Tuesday's Tribute - She said Yes.


Eight years ago today you said you would.



Despite a terrible year prior, a selfish wedding party, and a caterer who didn't seem to own any knives...



you looked me in my deeply hung-over eyes,
and told me that I would be the only one.

And you will forever be mine.



In great times, and in the others, here we remain.



I hope I never need to say it, but I always will.

I love you.

Tuesday's Tribute
Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
