Life Imprisonment

Updated: Aug 11, 2021

We were so young and naive. However we were committed to building a future. We have had so many great times, amazing adventures and we are building a beautiful family.

It has not been all glamour and fairytales. Life always has its challenges and marriage is hard work. Having a child with a disability often derails marriages but it made our commitment stronger. Moving to Israel has opened a whole new set of challenges and the fact that you have not murdered me for the complaining means you either really love me or are really scared of me….

Like your favorite analogy we were 2 diamonds in the rough. To cut a diamond the hardest material in the world you use another diamond. We have been shaping each other’s diamond for a longtime!

Thank you for always having my back.

Thank you for always supporting my ideas and insisting I follow my passions.

Thank you for helping me find my voice.

Thank you for patiently waiting while I find better versions of myself

Thank you for joining the crazy ride and although you say being married to me is like being on a high speed car chase you obviously like the thrill!

Thank you for living a sleep deprived life while I make you go out every night and complain when you need 6 hours sleep!

Thank you for grounding me.

Thank you for being an example of someone who is self confident and just does not give a hoot what others think!

Thank you for being my teacher and a teacher and guide to so many others.

Thank you for all you do for the kids and the family.

Mazal tov to us!

28 is a significant number - the gamatria - numerology is “Koach” - “strength”. It also means we have avoided the 7 year itch 4x. I know you joke that they give you less time for life imprisonment. I guess it’s a good place when you find your best friend and life partner….. so to us L’chaim
