Our life, our writing and who we are come together often. Sometimes we discover those who help us need help more than we do.
Each day I wake up, meditate, kiss my kids before they go to school and I always tell my wife I love her
The last part has many reasons, the biggest being how much she’s saved me in the 16 years we’ve been together.
When we first met, I thought she was something she wasn’t and she thought I was a kid who had a few issues.
The more we got to know each other, and when we started dating, I discovered she was as broken as I was and that together we became one whole person.
Tomorrow we celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary and she’s done more to help me find myself than anyone who’s ever been in my life.
She’s never questioned my motives, never told me I shouldn’t follow my heart and gave me the wonderful kids we have.
She’s my editor when I need help, my confidant when I need counseling, and she always believes I can write better than what I wrote before.
I see more of myself in her every day and I since starting TM I’ve begun to understand why we’re still together and why we need each other.
She’s the best part of who I am and I’d never have the courage to write anything without her love and trust.
I see now that I’m better than I was, but I’ll always be better with her in my life than I could have been had we not met and helped each other when we needed it most.
I find comfort in her by my side and I know I’ve found the person who makes me better.
