Can You Believe It!! Five Years

Today Nadine and I celebrate our fifth anniversary.  It was five years ago that we took this picture after our wedding and before our reception.


It’s been five years (did I mention that) and over that time, Nadine has become my best friend, my confidant, my advisor, my supporter, my reminder, my confronter, my lover, and my orangutan (she makes sure to pick all lint and hair on my clothes before I leave the house).  She has befriended my children and has become a great support and confidant to them as well over these five years (have I mentioned this).  Just a side note.  If my children need something from my, they write a note to Nadine because they know I will get the message.

She is the love of my life here on this earth and I today want to celebrate with her this grand occasion.   I am so thankful to the Lord who saw fit to bring such a wonderful person into my life.  As Jack Nickolson said in As Good as it Gets, “She makes me want to be a better person.”

Today I solute you, Nadine, for coming into my life.  I thank the Lord for introducing her to me.  I am so thankful for this day of celebration as I journey through life that I have such a wonderful person to share the road with.

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.
