(From Carl)
The Bible says that we love God because he first loved us.  I think that a similar dynamic works in relationships.  When I look at this woman, who has set aside so much so that she can focus on raising a family with me, it makes me want to work very hard to make sure she is glad she made that decision.  Lala has left her family and native land to stay with me.  She is quick to extend an olive branch and continually serves me and our daughers.  She is beautiful and pleasant and good.

While I knew that quick romances can be risky, we were able to see a lot of the things we liked and didn't like fairly clearly during our short time dating before we got married.  We could see things in the relationships of people around us that we talked about, and I could tell that we had the same ideals and goals for a spouse and a life.  We are well suited for each other.  Now that we have been married one year, our love is much deeper and stems from shared experiences that provide a foundation of trust and appreciation.

Lala, I love you and your willingness to take a chance on me.  You are the one for me, always.

We are so glad you are happy together. Thank you for doing things the right way. We hope that you reach 39 years as happy as we are. (Though right now I won't let Dad touch me or sleep in the same room because he has a sore throat and I want to come visit you without bringing any of his germs along.) Mom

You're making me cry. Happy anniversary! I know how hard it was for Carl to wait for you Lala, but you were worth the wait. I'm sure you feel the same about him.
