I’ve been a bit scarce around these parts this past week as I’ve spent the week investing in some of the relationships that really matter to me, especially with my wife who celebrated six courageous years with me!
It’s amazing to me that it’s been that long – in some respects it feels short and in others it seems like it should be a lot longer. Regardless, the timing is perfect.
My wife has been a constant source of strength and inspiration for me. In fact, she’s one of the reasons that I have continued to write for as long as I have – when I first started blogging I spent a lot of time writing about my relationships and how they were working (or not) and she was the subject of many of those posts.
As we continued to strengthen our relationship she gave me cause to continue to write and to continue expressing my thoughts in written words. She gave me amazing stories to process through writing and two amazing children to provide consistently-cute pictures on various different outlets.
She’s one of the reasons that I still blog and that I still love what I do.
Of course, she’s much more important to me than just content for a digital journal – she keeps my heart and head level and at ease and is my best friend in the world. I couldn’t do most of what I do today without her input and perspective.
In fact, many of the critical business decisions that were made historically had her fingerprints all over them – and she’ll never be credited publicly or thanked but she and I know where the credit is truly due.
She has never quit on me even though she has had a million-and-one reasons and I love her so much!
If you’ve been impacted by my work and my blog posts then the next time you see my wife you should thank her big time! She powers every single one of them.
