19 years ago I married the man of my dreams. David & I met in 1982 while we were in college at the University of Florida (GO GATORS!!). We didn't date for long but I definitely fell in love pretty quickly. After my mom passed away in 1985 David paid a visit, & we spent the next year talking to each other. When we did finally agree to meet up in 1986, we got back together & have been inseparable since then.
I admit it. There have been some rough patches over the years. It's really funny how marriage makes you notice things. It was typical, but after getting married I thought my head would explode from the frustration over finding out that David squeezes his toothpaste wherever his hand hits while I squeeze it from the bottom. Thankfully, we dealt with that one easily enough. We each have our own toothpaste. Yup. It was hard. ;-)
Of course there were harder issues over the years. On the other hand, there has been a deep & abiding love & respect for each other. We have a good, solid friendship based upon that love & respect & a few similar interests. We both love to read, listen to music & watch tv - just not the same stuff.
Yes, we argue. BUT we love each other enough to make those times minor. Marriage is work - hard work.
And I'd do it all over again!
I love you David. 459! AWBB! No matter what! Always & forever!
