    Twenty Years on the way to 'Forever'

    Twenty years ago, I married my beloved, and it's the best day in my life, greater than the births of my children (and as we parents know, that is so powerful, you have to be experience it to understand it).

    I still am absolutely amazed that I rate that kind of wonderful blessing. I certainly don't deserve it, so if there's a thing like reincarnation and karma, I must have been a VERY good person in the life before this one.

    My wife is

    I'm not erudite enough to do this thread justice. My heart is so full that I can't express it correctly; there are no words, or at least I don't have an adequate command of 'em to let y'all know what I mean.

    But you can believe me when I say that I'm crazy about her, and I always will be.

    Twenty years...wow. It's STILL great.

    "(Your) wife is..."

    - Charming
    - Accomplished
    - Hot
    - Funny
    - Generally Wonderful
    - Clearly mad as a hatter for letting you lasso her.

    She is an amazing lady. You're a great guy. From what I can tell you are very good for each other. I don't see 'Forever' being much of a problem for you two. <3

    Twenty years is a good marker along lifes highway. It is salutary for me to think that November 2008 will be my fortieth anniversary.

    You both also give a person something to look forward to.

    Contrary to popular fashion - sometimes things do work out.

    Bluesman, I have marveled at the way you speak about your wife and the words regarding your relationship that you have shared with your virtual family. The awe you hold your wife in is truly inspiring and there isn't any doubt that you still find her fascinating. Congratulations on your 20 Sir and to your wife as well.
