It's very commonly said that you never know when a life-changing moment is going to occur. Sure, there are some of those moments that are scheduled... weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, etc. But then again, there are those moments that come along in one's life that aren't scheduled -- that happen completely by surprise, and yet have a profound, life-long effect, totally altering the course of one's life forever.
For me, such a moment occured twenty years ago today. It was twenty years ago today, Feb. 26, 1988, that Eeees and I met in, of all places, the Brooklyn Public Library. I am eternally grateful to HKBH that this beautiful young lady chose to say hello to me on that day, allowed me to walk her and her sister to Ocean Parkway, and allowed me to continue seeing her. Since then, my life has never been the same. It's been a whirlwind of love, happiness, joy, comfort and sharing. It's been one where I have someone with whom I can share life's triumphs and tragedies. It's been one where I know that someone out there truly loves me.
Eeees, thank you for being a part of my life for these past twenty years. I love you and hope we have many, many more years together.
