This April 10 (2009) will mark the 10-year anniversary of my marriage to my wonderful wife, Lisa. And, last night we got to celebrate a little bit early by joining our local theatre for a night of “That’s Amore” – a cute little game where couples answer questions about each other “Newlywed Game” style.
And my wife, who HATES getting up in front of people actually got on stage and joined me in the competition — and we won!
But, this isn’t really about the game…
The fact that my wife would get up on stage (looking smokin’ hot I might add) and participate in this event meant so much to me. I know how much she hates/fears being on stage and the fact that she was willing to do this… I know it was because she, like me, will jump at any chance to show our love to each other.
For these past 10 years I have just been so blessed. Not only has Lisa given me complete marital bliss for the past 10 years, she (and God) have given me a wonderful family that has far exceeded my childhood dreams.
As I child I had a dream of getting married and having a family with many children; but the reality has been much sweeter than the dream ever was! Each day I wake up (even when it is to crying little ones) and think to myself how blessed my life is and how lucky I am to have my wife and kids.
A few people have chided me about not blogging enough. But the truth is, my blog would get boring to readers quickly. Really, aside from the ocasional gripe about the theatre, all I ever feel like writing about is Lisa — my love for her and my love for the kids… And maybe now and then about my love for my friends.
Plus, I work on the computer — so when I get some “free” time the last thing I want to do is MORE on the computer. I want to spend wime with LISA, CHRISTOPHER, DISNEY, SAMANTHA, and TAYLOR!

Congratulations to you two, especially Lisa for overcoming her aversion to the stage. Blessings to all of you. 🙂
Wish I could have been there to see L on stage (prolly for the last time for the forseeable future?)… and your posts would not be boring to some of us. I can’t wait for your 10 year celebration.
Umm… I wouldn’t say the aversion is overcome. It was the best of circumstances for me to get on stage: next to my very best friend, in front of an audience of only 5, who also happened to be great friends!
Thank you Besty for all the wonderful things you said about me. I love you!
But it’s a step! 🙂
