I love my job. I love being employed. I hope that you have satisfying and meaningful work. This is not an essay for simplicity nor against having a job. This is a tribute to a friend giving up a great job for a great woman.
Awww if you want, it’s true.
It’s a risk.
It’s a sacrifice.
No job is “perfect”; hence without problems.
No relationship is “perfect” nor problem-free.
But, if you have the chance to build a lifelong love with someone while working a mundane job OR work a great job to return home lonely or to a contentious home, which would you choose?

June 13, 1987, that’s our wedding day.
My wife and I have a monthly tradition to celebrate all “13th” of the month.
Like most couples we celebrate our anniversary each year.
Today we’re adding another tradition I hope happens again.
We’re now celebrating every 10,000 days too. =)
Today is our 10k-wedding-day anniversary!
When I was a kid I hated math homework, but, over the years I’ve learned that I love math. Now, my favorite part of following sports is the analytics. 1

Today I’ll be visiting with some special friends. One of the subjects we well undoubtedly discuss is love: Family love. Parental love. Dating love. Romantic love. Marital love. The love for the arts, and love for the artists who create it.
I’m sure we will talk about love.
Tomorrow, my wife, Amy and I will celebrate our 326th month wedding anniversary. We’ll talk about our love.
After all this time you think maybe love would be a breeze, but no.
Selfishness creeps into my heart and mind so easily.

Today’s chalkboard: I will not carve gods.
When I was in elementary school I, like most kids, loved field trips. I loved them all, but one of my favorites was to the Field Museum in Chicago.
I loved the giant dinosaur skeleton!
Sex on the Second Level

Last night I was reading a book called, “Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome.” Not because I had any inclinations to have an affair – I don’t – but because there is “grass” and I don’t want to ever think that it’s “greener.” So reading about how her marriage is overcoming her affair and “How to Grow Affair-Proof Hedges Around Your Marriage” appeals to me.
“Blind Spots” led to her affair. “Blind Spots” led to the breakdown of their marriage.
We all have blind spots in our life; misguided thinking, bad decisions and the like. Often times other people can see our blind spots but we either ignore, deny, or dismiss them.

These last few days we’ve been looking at some Bruno Mars songs and lyrics since he was featured on the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Today is Amy and my 320-month wedding anniversary. Yes, I still count months because I treasure our marriage. MySilentScream is here Inspiring Great Relationships Every Day and I hope to inspire you to treasure marriage, whether it’s yours or not.
In “Marry You” Bruno sings,
Cause it’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you.

In Bruno, What’s On Your Mind? and Ruins and Regrets Bruno Mars described the dangerous relationships he pursued.
Women aren’t the only ones who live with the wounds of a broken heart.
Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” describes the pain of his own broken heart.
Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
‘Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

In Bruno, What’s On Your Mind? he reveals the kind of relationships he’s pursued.
In Our First Time he goes into more details.
And now now here we are
In this big old empty room
Staring at each other, who’s gonna make the first move?
Been doing our thing for a minute
And now both our hearts are in it
The only place to go, is all the way
His intentions are obvious.
His intents are clear.
Is that alright?
Is that okay?
Just in case she says, “NO!” he answers his own question.

According to a FOX Sports press release there were 115.3 million of us watching Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform during the PEPSI SUPER BOWL XLVIII HALFTIME SHOW.
I love drum solos; and as Bruno Mars began the show with a drum solo, I was like “Woah, he’s good.” As Bruno began to sing the crowd that filled our basement were impressed too: “He’s talented.” “YEAH!” Later my daughter Shannon added, “That’s a sweet voice.”
