Today, 14 years ago, I married you. F-O-U-R-T-E-E-N years babe, that’s about 12 years longer than any relationship I’ve managed to maintain throughout my life, except my parents!
And even after all this time, you’re the funniest guy I know and you still manage to surprise me. Like, yesterday, when I received a flower delivery at the office, with a card signed from Dick. I sat at my desk wondering if I’d received the wrong delivery, or if they’d given me the wrong card, then I remember, it was you, signing your card with my favorite nickname for you – Dick!
And then, I started thinking about what to write in my card for you…. I’m not terribly creative so here goes:
Roses are red, violet’s are blue, your farts stink, but I still love you!
Roses are red, violet’s are blue, you’re a pain in the arse, but I can’t live without you!
Roses are red, violet’s are blue, I want to punch you in the face, but I love you too!
Roses are red, violet’s are blue, you talk like a Dutchie but I still think you’re the poo!
You know babe, even though we’ve been tested and tried and stretched and hurt and grieved, we’ve also loved and lived and laughed together.
I know I make fun, but I am well aware that I am a total pain in the arse myself. I know I’m not easy to live with and that you are long suffering with me and my idiosyncrasies and I just want to say, thank you. Thank you for loving me and putting up with me.
And I just wanted to say…. Even after 14 years of marriage, after all the drama and trials and good times and bad times and sickness and health, I’d still choose you…. every single time.
Because baby…. I was made for you!
Happy 14th anniversary babe. If you’re wondering about the elephants, it’s because 14 year anniversary gifts are meant to be ivory and you know that’s not gonna happen!
I love you.
