Lanusenla (Eunice) and I have been married for six years now. Today, is our wedding anniversary. The feeling is great. We’ve had the best of times. We have been there for each other. We have faced challenges together. Despite the odds, we’ve made it. This is no fairy tale wedding. It is in every way just a normal wedding but we’ve grown stronger in mutual love, mutual submission and mutual respect.

I have a comment about anything and everything (a problem when you cross 35 I think) I wanted to tell my wife so much. And what did I finally tell her? Strangely, I was lost for words. I have always loved Shania Twain’s song, “You’re still the one”.  It perfectly fits our case. And this is what I told her:

(When I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you’re still the one I love.)

Looks like we made it
Look how far we’ve come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we’d get there someday

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together still going strong

(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night

Ain’t nothin’ better
We beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen
Look at what we would be missin’


I’m so glad we made it
Look how far we’ve come my baby
