Dear Eileen: What a Glorious Life

The engaged couple, Christmas 1995

Eighteen years ago today
I got engaged to my beautiful lady.
And now, looking at all the time,
filled with love and patience
and five precious, mysterious children,
with arduous work and failure and success,
with not much richer and mostly poorer,
and even with illness and pain,
there is only one thing I can say:
"What a glorious life we've had!"
I am so grateful to God and to you, Eileen Janaro.
I love you!
May we always be together,
and continue to share with tenderness and courage
whatever God asks of us.
