Today is the fourteenth anniversary of a day I will never forget. It is the day that I went to sleep knowing that when I woke up – on October 2nd – that my life would never be the same. I was marrying Andrew and we were starting a wonderful life together.

I knew that he was the one for me. What I didn’t know was where life would take us. I didn’t know that we’d have three amazing sons. I didn’t know we’d make lifelong friends while living in the Midwest (we moved out there just after getting married) and I didn’t know that we’d be back east before the millennium.

I didn’t know that there would be illnesses in the family or that there would be huge worries. I didn’t know about the hard times that would come. And I didn’t know that there would be so many wonderful, fun, and joyous times.

All I knew was that it was right.

And I still know that.

    Mazel tov, Wendy and Andrew. L’chaim — here’s to many more years together.

    (I will celebrate my 14th wedding anniversary in December, and like you, also 3 children richer. I know EXACTLY how you feel, Wendy.)
