Happy Anniversary

It’s funny how important dates tend to stick with you throughout your life. For example, we can all remember our birthdays even though there are several who would like to forget theirs. We can usually remember other important dates that happen to each of us. My parents can recall where they were in 1963 with John F. Kennedy was assassinated and I can still remember where I was in 1969 with Neil Armstrong first stepped out onto the moon. But all of these dates pale in comparison to what I was doing 12 years ago. It was at that time that something happened in my life that I will never forget. That evening, with Trina at my side, we walked down aisle hand in hand looking into each others eyes while organ music played. People sat to the left and right of us and watched as we slowly walked to the front. There I stood gazing around, a tear in my eye. After so many years I was finally going to do it. My life after this moment would never be the same. How could it be? I mean no one thought this day would ever come. I was so happy and to have Trina at my side was the best part. The memory of that day is still very strong. I can hardly wait to get home to celebrate this anniversary with my wife. After all, how often do you get to see the first night game at Wrigley Field? I know that the game was not official because of a rain out in the fourth inning, but it is still pretty special. I hope Trina hasn’t forgotten this anniversary. How could she after all that we have been through?
