He must have created her for greatness, then saw I needed help, and then prepared her for me. There is so much she COULD have done in her life, but she settled for being my wife, companion, lover and best friend. I was 15 when I met her and 17 when I married her.
Lucky, Fortunate, Blessed? I cannot say for sure (probably all of the above), but I do know in life it has been my pleasure to have SHERRY for a wife.
I have said many times, most of the bumps in this marriage have been caused by me. Due to her forgiving Christian nature, she hung in there. She brought two fine boys into the world. They both love her and call her Mama.
Today is her thirty-ninth birthday. I love math it was and is, of my favorite subjects. But it still is a mystery to me that we could have been married fifty nine years and she is still THIRTY NINE.
As I go through all out old stuff, I always run across some award she was given. No matter where she worked, she was praised because of her work effort. If we hung the plaques and letters of commendations on the wall, she would really have what many call a ‘Vanity Wall’, but they are stored back. One day the boys will go thru that stuff and say, ‘Look here, I didn’t know mama received this award.’
But it is not the awards that make her SPECIAL. She was born special.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEETHEART, SHERRY!
