Fifteen years ago on a beach in Negril, my life changed. February 14, 1998, I said “I do” to my best friend. Fifteen years later, the honeymoon continues.
Like any of us, we tend to catch life’s worst from time to time. Job changes, leaky basements, health issues, and more job changes. I’ve certainly had to tiptoe around my share of landmines.
I guess meeting in a church on Mother’s Day (nearly 19 years ago) put some positive, higher power mojo on our relationship right at the start!
It’s too bad that more than a few of my fellow midlifers have marriages that never made it to the double digits. Sadly, some of those who have crossed that threshold are working on exit strategies.
I’m so fortunate that at the fifteen year mark, we’re still going strong. Has it been easy? No, but it’s hasn’t been that difficult either!
Mrs. McCullough is as easy to love today as she was fifteen years ago on that beach in Negril.
Happy Valentine’s Day/Anniversary! I love you!
