|Taking a stroll in Balboa Park with my wife of twenty-three years.|
People in my new hometown ask me, "how do you think you will do in the Iowa winter?"
I already know the answer -- I have a happy wife and when she's happy, I'm happy. I didn't relocate for the weather, I relocated so my wife and family can spend time with her side of the family. My wife never complained when we spent our first twenty-three years of marriage close to my relatives on the west coast. Now it's my turn to spend quality time with the numerous siblings and relatives who are welcoming us with open arms.
My personal happiness is not measured by the degrees on a thermometer. I will always have a warm heart. Each day is a gift. The people in my life, near and far, are a gift. And the best gift I have is a good wife. God bless her and all the wives like her who make their husbands feel special. Please add your comments below.
