Happy Anniversary

February 23rd, 2010 by Rob Willis Leave a reply »

Today is my Wedding Anniversary. My wife and I have been married for 19 years.

I would like to say that they have all been happy, but there were a couple of years there that we didn’t think we would make it. But love, dedication and persistence saw us through.

This day 19 years ago, was quite a memorable day, not only because it is the day I got married, but it was also the hotest day on record here in Perth, Western Australia.

The Mercury that day reached 46.7 degrees Celsius, which I believe is about 116.06 Fahrenheit.

Of course I was wearing a black tails suit, and got married in an old pre-war church (so of course there was no air conditioning), but other than the temperature, the day went without a hitch.

Nineteen years later, we have both grown in different ways. The girl I married way back then is not the same girl I am with today, and of course the boy she married then has changed in so many ways also.

Change is a good thing. If we always stayed the same, we would soon get bored of each other. Not to mention we would probably get bored of ourselves also.

Fortunately, we have both grown in the same general direction. My wife is very supportive of the ventures I have undertaken over the years, as I have been of here change of career recently. My wife recently left Nursing to become a drafts-person.

Through thick & thin, we have raise 3 wonderful boys, which of course present their own challenges.

Our Oldest Son, Jordan, is now 16 & believes the world revolves around him. (Pretty much the same as I did when I was about that age). However, he still gives my wife and I a hug & kiss when he goes to bed at night. He is a great kid & I look forward to taking him to the pub for a beer when he is old enough.

My second oldest son, Jacob, is turning 14 soon. He is our sports man. He loves his Australian Rules football, and he is very good at it. Of course as parents we tend to be bias, but I believe he could go all the way to the national league.

My Youngest Son, Isaac, has recently turned 10. He is our inquisitive one. He asks questions about everything. He is always keeping us on our toes.

All three of our boys are very polite, and generally do not go about killing each other. They really are great kids. I am very proud of them all.

So after 19 years of marrage, I think my wife & I are getting it together. After all it is a journey, and one I am enjoying and constantly growing in.

I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with this wonderful lady.

      Thanks for your wishes Rod.

      As you say, too many people give up too easily.

      Once the feeling has diminished, they start looking elsewhere.

      Love is a decision.

      Thanks Again,
