Nonni and I recently celebrated being married for 29 years.
Why is because she is the absolutely the most perfect woman in the world FOR ME. It is the second marriage for both of us. Having had a failed marriage helped me to appreciate a great woman when we got together.
We both have a very optimistic, happy outlook on life.
We developed the ability to communicate with each other.
We both understand that it works best for us to pick our battles. Not every issue is important enough to have it the way "I" want it.
She is a very patient person.
May those who love us, love us. And those that don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if he doesn't turn their hearts may he turn their ankle so we may know them by their limp.... An Old Gaelic Blessing
