The First Fifteen


It’s hard to believe that 15 years ago I experienced the scariest day of my life and the most wonderful day in my life, both on the same day. I stood in a room full of family, friends and co-workers and publicly declared what I had known for years…I’m going to spend the rest of my life with my wife Thurraya.

Our marriage isn’t always perfect, but I know that the love we have for each other is real because we’ve been through the good and the bad and we’re still together. 

When two people have shared life, when they are really, really in it together, there is a quiet certainty in the way they take care of each other. A gentle touch in passing, a loving word right when it’s needed – every little thing seems to say, “I’m sure of you…I’m sure of us.”

Today is the perfect day to acknowledge how awesome it has been to have her as my wife. I am so glad that I am able to share my life with such a wonderful woman and with each year that passes I can’t help but love her more and more.I know that God really loves me, because He gave me a wonderful woman to be my lifetime partner and the mother of my children. Happy Anniversary.
