So far, I have been blogging about the kids with barely a mention of the person who endured 27 months of labor to bring them into this world. Yes, my wife Amie. Let me start from the beginning…
I was enjoying a life of fun, friends and looking for ‘Ms. Right’ even though I wasn’t Mr. Right. (Isn’t that what most single man and woman out there are doing?). When I started dating Amie, I never thought ahead to having the union I presently enjoy. I was just happy to have a girl friend. Ten years later, she has given me 3 exceptional kids, provided me with the best life a man can want, loved me unconditionally and made me into the man I am today.
Now I have always been a believer though never close to perfect. I never thought I was deserving of any extra blessings in life. Needless to say, I am still racking my brain as to why I was singled out to be so blessed. Whatever it was, it must have been HUGE because I am still reaping the rewards.
I call my wife ‘Angel’. Most spouses have pet names for their partners. Most of these names are just that, names. In my case, when I call her Angel, I sincerely thinks she’s an Angel. I have never met a more faultless human being, who would not only give you the shirt off her back, but launder it weekly too. I don’t mean to brag here, for those of you who are reading this and living in a not-so-perfect relationship, but we have never fought once, never go to bed without each other and support each other in whatever the other choose to do. Whether it’s me performing, her running a marathon and also her food catering business or attending University to get into Dentistry. That’s what makes our relationship work. There is no selfishness on either of our part.
Each day, my thanks is for my cup that is running over with blessings. (Kids, wife, job). I have attended a few weddings during the last few years and sad to say, most are kaput with some lasting less than a year. Now she thinks that she has a good catch in me. I know better, I have caught ‘The Big One’ and this blog, lucky for me, is not about ‘The One That Got Away’.
