Today, March 23, 2024, marks three significant events. It is two thousand and twenty days since I had my surgery, which has so radically changed my life. Charlene and I are celebrating six years of marriage, and this happens to be the 25th year we will know each other.

I am truly grateful for today. Two and a half decades of Charlene and me only makes me desire more decades together. Life is beautiful because of my wife.

Happy anniversary.
