Dear guests, thank you for coming to us today to celebrate the 11th
anniversary of our marriage. Eleven years ago I asked this woman to
marry me and was childishly thrilled to call her my wife for the first
time in my life. I can still recall the slightest particulars of that
day, up to my astonishment when I saw Helen in the awesome wedding
gown going down the aisle.

More than a decade is a long period; it makes up almost three
presidential terms and three Olympic games. But for me time has
elapsed too fast... they say this always happens when you are happy. I
am happy to be still violently in love with my wife and I appreciate
all her care and tolerance throughout the years. Of course, I should
admit that marrying for love was a reckless thing to do - but as Josh
Billings put it, such marriage "is so honest that God can't help but
smile on it"(1). Ladies and gentlemen, my wife and I were lucky to be
presented with some Lord's graces during this decade - the chief of
them is our son, Jim.
In these years we've done a lot together. We have built a house and
planted a garden; we have climbed the Everest Mountain and tried
parachute jumping. But most importantly, we learned to tolerate with
each other's habits and traits, to say "sorry" when you are wrong and
"I love you" on all other occasions. We learned to cherish every
evening spent with the family - even if it means doing nothing
special, just sitting on the sofa and trying to read a newspaper,
while Jim is rushing about the room imitating the sound of the
helicopter's engines. We learned being happy with what we have - and
we have a family, a son and you, our good old friends.
Of course, there were some ups and downs - but I must confess that the
former greatly outnumbered the latter. Like a good wine, a good
relationship becomes better and better with every passing year. It
worked for our marriage and still makes my wife and me happy.
Today I am offering to raise our glasses for love, the cornerstone of
any household, and hope to see you at our silver wedding party.
