My sweet wife and I had a great day together yesterday on our anniversary. As I think about the day I also thought about something else. It suddenly struck me that we each only live this life for a few short years and then we are gone. What struck me is how amazing it is that another person would be willing to spend those few short years with me. What an amazing thing marriage is that two people would give their lives to each other and spend them together. What a gift, what a commitment, what an amazing thing it is that two lives become one for these few short years and we gift each other our lives....our only lives...to be with each other. It's a simple thing, but I'm profoundly impacted by one other person who would spend her only life with me. I am blessed.
