The last twenty six years have been anything but boring. I’m blessed because I married my best friend. Through thick and thin he has been there for me. He has honored me and loved me. He believes in me and encourages me always. He is perfect for me.
Don’t get me wrong this doesn’t mean we never fought. Our old pastor back in New York use to say if you didn’t fight once in a while, then one of you isn’t necessary.
As different as we started out, we have become so similar. I have rubbed off on him and he has rubbed off on me. He is such a good man and has taught me so much especially how to love people. He has encouraged me in my relationship with God. I have grown and matured as a person because of his positive influence, love and guidance.
I love spending time with him whether we are doing something or just relaxing. There is no one on this earth I would rather spend the rest of my life with. The picture at the beginning of this post is the beautiful flowers that awaited me along with my favorite chocolates (Lindt milk chocolate truffles). We went out to a fabulous dinner (Bonefish Grill) and had a couple of martinis. What a wonderful evening. We exchanged cards and if you couldn’t tell by the picture, we gave each other the same exact card. The card read: True love is spending one day getting married…and the rest of your life feeling glad you did.
I’m so glad I married you Tom. I don’t regret it for a moment. I love you more with every day that goes by. Thank you for twenty six wonderful years. Thank you for treating me special on the other 364 days of the year and not just this one. You are great husband and fantastic father. Our children possess so many of your great qualities. You’re a good man and I’m glad you’re mine. I thank you for today and look forward for tomorrow.
I’ll always remain forever yours Nadine.
Enjoy these pictures from our wedding.
