    This is a wonderful thing, to cherish the bride of your youth. There is magic in the years that have been shared. To many are willing to discard these diamonds. In the end some realize that what they had was what they truly needed but can't go back.

    I could read pretty much read these very words to my bride of 37 years (would be more but for our four marriages!). I note, however, that love like this is ineffable, and you have conveyed that feeling very well.

    I appreciate your kind words. This lady has always done more than her fair share, without any complaints and is continuing to do so in our later years. Why would I not love her?
