When my wife and I first started dating, we quickly discovered that we were made for each other. Our chemistry, our personalities, our values … we became one. No quote from Jerry Maguire lol. No drama between us. We knew. Immediately.
We had lots of fun learning about one another and we learned together. Music was among the first loves that bound us together. Music and food! I’ll save the foodie talk for another blog, but music … music is a fixture in both of our lives and will always be. She shared her favorite music. I sang her favorite music. We gave each other music. Our favorite musicians were the same. Among the CDs that we played over and over again was George Benson’s 20/20. His skills on the guitar are truly outstanding! Add his voice to the mix and his music is incomparable. I gave my wife the choice for this week’s video to celebrate our 12th Wedding Anniversary. She chose George Benson’s “In Your Eyes”. I definitely have to sing more songs from George Benson. His music makes us both so very Happy!
Happy 12th Wedding Anniversary, My Love! Here’s looking forward to many, many, many more Wedding Anniversaries to come! Our Lord God in Heaven continually Blesses our lives and I pray that we continue to do everything within our abilities to appreciate, to live, to learn, to love one another as passionately as we have For Always!
“I am nothing without you, my love. I will continually tell you that I don’t deserve you, but I will continue to spend the rest of my life trying.”
