Taking a Chance

As I painted this sketch yesterday, I thought about all the chances I've been offered in my life, the ones I took and the ones I didn't.

And as my thoughts meandered back to younger days and decisions I'd made that impacted the course of my life, I knew with a deep certainty that the best decision I'd ever made, the one chance I took that affected my life more than any other, was to say "Yes!" to this man...

He's been with me through the ups and downs, the joys and the tragedies, the days that were filled with happiness, and the ones that left me reeling. He's a good man with a good heart, and I'm so thankful to have him in my life. He's the solid foundation of my life that has made all things possible.
