On this day, twenty-six years ago, I left the home of my parents and drove seven hours to stand in a chapel I’d never seen before, take the hand of a boy I barely knew, and start a journey I wouldn’t have believed if you had laid it all out for me then and there. I had nothing more to give him than an innocent promise, but he accepted that, gave me his name in return … and the two became one.
I love you, David. You’re a tender husband, a gentle father, a warrior, servant and shepherd … and I am still amazed that you chose me.
Happy anniversary. 🙂
