Opposites Do Attract

29 Dec

December 29, 1979 … 29 years ago today Roger and I were married.  I remember the day … I was so worried that the weather would keep friends and family from sharing the day with us.  But my worries were for naught.  It was a beautiful day … the sun was out for a time and the trees were frosted in snow.

I really can’t imagine what life would have been like had I not met Roger Wencl.  Our courtship was rocky at best and there was a time when we went our separate ways.  But in the end, love won out and here we are. 

That old saying that opposites attract is very true for us.  We are very different people, and there have been those  who wondered if we were indeed still married because we very much go our separate ways at times.  But at the end of the day, we both know where we belong.

The things I love about Roger Wencl:

1. Roger can talk to anyone about anything at anytime. 

This is a quality that I very much admire.  I just can’t do that … but I must admit I am getting better at it.  It does have it’s downside, but we won’t go into that today!

2.  Roger’s work ethic is like no other. 

He works so hard with so little downtime … just a quick 10 minute snooze and he’s ready to go again.  

3.  He cares about people.

Roger spends countless hours volunteering at the Salvation Army.  In addition, he is a Big Brother to Omar. 

4.  He can do just about anything – from fixing a car to taking a coffee pot a part … and then putting it back together again  … he’s unbelievable … and most of it is all self-taught.

5.  He is a complete trivia buff and can give you countless amounts of  useless information on a moments notice.

6.  He always sees the best in people … no matter what they’ve done in the past.

7.  He is thoughtful.

8.  He is Mr. Neighborhood.

These are just a few of the endearing qualities that I have been lucky enough to enjoy over the past 30 years.

Oh we’ve had our moments … but in the end,  our love and relationship, our family, and our time together are stronger than they’ve ever been.

Happy Anniversary Honey!  Here’s to 29 more years together!

Love always,   Kim
