Today is my wedding anniversary. 5 years. 5 years ago, we didn't think we would have to mourn the loss of a child. We didn't think we would have a preemie. We didn't think we would have to deal with post partum psychosis. We didn't think we would have a miscarriage. We didn't think we would have to deal with infertility. But we have. The reality is, when you choose to get married, you have rose colored glasses on. You are marrying the love of your life, and everything is going to be perfect. Things are not perfect. Life is messy. The problems you face can either make you or break you. In our case, it made us. My husband has been there through every moment, and I am lucky to have him. On our anniversary, I wanted to write a short note to say that he is my hero. He is my rock. He has stood by me through everything. I am so lucky to be blessed to have the husband I have. My best friend who has laughed with me, cried with me, seen me at my worst and been there at my best. Before we became a couple, I told my husband the song "Push" by Sarah McLachlan reminded me of him. I think that was his first realization that I knew he was the one for me.
"You've seen me at my weakest, but you take me as I am. When I fall, you offer me a softer place to land. You stay the course, you hold the line, you keep it all together. You're the one true thing I know I can believe in."-Sarah McLachlan, Push
"So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What God has joined together, let no one separate."
Happy Anniversary! I am so glad that you and your husband have grown stronger through all of your ups and downs with your family. Having a strong partner who can grow with you and can handle the worst of times with the good is so very wonderful.
