Sweet Lorraine…


October 2013

One of the great things I’ve really gotten right in my life is to remain teachable.  I haven’t been so pampas to believe I know all since I was 22 years-old.  When an old-timer offers his wisdom, especially about love and enjoying life or sobriety, I’m all ears.  So I’m watching the news the other day and they showcase a new song written by an old-timer to his wife of many decades who’d passed away.  In his mourning he wrote this song and submitted it for a contest.

Tonight I shared it with my wife for the first time.  I’ll just say it was a special moment.  I so love that woman.

So fellas, buy this song and share it with your wife.  We only get one shot at this, we have to make it count.

      Welcome to the club Sandra – I was in tears telling my wife the story, then she was in tears listening to the story. I’ve cried maybe five times in the 18 years we’ve been together – once when she said yes, once when my mom called to say that my brother and his new wife were too poor to buy food (they resolved that very quickly btw), once on the birth of each of my baby girls and last night. Very cool.
