Peter and I will have been married 6 years today. It was a simple ceremony surrounded by family and friends as it should be. Anyone there will probably not forget the best man speech by Harlan Ellison or the color of his shoes that day. I have most of the day in my head. There were pieces I was not there for that Peter told me about later. Peter made the wise decision to rent a bus to get all our out of town guests from their various hotels to the Emory campus. The weather was very nice that day. It was one of my favorite days.
Since then a lot has happened. Some of it good and some bad. The good things out weigh the bad. I am still very much in love with Peter. That has not changed. If anything it has gotten much stronger over time. We make a good couple. We share a lot of the same interests so there is never a time we don’t have something to talk about. We support each other in what we want to do. We hold each other when things are not the way we would like and tell each other it will be all right. We anticipate what the other is going to need and meet those needs. We work on keeping the other party happy which can make for a strange conflict that we sometimes have to give up on making the other one happy by letting them allow us to be happy with a decision.
We are looking forward to a day spent together. Some of what we have to do is rather mundane. We have to go food shopping. And some of it is for just sheer fun. We have tickets to see Pirates today and reservations at one of our favorite restaurants. But what ever we do today, we are going to enjoy being in each other’s company.
I love you Peter.
I am grateful that Peter and I got married.
