Andrea is new to my blog nad the first thing I do is steal, err, re-blog the first of her posts that I see. Thank you Andrea! As I commented on her post, I realized I wanted to share what I wrote to her with all of you, so here it is:
Thank you for the fun post. I love that movie too. If we're really lucky, we're able to find someone to whom we can truthfully say, "You make me want to be a better man/woman" or even "You make my days better just by being in them."
And if we're really smart and stay really lucky we'll find ways to be able to truthfully keep saying them throughout our lives.
I've got the lucky part down! Well, 1 out of 2 ain't bad, right?
My wife is a teacher of special ed Kindergartners and First Graders and loves them. That's a good thing for me because I'm sure that she's thought on many occasions that when she comes home to me she is coming home to yet another special ed kid.
She has patiently stayed with this slow-learner (my words, not hers) for nearly 33 years. I can still truthfully say to her: "You make me want to be a better man" and even "You make my days better just by being in them."
As I said, I'm a lucky man.
