My Funny Valentine

I'm taking this time to talk a little bit about the man I married. I love him, he loves me, we're married. We've been up, we've been down, we're still married. He's pushed, i've pulled, we snapped back to the middle and kept it moving. I was 15, he was 18 and we met. I was 16, he was 19, we were parents.

My husband's a complicated man. He's a stone face with a heart of gold. People think he's this mean bear of a man when in all actuality he's very kind. I don't mean to let his secret out but it's true. He's the type of person you want in your corner. I'm definitely glad he's in mine.

We've had our moments but the love has always been there. I've been in love with him since I was 15 years old. I remember the day we met like it was yesterday. We were so young. I never would have thought we'd still be together.

I'm not going to write a long, drawn out post. That's not our style. I just wanted to shout out the man that I married January 13, 1989.

Big ups to Tammy's man! I'm sure he treasures you, the kids and the life you've built together. I also sure that your the envy of NYC. (Smile)

How's the couples group going?

Love, peace and blessings

That is beautiful Tammy, A beautiful tribute...There is so much male and female bashing amongst our race going on in the blogosphere that this is a breath of fresh air to see a tribute to Black Love expressed so articulately and so heartfelt.

(1989...was a good year..That's the year I got married..June 3rd
will make 20 for us. Congrats on your 20th.)

Butterfly - Our couple's group ended. We both really miss it but met a lot of cool people that we keep in touch with.

Keith - That's exactly why I shouted my man out. If you believe what you read it seems like we don't love each other. Any plans for the upcoming anniversary?

Sunflower - Thank you. He is a good guy and i'm glad to have him in my life.

That's right Tammy give him his props! I thank God for the fortitude of the two of you. Marriage is hard work and it takes two...keep up the good work and many blessings for 20 more!

Love Ya,

That's awesome!!! I love when couples have that "stick-to-it-ness". Gives me something to look forward to when I get married. Thanks for sharing.
