Behind that number, 2,628,000, lies an infinite number of moments that have been increasingly joyful given that I’ve shared them with a person whose compassion, love, and deep commitment to our relationship have resulted in five amazing years of marriage. I speak, of course, of my loving wife, without whose companionship, strength, and constant faith in both me and our life together, I would not be at all the man I am today. Two million six hundred twenty-eight thousand minutes of bliss, passion, and understanding wrapped in a whirlwind that seems like just a blink of an eye. I can not imagine my life without her and I constantly give thanks to every possible cosmic incarnation that we share our life together.
Many of you will read this before she does, possibly even months in advance, as C. is not a daily reader of my blog. But I assure you that from 2,628,001 through the end of time, she will continue to have my undying devotion and fidelity in everything that we share. Happy Fifth Anniversary C. and if you’re reading this today:
I ♥ YOU!
See you in the funny papers!
