Nearing 11 Months

by dwaynekilbourne on June 14, 2011

We are rapidly approaching our eleventh month together, and I must say that it has been quite the ride. I continue to wake up each and every morning thankful to have such a beautiful and inspiring woman right there beside me! Of course, I am a little anxious to reach that one year plateau next month (July 23); certainly, the past ten and one-half months have flown by at a rapid pace, but I have cherished all of the great memories we have molded together over that time. I must take a minute, however, to say that I am a bit disappointed. Sitting here on this very day, I am left with a personal milestone that I reflect on each and every June 14th. It was twelve years ago today that my step-father, Dale Blessing, passed away; he was a great man. While he had endured great heart-related medical issues over his years, I did not expect for him to pass away a mere six days after I graduated from [Clio Area] high school. Knowing that I have found such a beautiful and loving woman, it disappoints me that Dale will never get the chance to meet Elaine, and she will not get the chance to meet the great and inspiring man who helped to mold me into the gentleman I am today. It is unfortunate, but it is a mere reality of life. Certainly, it reminds us to cherish each and every day and to make everyday count because we simply never know what tomorrow brings!
