Today is Mrs. Okierover’s birthday. I wouldn’t be half the man I am without her by my side. She has been my moral compass, my consigliere, my best friend, and the great part of why I wake up everyday. She gave me three amazing children which at present have spawned three fabulous grand children. What we have together is the reason, at the end of every day, that I turn my Range Rover south and drive home instead of randomly out on the southern plains.
If anyone would have asked me 25 years ago if I thought I’d ever be married to such a great woman I would have told them “no way”. She is the center of my universe today and I am privileged to receive the warmth of her love every day.
I look forward to many, many more miles with you by my side.
Happy Birthday Mrs. Okierover.
