When I look back at my life, I realized that most of what I have conquered was with Jeff by my side, the things I have accomplished, he encouraged me all the way, the fears I battled, he battled them with me and I have loved him for all of that and more! Having your best friend with you always, can be a big advantage in life. I thank my Heavenly Father every day for Jeff. How blessed I am to be his wife! To watch him become a Father and a Grandfather, only deepened that love, He became something that he was never really taught. He loves his kids and his grand kids and they in turn love him too.
So even though he is miles away, I pray that he really knows how much he is loved. How better my life is ...because he is in it! Yes, I can still remember 31 years ago, waking up early in the morning...too excited to sleep and saying to myself " today I get to marry my best friend! " And like I have told him many times before, I still wake up every day and get excited that we get to have another day together! I try to never take that for granted! Happy Anniversary Jeff!
"Marriage provides an ideal setting for over coming any tendency to be selfish or self-centered....Pure love is an incomparable, potent power for good, and the foundation of a successful marriage." ~Richard G. Scott
