From seeing her overcome her fears to seeing her be the most selfless woman in the world, Michael’s marriage to his wife Sandra has been nothing short of incredible.
From the moment Michael first met Sandra, he knew that there was something different about her. She had a different glow about her, and she was someone who was more than just physically attractive.
“Ever since we met as lifeguards at Riverside Pool in the summer of 1985, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her,” Michael said. “It took some time for this to occur, but I know marrying you was the best decision I have ever made.”
When Michael and Sandra met as lifeguards, he knew that he wanted to be life partners with her, and that is certainly what they have become.
Through his marriage to Sandra, he has learned a lot of difficult lessons that only come with time. He has learned what a true marriage is, and that it takes a lot of give and take to make it work with the person you love.
“In a marriage, each partner has a subjective opinion that is valid,” Michael said. “Just because I don’t agree with Sandra doesn’t mean that either of us is wrong. Sandra’s perspective is just different. Instead of jumping to conclusions and jumping all over and starting an argument, I have learned over time to respect and understand Sandra’s point of view.”
Marriage is not the easiest thing in the world, but it is one of the most rewarding things. Michael and Sandra have many similarities, but they also have many differences, and that’s okay. Michael truly loves his wife, and he always wants to be there for her and provide for her, and he does his best in this every single day.
“I’m learning to become a better partner by trying to understand Sandra and then validating her point of view, feelings, behaviors,” Michael said. “Sandra’s point of view and respecting her opinion is an absolute necessity to have a healthy relationship.”
In every aspect of their marriage, honor is always present. Michael does his best to honor his wife every single day, because he knows that she is someone worth honoring.
Sandra is an amazing woman, and he knows that. She does so many things for her family and for Michael, and he is very thankful for her.
Through thick and thin, they are there for each other, and he is glad of that.
“Sandra is always making our house a Home,” Michael said. “She puts in countless hours of cooking dinners, doing the laundry and making every holiday and special occasion come together. She takes care of ALL the dogs and is always putting the family first. Everyone else always comes first, and she makes everyone feel special and welcomed.”
This is a woman worth standing by. Sandra is such a loving and caring individual, and her selflessness shines through every moment.
She is always making sure that the people around her are taken care of, and she is always dropping whatever she is doing to help people in need.
Sandra has many great qualities that make her who she is, and Michael loves her for each and every one of these qualities she possesses.
“Some things I admire about her are her humility, integrity, responsibility, compassion for others, respect for others, loyalty and resiliency.”
Others ALWAYS come first for Sandra, and Michael admires the way she is with other people all the time.
She also never gives up in any situation, and this is something that Michael can always get behind. Sandra works hard and she gives it her all in every situation, and people love her for this.
She also has a particular care for her family unlike any other.
As much as Sandra cares about all the people around her, nothing comes in the way of her and family. She shows such genuine compassion for them every day, and they are her world.
“She shows a commitment to family life,” Michael said. “Knowing that we will be spending the rest of our lives together is such a blessing. Sandra has always been the most important person in my life, and she has always been there for me.”
Sandra truly means everything to Michael, and he does not know what he would do without his awesome wife in his life. She is an amazing wife, mother, friend and companion, and Michael loves her to death.
“Sandra, thank you for always being there for me no matter what the situation is. Knowing that we will spend the rest of our life together is the best feeling in the world. Thank you for being YOU; always putting the family first. I love you.”
