Fifteen years ago
Fifteen years ago, I invited Charlene out to help me pick out a new pair of glasses. That was the excuse. Where did I really take her? To Corner House Restaurant, near Casa Loma. After dinner, on a walk, I pulled the ring out my pocket and asked her a question, and the rest is history. Before I got married, I learned a lot about marriage from a counselor in seminary who was trying to teach us what to expect when we started counseling couples one day. Nothing, of course, prepares you. Marriage has been different from what I expected, probably harder, but in every way better than I imagined back as a single man. I’m a lucky (blessed) man because she said yes fifteen years ago tonight.
