I was going down the blogroll; and I see in "Ripples in the Ether" where Jason NT7S and his lovely fiance', Jennifer will be getting married in a few days. He came across a quote by Benjamin Franklin about "Choosing a Mistress" which would probably be better titled, "Choosing a Partner".
I read the quote, which he posted, and have to agree with it totally. Personally, I do not know where I would be without my lovely wife, Marianne. Later this year, we will be celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary. There are times that I could swear we were just married a couple of years ago; that's how fast time has gone by.
It's corny, I know, but just like the line from "Jerry McGuire", my wife DOES complete me. She is everything to me; and is without a doubt, not only my wife; but my best friend, too. Together we are raising a family; and I often confess that I don't know where I would be without them. Marianne, Cara and Joey are my anchor, my safe harbor. When things get tough (often enough) my thoughts turn to them; and sure enough, in a little while, everything falls into perspective.
Congratulations, Jason and Jennifer. My family and I wish you the best and many, many happy years together.
