To be honest, I don't remember my wedding vows; I don't remember the details of the the covenant that I made with my wife of six-years-today, but I remember that they had something to do with sticking together in good times and in bad times.

This past year has thrown some bad times our way. Since we've been together, it has been, without a doubt, our worst year.

But also, without a doubt, it has been our best year.

In spite of everything, we've stuck together and have been there for each other. I have seen other marriages fall apart and am watching some disintegrate even now, but ours isn't one of them. If anything, I feel that ours is stronger than ever. Perhaps adversity is the acid test of marriage, and we have been tested.

I know that every year won't be as tough as this one, so I look forward to the future, and hope that we can stick together in good times as well as we have in bad.

Happy anniversary, Fawn.

It's so nice to be able to congratulate a couple on their wedding day, who have passed one of those acid tests. Here's to many, many more good years!
