"I’m glad it was long and difficult, because if I hadn’t gone through hell to get there, the lesson might not be as clear. You see kids, right from the moment I met your mom, I knew I have to love this woman as much as I can, and for as long as I can and I can never stop loving her, not even for a second. I carried that lesson with me through every stupid fight, every 5am Christmas morning, every sleepy sunday afternoon, through every speed bump, every pang of jealousy or boredom or uncertainty that came our way. I carried that lesson with me. And I carried it with me when she got sick. And even then, with what can only be called the worst of times, all I could do was thank God, thank every god there is or ever was or will be, and the whole universe and anyone else I could possibly thank. That I saw that beautiful girl, on that train platform and that I had the guts to stand up, walk over to her, tap her on the shoulder, open my mouth and speak."
