Two years on

Posted by Oli on Wednesday 25th June, 2008

Two years ago today, my best friend turned into something more.  Since the summer of 2006 we have been even more inseparable than we had been before (if that’s possible) and I’ve found a new meaning to life and love.

I have no doubt that I would not have lasted as long as I did without Kati by my side – her relentless enthusiasm, her childlike playfulness and her positive spin on the most difficult things carried me forward in a way I wouldn’t have managed alone.

People say that love is the most important thing in life and that finding someone to love is the best.  Personally, I believe that friendship is more important – finding someone you trust completely and want to share experiences with, someone you can talk to, laugh with and be yourself all the time with.  I’m just lucky to have found all of that in one person.

To all those still looking, never give up hope and to all those who’ve found their “one” – don’t ever forget how lucky you are and don’t ever take them for granted.

I love you Kati, thank you.

  1. Happy Anniversary, Oli!!!

    I’m so happy for you and Kati… I’m so happy for both of you that you made it through all of this and have so many reasons to celebrate…

    I’ve been with my princess for over 21 years — married for 19… I don’t know that I would have made it through my transplant without her… I’m strong, and I’m committed (and sometimes should be committed), but she gave me a reason to live — she gave me the strongest reason to want to live… I have to imagine Kati did that for you too…

    I agree with you about friendship — but I find friendship and love inseperable… I think in a big way, they’re the same thing… Sure, there’s a different level of love between you and a buddy, and you and a spouse — but it’s really love when you’re talking and laughing, and spending your entire life with someone…

    I’m so happy for you and Kati, and Emily and A, and me and my princess… These are wonderful gifts we’ve received that allow us to stay with the people we love…

    Congratulations — I think you’re awesome…
