Unlikely Connections in Oz

It truly is a small world.  Who would have thought tonight I’d walk into the executive lounge at the Melbourne Marriott and get into a discussion about the Big 12 football conference with 4 other people from the US?  One lady’s daughter graduated from TCU’s School of Nursing, and the conversation was all about the new stadium and whether Gary Patterson (the TCU football coach) was susceptible to being spirited away from Fort Worth by another college.  Unthinkable!  Anyway, just when you think you’re a million miles from home, something like this happens and you’re back there again, if only for a few minutes…

Blessed beyond belief!

To My Wonderful Husband,

You amaze me at times I don’t expect it. You cherish me in subtle ways I may not see. Your desire for the best for me sometimes clouds your decisions when your only goal is to make me happy. Your love for me is abundant and something I tend to take for granted. You are always willing to sooth the savage beast within me when it rears its ugly head.. Today I want you to know that I do see all that you do for me. I do see the many ways that you love me. And I do see that I am blessed beyond belief to be your wife. Thank you for the best Valentines Day present ever!

I love you with all of my heart.

Your loving wife

Happy Valentine’s Day to My Beautiful Wife

Seems like we’re always apart from each other, with me in Detroit all those years and in Melbourne in 2012.  Well, I can’t be in Sydney for the 14th with you but I CAN send this message about  some of the many reasons why I love you so much!  Happy Valentine’s Day my darling, and I’ll see you on Friday!
