My Anniversary

Today is my 14th wedding anniversary. As I look back through those 14 years and the five years we were together before, I recall so many fun memories. Yes, there have been ups and downs, sicknesses and health, richers and poorers, but we continue stronger than ever to this day.

We know that relationships are daily commitments filled with countless decisions. We both understand that our relationship will be only as good as the effort we put into it. As Paul McCartney told Chris Farley, “The love you take is equal to the love you make.”

OK I know that line came from before that. Just a comedy homage to Mr. Farley.

Our song from our movie:



Our song comes from the movie we saw on our first “unofficial” date. The Proclaimers “I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)” from Benny and Joon. Funny how the lyrics make more sense the older we get...

When I wake up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

If I get drunk yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm working yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you

When I come home yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm lonely yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who’s lonely without you
When I'm dreaming yes I know I'm gonna dream
Dream about the time when I'm with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door
