Happy Anniversary!!!!



Happy Anniversary tomorrow to my amazing wife, Lesley! We have spent the craziest 29 years of marital bliss together. We met when we were just children and have been together almost every single day for the last 34 years. Imagine that! Spending nearly every single day with ME for that long! I already don't need to say another word about how amazing this lady is on the strength of that!

But I want to because I have so much to say. Look at us up there. Les is fifteen-years-old and I am sixteen. That was one of our first ever couple pictures and my all time favourite. We started out as best friends and that never changed no matter what life threw at us. And man! Life threw a LOT of stuff! But we came through all of it together, even if it was by the skin of our teeth sometimes. We did amazing things. We have so many stories that people wouldn't even believe. It's been so much fun. There isn't another person in the world I would have wanted to do this with except you.

Life is still chucking stuff around. Since my mum has been dying, I've watched you take so much care for her, shown her so much kindness and love no matter how bad things got. You made sure no stone was un-turned and that she got the best care throughout. You did the same for your best friend, Val, right up to the point where she lost her fight. You literally transformed her life before she left us with your astounding kindness. I am in total awe of you. I fell in love with you all over again. You do the same to everyone. Cooking and cleaning for the old lady across the road. Running around for the kids and grandchildren. I've seen you in so much pain you can barely walk, but just carry on regardless. No sacrifice is too great. You take on everyone's burdens as though they are your own, no matter who they are. You are the best example of what a person should be. You are an inspiration to us all. 

Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for taking such amazing care of me and loving me like no one else ever could even when I am at my very, very worst. I love you more now than I ever have, and I'm not just saying that because you got me the most awesome guitar for my birthday! LOL I am the luckiest person in the whole world to have you as my life partner and my bestest friend in the whole world.
