Thank You My Best Friend for 13 Years of Marriage

A White Rose

'The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love,
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petals tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.' -- John Boyle O'Reilly

I forgot you got married on my birthday. I was late for the wedding, I got there just as you were coming back down the aisle.

Ah, memories.

don't look now, but male bloggers everywhere are now hoping their wives don't see this post! (Smile!)

Seriously, what an amazing, gorgeous post. May you and Mrs. Pops share many happy healthy years together. Congratulations, my friend. z

Papa Frank said...

Thank you so very much for your kind words my friends. Mama Frank went to see her little brother up in Chicago and her mom was flying out from Oregon as well. I posted this in case she might get a chance up there to check our blog. She is certainly my better half. She keeps me grounded and her strengths fill in my own weaknesses. She has been my best friend and I have never had one day of marriage that I would have given up for any day before I met her. She is strong and kind and good and I am eternally grateful that she and I share our lives with eachother and with the beautiful gift of twins that God has entrusted to our care. That was a train wreck of a run-on sentence but I can't even express the happiness that she brings.

Wish I could be that lucky! Again, best wishes on a happy day!
