I've had some personal achievements that I won't bother listing, mostly because it just comes across poorly. So skipping past that kind of
....There was a day, and I cannot even remember when. I was sitting with my wife and we were watching TV. It was a regular old day, nothing special.
I think it was later at night, because we were alone (no kids). I looked over at her, and just had this sudden realization, "You did it....you
really did it". I can't say marrying her was the greatest moment, because that was just dumb kids doing what they thought they were supposed to do.
But when I realized that we had come through the worst of it (the little things, like learning to live with someone else from a different family/habit
history without assuming only you do it the right way), and would last forever (at least, for one of us).
Its important, you know? Marriage...that is one of the biggest things you can do in life. And to have done it "right"....not everyone gets to go to
their grave being able to say, "I have loved, and been loved". It really is an incredible honor for someone to bestow upon you....to love you
unconditionally, and sit with you through your worst moments. And to have had that honor...not everyone gets to say that.
Its the foundation for everything else in my life. My kids (another great moment) are galaxies in the universe that is my marriage. Enormously
important, but really nothing when compared to the foundation that supports them.
To be honest, I think i tried to tell this to my wife at that time. She just pretended to listen and nudged the volume on the TV up a notch.
LOL....so much for a romantic ending to this story. But I do mention this quite a bit here. Its the biggest thing I've ever done, and I love to
revel in my success.
