Twenty years ago today, I made the best decision of my life: I married my best friend, Cari (McGann) McGee.
I had just turned 23 a few weeks before and had big plans to become a nationally-known — maybe even internationally-known — sportscaster. The TV career only lasted about 6-7 years, which is probably about what the average marriage lasts these days.
Our marriage, though, has been anything but average! The fact that we’re celebrating 20 years together proves that. That’s not to say it’s been easy: nothing worthwhile ever is. I’m not perfect. Cari’s not perfect. And like every marriage, ours hasn’t been perfect, either.
But when you marry your best friend, you find a way to fight through the bumpy times. You work at it. You pray. You change. You come out stronger in the end. And the blessings flow. Grace abounds. Love endures.
I’m the luckiest guy in the world. Twenty years with my best friend. Happy anniversary to the love of my life, Cari McGee. I love you, honey.
