Well Jason is sleeping in this morning enjoying his much deserved and needed vacation, yesterday afternoon when I spoke with him he was forcing his eldest son to push mow part of the yard, oh the joys of parenthood!
Well Happy Anniversary! Wait you thought I would say Happy St. Patrick’s day but no this day is not known as that in my household. On this day 9 years ago I married my beautiful bride. It has been 9 years…. 4 years of the Army, 3 children, and here we still stand. Many of you may be saying 9 years, that is nothing! Well, I believe in this day and time, every day is an accomplishment. There are so many people who give up so easily and call it quits. Marriage isn’t easy, it takes work, many days you can’t stand the person on the other side of the bed but you keep going (I of course have never felt that way, my wife is wonderfully perfect 😉 ). So on this day every year when everyone else says Happy St. Patrick’s Day, I will always say Happy Anniversary because of the beautiful wonderful woman who 9 years ago today, agreed to be my wife. But in the spirit of the day Cothrom An Lae Shona Duit (Happy Anniversary in Gaelic)!

He who loves his wife loves himself
