The Cinnamon Girl and I have been married nine years today and I love her more now than I ever have.
We met later in our lives, The Cinnamon Girl and I, later in our lives after we’d lived a little, after we’d had children, after we’d been through ups and downs. We met when we were adults. We met when we were certain of who we were apart from other.
We met at the perfect time.
The single, best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life was marrying The Cinnamon Girl. Simplest. Easiest. Best.
Early in our engagement The Cinnamon Girl and I made another decision. This decision is easily the second best decision I’ve ever made in my life.
I don’t know which of us posed the idea first but I would guess it was The Cinnamon Girl because she is both more insightful and more wise than I. We made the decision to treat each other with kindness, always. We decided that kindness would be our default when talking to each other and about each other. We determined that we wanted to treat each other as well or better than we treated anyone else.
When you’re blessed enough to be married to someone like The Cinnamon Girl, being kind is very easy.
We’ve lived through nine years together, nine years of raising kids and watching them grow, nine years of career ups and career downs, nine years of weaving our closeness ever closer.
Nine years of kindness and charity and love.
I am a better man now than I was before. I am a stronger man. I am a kinder man. That’s what the love of this woman has done for me.
These nine years have been all but perfect. I know the next nine will be even more wonderful.
Happy Anniversary, Cinnamon Girl.
