my-love-for-you-isToday Karen and I celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary.

It has been an amazing (and rarely boring) adventure together that has spanned multiple states, multiple careers and, of course, multiple kids.  Throughout it all, Karen has been my closest confidante, best friend and most loyal supporter as we attempt to stumble through life together.

I’m no great romantic, so I’ll leave it up to Rod Stewart to describe how I feel about my lifelong love.  These lyrics come from the song, “You’re in my heart” and I think of Karen every time it comes up on my iPod.

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul
My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You’re ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You’re beauty and elegance
You’re a rhapsody, a comedy
You’re a symphony and a play
You’re every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in me

After 20 years, I still don’t know what she sees in me, but to my darling wife and best friend, I love you and look forward to what God has in store for us over the next 20 years.
