The miracle

37 years ago today, the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen married me.

She is still the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

And did you get what
   you wanted from this life even so?
   I did.
   And what did you want?
   To call myself beloved, to feel myself
      beloved on the earth.”
        ~ Raymond Carver

It still feels like a miracle.

I think it always will.

I love you, Shannie.
