Today marks 8 years Anissa and I have been married. Anissa asked me the other night if it felt like 8 years. To be honest I don’t know what 8 years should feel like…is that long, is it short?…
Some say 10 years is the new 50, but in general I think it’s more about how you spend that time together. For me, when I reflect on our marriage I see the wonderfully different stages of our relationship. Since being married there have been so many chapters…even before we were married. I have loved and hated all of them at some point…but I guess that’s how life is. There are ups, there are downs, but she is always by my side, we love each other unconditionally and more importantly we always support one another. I recognize I am fortunate to have found somebody who understands me so well.
Thinking about how our marriage was on day 1 and how it is now on day 2,920 there are obviously differences, but the core ideals, beliefs and love we have for each other remains the same. We are happy together in our own little world.
I have to say the past 2 years, since Cedrina was born, have been the most amazing to experience with Anissa. Since the moment I met her in 1999, this is what I have wanted more than anything else; it is what I thought of when I pictured happiness… to be with her, to have a family. She is my co-pilot, our journey has been amazing and our relationship is stronger than ever.
I never forget how lucky I am.
