This post is scheduled to be published on January 14, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. Twenty-two years before this post was published (i.e., January 14, 1989 at 2:00 p.m. Central time), Margaret walked down the aisle and married me.
I still don’t understand why she said, “Yes,” when I asked her to marry me. But, I’m so glad that she did.
I pray continuously that our children will one day find a spouse who is as kind, loving, gracious, and giving as their mother.
She has walked through so much with me and because of me. Perhaps the biggest thing that she has given up for me is being close to her family. I appreciate her so much for that and for so many other things.
So, Margaret, if you read this, please know that I love you, I’m proud to be your husband, and I’m still amazed that you decided to marry me.
