It is generally accepted between Jennifer and I that we became aware of each other around this time of October back in 1994 – 15 years ago. Since that time we’ve been on the highest of highs and the lowest of lows together. As the vows say, through thick and through thin.
I haven’t always been the easiest person to be around, but Jen has been my advocate, my supporter, my fan, and my friend. She has seen me at my best and she has seen me at my worst. She has encouraged me, kicked my butt, cheered me, and jeered me when each was appropriate. Despite me being the problem child I was, we married 12 years ago, had children 7 and 4 years ago, moved multiple times, and are back home together where we want to be.
Over time, with her help, I have worked harder to become the man, husband, and father I should be. She has been through the hardest working times with me, so as I’m finally beginning to see real changes in myself it is only fair that she is here to benefit from the payoff. I hope never to be the person I used to be, and I want her to share in nothing more than the man I’m supposed to be. She’s earned it for putting up with me all this time.
