Judged

If I'm going to be judged, I would hope that I would be judged by my accomplishments, though they may be few, and not by my words, though they are many.

Which Person Are You?

A person can be the person you think they are, they can be the person they think they are and there's the person they actually are. There are very few people who are all three. I was so amazed when I found one, I married her. The only problem was for a long time she wasn't sure which me it was she married.

I Don't Raise Hell Anymore

I don't raise hell much anymore and when I do, I'm usually the only person who is aware of it. I can still think pretty fast, it just takes a while for the action to start after the thinking is done. It may take me a day of walking to absorb the beauty I used to run past in an hour. However, if you need the company of a friend and you enjoy the warmth and beauty that life has to offer, I'll walk with you.

Remembering

It has been my experience as a married man that it is best for me to forget my mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.

Go Farward

Go forward with eyes open and a strong stride. Be fed by the strength of our fathers and the patience of our mothers. Look back only for reference and reminiscence but pause only a while, for it is not for yesterday we strive, we strive for a better today and tomorrow and for those trusting souls that follow.

This is my Valentine Card from Amber, she said she didn't want me spending half the day looking for my glasses. Oh, by the way, Happy Valentine's Day to all you wonderful gals out there!



Happy Anniversary

Well, today marks the forty-first year since I made it official to those that needed to know that I loved Amber McPherson, that I wanted to be with her and her with me forever more, and that I could no longer be just 'best friends'. I have no regrets, not a thing would I change. We have shared laughter, sorrow, doubt, and the bright fulfillment of a beautiful family. Yes there have been tears and apologies, but never lies or unspeakable secrets. We walk slower now, we sometimes forget why we walked into a room, but our love for each other has never flickered, rather it's grown in brightness and strength as it lights the pathway to forever.
