20 years . . .

Today is the 20th Anniversary of the day my wife and I began our relationship as more than friends.  Shortly after we started dating, I bought her a plaque for the wall that still hangs in our bedroom. It reads:

I Love You, More today than yesterday

And only half as much as tomorrow.

But, after 20 years, I’d like to make a slight adjustment to that.  It’s not because that is wrong, but because I want to emphasize one thing I believe to be true.  Love is not fate, or unavoidable – it is a choice.  So, today, I want to tell my wife this:

I choose to love you more today than yesterday,

And it’s only half as much as I’ll love you tomorrow.

Happy Valentine’s Day, my dear wife.
