With age comes maturity. Often the young believe they understand all there is to know. Growing up means learning that there are things in this world that cannot be explained, tasks to be achieved, obstacles that must be overcome, in order to reach a place in life where you can be happy. You realize that nothing that came before that place of happiness will ever have meaning again.

Alex, in the last six months you've given me all I've ever wanted. You've shown me what it means to be loved, desired, and needed. My life began with you, and will end with you.

You are all I want or need, from here unto forever.

Happy anniversary.
