Tomorrow will be 8 years that I have been married to my wonderful husband. I never thought that our lives would be were we are at 8 years ago. I always thought we would have at least two running around this house driving us insane. My mom for wedding gift had given us a framed poem she had written and the words are so true about life. It's like she was giving us guidance and telling us that at times it will get hard. How the paths will get bumpy, will get muddy with tears but you find a way to keep going. I think about this today because she gave us a lot of wisdom in those words. We got married and just thought life was going to go in the way we had it planned. Marriage, enjoy marriage for a bit, have kids, so on and so on. Life doesn't go as you plan it but here we are 8 years later still enjoying being married to each other.
I remember everything as a clear as day our last normal day before I went into the hospital but I remember telling my mom things are too good. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop...How that shoe did drop.
So in 8 years, we have two children one living, one an angel, and one puppy arriving in a week. Now I just need the gov't to open back up so I can go on my date night to the melting pot with my husband!
But I do know that I am in a better place thanks to the shareunion. I have our family photo from the remembrance ceremony displayed in our living room and I am hanging our wedding photo in a frame that has the frames dangling beneath and in those frames will hold baby pics of both my boys. That's a big step for me.
I'm just happy that I have such a wonderful, supporting guy walking alongside me through life.
first of all happy anniversary...it is bittersweet to see where we are and think about where we thought we would be by now.. i always took having children for granted like it was a guarantee.. i thought we would get married take six months to get used to being married then have a child..yea not so much, but in the long run we are one of the strongest couples i know. glad you were able to take that step to hang that family picture up in your house.. for me we have skylar everywhere, but at times it gets hard to see all the reminders of what we should have ahd.
many hugs nikki
Happy anniversary! The pictures sound beautiful, I am glad you were able to take that step. I hope you will post some pictures of the puppy when it arrives!
Happy Anniversary. For Jer and I each year since our loss has become even more cause for celebration. Marriage has become easier yet harder at the same time. We became new people and still fell in love all over again. Each anniversary is a gift and I am happy that even though this is not the life you imagined you are living it with the man of your dreams. Lots of Hugs and can't wait to see the new puppy!
Happy anniversary to you and your husband! It is hard not to think about the way we wanted or thought life would all work out for us on our wedding anniversaries. On our wedding days, there was so much hope - hope to have the life you wanted. Never did we think our lives would be shattered...left for us to pick up the pieces.
You are never alone on this journey. We are with you. I am glad you are hanging up your pictures. I'm sure they will all look beautiful hung up.
Fingers crossed that the shut down ends soon, for many reasons, one of which so you and your hubby can go on your date! Melting Pot sounds delicious!! :)
