My oldest son and his wife are celebrating their tenth anniversary today. Well, the actual anniversary date was yesterday, but they are going out to dinner to celebrate tonight. I'm so proud of them. They work hard, and they have two adorable boys, ages seven and two .
I remember their wedding; Eric was so happy that day, he was literally glowing! I know the bride was beautiful and happy, too, but as the groom's mom, I was especially conscious of his demeanor.
As a mother, you hope that your kids will make good choices and that they will be happy; Eric has managed to do both. Although I won't be around to see them, I believed they will be together right into their old age.
Of course, his wife is a saint. He can be a bit of a challenge--the oldest child syndrome, but she deals with him very well. I love the look he still gets in his eyes when he's with her, and he doesn't realize anyone is watching. Still smitten after all these years! May that feeling never fade.
