For my wife

Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by.
I say to myself, "You're such a lucky guy."
To have a girl like her
is truly a dream come true.
Out of all of the fellas in the world
she belongs to you...
- the Temptations

It's been utterly amazing watching you grow over the last 17 years. From teenager, to wife, to successful career woman, to mother. I have been truly blessed to be allowed to hold your hand along the way. And now, as you stand on the cusp of a long and successful writing career, I'm standing here holding your hand in eager anticipation of where this journey will take us still.

Thank you for allowing me to accompany you on the ride.

He gave me goose-bumps!(again) Is this guy too good to be true-or what. Please tell me you are an axe-murderer in your spare time "Milo" and I'll feel better.

we met at our probation officer's office. When I said in the blog, "thanks for allowing me to accompany you on the ride," I meant the bus ride back to our part of town.
