Interesting comparisons and how trivial it all seems when weighed against the desired outcomes of our lives.
Outstanding job. You hooked me with the first line and I giggled several times. Havinga death phobia since I was a kid, I often have had panic attacks over last times. You did A nice job with the transitions and the message is one many in their 40s or so will really relate to.

Nice article. I couldn't help but smile thinking of my own first home cooked meals with my husband. When I asked him if he liked it, he would often say, "It's fine." In his mind that was a compliment. In my mind that meant it was satisfactory, but nothing more.

My favorite was when he was really getting into eating and I would say, "I guess you like it," he would often say, "I'm just really hungry."

Eventually he figured out neither of those were the "right" thing to say and we still laugh about it 20 years later!

I liked your shift from firsts to lasts and I liked your ending. Good job!

Congratulations on your well deserved win! I loved this article for so many reasons. The humor, the devotion of a young man towards his bride, and most especially the devotion to God!

I loved it...keep on writing, and May God continue to Bless you and yours always~
