A Tribute, a Thank-You and a I-Love-Ya

Happy AnniversaryApproaching our anniversary this weekend (9th, I'm told), and jokingly she says it's time to trade her in, as this is how long the other one lasted. LOL Though she can be a wicked poot, I wouldn't and couldn't "trade her in." I know there's no one who would've shown the patience with me that was necessary for us to grow to this point, and she did that through some very trying times; and as I've gone through some extremely difficult situations (Joey, work and career stuff, all this stuff with the girls), she's always been there trying. Trying is worth more than most people give credit for. As a realist I know most of these situations are beyond the help of someone to say or do anything; but the value of knowing someone is there who wants to help and cares about you is enormous, especially to those of us who struggle with our self worth. She's been the biggest reason through what is probably the most difficult time of my life (and I've had some whoppers) that I've managed to manage. Being an optimist has always been my strength but it's not always enough. So don't worry, Love, you'll have to put up with me for a very long time, if you can stand it. Thanks for being my best friend and I love you.

Don't make it seem longer than it already does!

'You're the best!' I love you too, poot lover. Enjoy your anniversary... it has been a while since we have spent one together.
