I’ve said that every year I’ll republish this post on this date. How can I not? Nothing’s changed in the last 5 years except for just one thing; I feel even luckier. Happy Anniversary Susan.
The Luckiest Man In The World
I admit I’m not an expert on marriage and have the track record to prove it. But my guess is that you’ll be alright if
You marry someone who feels it is more important to be there for others who have less or are in need, than to be there for everyone.
You marry someone who works hard, never misses a day, and defines her performance only by the happiness of her customers.
You marry someone who when she first met your child of 6 years old, knelt down, looked at him eye to eye, said hello and then gave him a big hug.
You marry someone who loves with all her heart, the movies from the 30’s and 40’s because they always have happy endings.
You marry someone who cries tears of joy almost daily just upon hearing that a total stranger had a baby or if she happens to she see two toddlers walking, holding hands.
You marry someone, a single mother who from her teenage years has raised a beautiful person in her daughter with the crazy belief that “I want to raise her not to be like me”.
Susan, your daughter is just like you and it is the greatest gift you have given her. My son has known you nearly half of his life and I swear, he loves you as much as I do.
Saturday, I get to marry you.
I think we are going to be more than alright. It’s a trite statement but there is a reason someone came up with it. Now, I know.
I am the luckiest man in the world.
Till next time,
Grow The Business.
