Thirteen Years

Today marks 13 years of marriage for Hubby and I! Lucky #13. He was born on the 13th, so I don't feel like the number 13 means anything bad.

I just have to say that I love being married. And I love being married to HIM. (Most of the time, anyway!!!) I love coming home, knowing he'll be there with his quirky (read: dorky) greetings. I love it when he winks at me across a room and I know that he's saying "I love you". I love that he's such a good guy, like when he tells me that he helped an elderly woman to her car because it was icy. I love the feeling I get deep in my chest when he gives me a hug. I love that he can still make me laugh. I love it when he quotes movies and I don't know it, and I happen to see the movie years later and realize that's where the saying comes from! ("Hello, Willard!"). I love how he takes care of his parents. I love how he wants to do things with Pal, even though Pal doesn't always cooperate. I love that he loves me even though I've changed (read: gotten fat!) over the years. I love that he is a hard worker and is good at what he does. I love that he is a terrific budget-handler, because I'm not! I love that he enjoys hanging out with my family, too.

I could go on and on. He may wish I did! But all I really want him to know is that thirteen years later, I'd do it all over again as long as it's with him.

I love you, honey, Happy 13th Anniversary.

That was a tear jerker. I love that Greg guy too, but in a completely different way. He's an awesome uncle, one of my favs.


Happy 13 years to both of you. You both deserve a good one.

Congratulations! 13 years is a wonderful milestone, and that was a wonderful tribute post!

Thank you for your comment. It helps to know that others share the experience. Your mom and your family will be in my prayers. Alzheimers is really a family disease. I have found that with my grandparents, it hurts us (at least emotionally) much more than it does them because they don't really understand the suffering of their circumstances like we do. The first round of holidays that they cannot attends is always the most difficult.

Anyway - back to happy! May you have many more years of happiness together!
