“If you live to be 100, I hope to be 100 minus 1 day, So I never have to live without you.” -Winnie the Pooh

We live and work in a cynical world. A world that would like you to be just as miserable as it is.A world that claims  marriage is a dying institution. As a man , it's considered down right atrocious to go out with the boys in the working world and to be proud that you are happily married.It's easier to blend in  and chorus in on the jokes about  the bane of a married life than to admit that you are married to an amazing woman.

Every so often, we need reminding on what it means to be human and that some of us are truly blessed to be married to an amazing person.To take time to celebrate,affirm and love that person.....everyday,till the rest of your life.
