Reflections for the month of February

February 28, 2011

As I reflected about the month of February, I realized it had been a good month for me. Mostly because I made progress toward my goals and also because I could reflect back on the past with some sense of happiness. I wrote the anniversary message below to my then wife but for some reason I never sent it to her… maybe that’s why she’s gone 🙂 Even though it is a glimpse of a time gone by I re-read it and smile because I am thankful… thankful that I had the chance to love someone that deeply and hopeful that everyone gets to experience that kind of love at least once in their lives.

My Darling,

Ten years… I can’t believe it has been ten years. What a ride you, me and the kids have had huh? I have loved (almost) every minute of it 🙂 I know one day (when we are old and wrinkled) that our kids will have the joy of getting married. We try to give our kids everything in life and the material things are easy but the greatest gifts life has to offer are not always in our control… among them, finding true love.

You and I found each other when we were pretty young. We were lucky. I love you, my wife. I know that what I can accomplish alone does not compare with what I can do with you by my side. Happiness, to love and be loved, these should be pursuits in life and they cannot be achieved in solitude and that is by design. Life is not meant to be lived alone and I thank God every day that he put you in my life. I hope he will put someone like you in the lives of our children one day.

I love you. I have from the moment I saw you and I will love you until my last breath. You will forever be, my Wendy
