Wednesday, June 12th, will mark a very special day in Faye's and my life together. It will mark 40 years of being together!
It will mark 40 years of challenges, both good and bad, mostly good.
It will mark 40 years of paying attention to each others wants and needs, always being there for one another.
Has it been easy? Not always. Has it been fun? Usually, but not always. Was it worth it? By all means!
We were fortunate enough to find the right partner in our lives, to find love that just does not occur every day.
I can't think of anyone else I would rather be with, having gone through life's travails together and coming to Wednesday's triumphant 40th anniversary.
We have loved each other from the moment we met and today are much stronger than even the beginning.
People think love is just a feeling you get when you find someone you really care for. It's not! That's lust! True love is putting up with being different people with similar likes and arriving at the same place in the end. True love doesn't end over a simple argument. True love takes years to develop, all the while each giving a little here or there.
I can honestly say that Faye has been my true love, my true partner, always there for me and I always there for her!
If you are fortunate in life to find that, hang on for dear life, because chances are you will never find it again!
Happy 40th, my dear, and may we still see that 50th yet!
I will love you until the end and beyond.
From your #1 to my #1.
