This is a blog post  as a Mother’s Day gift for my wife. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!  However unconventional this may be, I am following along the lines of a friend of mine, Steve Browne.  Steve once got a blog – for Christmas.

I wanted to take time out of my life and tell anyone who might come across this post that my wife is the greatest person in the world.  She has been with me since I was a misguided overgrown teenager, to where I am now, the  proud father of two wonderful young men – our children.

We are friends, business partners and our own little self contained support group.  She puts up with me doing just about what ever I want to do, as crazy as it may be.  But she balances me too. Sometimes I head down the wrong path and she is my wisdom and my guiding light.

She has also been a wonderful mother. She has always made sure that our family, whoever that may be – at any given time is always well cared for. Her loving ways are known by all who come in contact with her.

It was only within this year I began to understand how tolerant she is.  As my cell phone dings and chimes and buzzes and goes through all of my social media machinations, she merely rolls her eyes now and then. What a great wife!

I could go on but the message is clear – for nearly 35 years now – Sheila (Marrin) Ryan has  been the love of my life and the best thing that ever happened to me.  Happy Mother’s Day!
