Today is Christmas Eve, but the day has a little different meaning for me. Today is my 29th wedding anniversary with my wife of all these years, Angela.
The good Dr. West knows that I am flawed, and possess many shortcomings. Yet, I still strive to be the best that I can be, as a man and husband. But to the mother of my two daughters, Aubrey and Austen, I want to honor this Proverbs 31 woman. Angela is tough, direct, and driven. She is also very funny, talkative, highly intelligent, as well as warm and loving.
She is the oldest of five siblings, the only daughter. She is often sought out for her counsel. Y’all have come to know her through her own blog, The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela.
So, on this day, I just wanna say Happy Anniversary, Angela, and I hope you will keep me around for another year.
Love, your husband,
