For My Baby
A few years ago today my baby, Jeanie was born.
And 31 years ago she became officially mine.
When two people have been together as long as we have, they know each other. I know her better than anyone on the planet because our life becomes the Story of Us. I know the timeline of her life: from childhood to adolescence to the teen age years. I know of her fears and festivals. Her tears and triumphs. Her misgivings and magnificence.
I met her on a now defunct college campus 60 miles from the Canadian border. And we hit it off, we became a couple, we fit together, we matched, we married.
And our natural outgrowth of life together, babies came, lots of babies. And those who know us know that after babies came husbands and wives and now lots of grand babies with more on the way…
So let me tell you why I love you, Jeanie and I will back it up with some
of my favorite pics of you through the years. I know you will say don’t publish them, but since they are MY favorites (at least some) I can 🙂
