Meeting Sharon -- which happened on this date thirty-five years ago. Here's hoping for thirty-five more!

Getting the day off on our anniversary -- woot!

[I bet I do this one every year, but oh well, I'm sure we'll all manage just fine]:   

I am grateful for my wife Sharon, who celebrates her birthday today.  The best things in my life are [still] her, and our kids (which I wouldn't have without her) -- so she gets double bonus points for being here!  xoxox

Love!  All the people that I love... all the people who love me... the swellness when those two manage to intersect and create a joyous Venn diagram...  all that sutff!

Sharon and I have wallowed in the good days, and soldiered through the bad days, together for twenty-nine (official) years now.

My companion and life partner Sharon, who celebrates her [mumble-umble] birthday today -- she is The Best®!

There have been rare people in my life whom I have considered companions. For me, the word has connotations including things like “welcoming the sight of them every day” and “wanting to hear the mundane quotidian details of their lives” and “always eventually finding a way to resolve differences somehow”. When I was in high school, for example, my friend Cheech was such a companion. Today, although we are separated by thousands of miles and months of silences, I still consider him one of my best friends.

Since I met Sharon, she has been my companion, and all that that implies. She deigned to marry me on this date twenty-eight years ago, and I remain deeply grateful that she did.

My wife Sharon -- we're still together, and it's her birthday today!

All the ways that love enriches my life. Happy Valentine's Day to all who want to hear it!

[Error: unknown template qotd]I admit that such relationships face their own unique challenges, but they have just as much chance of being true and lasting as any other relationship does. I'm good with it.

[Error: unknown template qotd]My gut tells me that, if you manage to fall “back in” love with someone, then you probably never really fell out of love with them in the first place.

This mornin, after I dropped Sharon off at the office, I drove off and noticed a woman in the distance who kinda caught my eye and made me say “Heyyy...” inside my mind -- basically she struck me as attractive. And then I suddenly realized that from that distance she looked kinda like Sharon. But I know it wasn't her cuz I just left her back at another building...

Meaning: I am married to someone who, after all this time, still turns my head. I am a lucky man!

Well wait a minute: are we talking about attraction or relationships here? This question is mushing them up!

Attraction doesn't take much commonality apart from biochemistry -- but for a relationship, I think some common values and perhaps goals are essential. Differing interests I think you can work around, if you share a set of values that encourages each of you to be yourself...
