Double Celebration

It’s always nice to have something to celebrate in the midst of a trial. Well, today I have two somethings to celebrate.

Eleven years ago Jen and I were married and I have to say, I thank God every day for her. She has stuck by my side through thick and thin, through lame-brain ideas and crusty moods, through dreams and nightmares. She has helped me, comforted me, encouraged me, and yes, when needed, reproved me. She has loved me. And during this time of cancer she has been my rock, always there, patient, understanding, caring. I’m not sure I’d be able to do the same in her shoes. She has shown me what love is all about, what it means to sacrifice, and how loyalty is fleshed out in every day life.

She has indeed been a Godsend.

My second reason to celebrate is that today I turn 36 years old. Yes, I was married on my birthday. God has given me 36 years to enjoy on this earth. And enjoy them I have.

Now, in other news, the barium enema was yesterday. I won’t go into details but it was an experience I never want to repeat. The good news was that it appeared all the plumbing is working and there are no leaks. Hey, that’s a third something to celebrate.
