decades, I stumbled across this woman and thought...

“she could be my wife.”

I remember the thought and I remember thinking it and I remember the time I thought it.

However, “she could be my wife” was not an easy thought to put into action. It took time and dedication, but, eventually it happened.

During our time together we have supported each other in writing our PhD theses, moving from job to job, raising children and surviving the slings and arrows that Life throws.

I love this woman.

We have lived with each other more than apart from each other. We have laughed more than cried and celebrated more than commiserated.

In short, it’s been a grand 30 years and I couldn’t imagine having spent it with anyone else,

Yeah, I’m an idiot but I love you for supporting my idiocy, my foibles and nuttiness all these years.

Here’s to you, Helen, Light of my Life, the Voice and all the characters of reason on my blog and in my life.

I would still be on the Shelf without you, but, then again, you know that.

I hope my husband says the same wonderful things about me after we've been married for 30 years.

Congrats. You indeed married above your abilities. You're a blessed man (and Helen a blessed woman I might add).
