18 Years and Counting!

It's a few days early, but since I don't post on weekends I wanted to make sure I got this one out!

18 years ago I was getting ready to walk down the aisle to marry the love of my life.  The entire bridal party was lined up on the stairs waiting to make their entrance.  I could hear the music playing and I remember sitting in my chair rocking back and forth wondering just what in the hell I had gotten myself into.  I was young, stupid, scared and in love.  I wondered what the future would hold for us.  What kind of apartment would we live in?  Would we make friends quickly when we got to our new duty station?  What would our children look like?  As I made my way up the stairs and saw that smile on G’s face I knew that no matter what the future held I was going to be with a man who loved me more than I could ever imagine.  In that moment it didn’t matter what was coming our way because we were together and together we could get through anything.

Our “fairytale” began on December 22, 1994 and I use the word “fairytale” loosely.  Our marriage has had its fair share of trials and heartaches and to be honest there were times that I was sure we weren’t going to make it.  G has always had hope and faith when it came to our marriage surviving.  It took a lot of hard work, dedication and prayer to get us to a healthy relationship.  We have been able to persevere through everything that has come our way and infertility is no different. 

G has continued to have hope even when mine was failing.  He has never lost faith when it comes to us becoming parents which makes this anniversary a little bitter sweet.  I can’t believe that another year has come and gone without us having a baby or at least be expecting one.  This year has been especially hard for me because there were two times that we thought our time had come only to have it quickly and painfully taken away.  G is my rock, my strength and my motivation.  Marrying him is the best thing that I have ever done in my life! I thank God every day for allowing us to find each other at an early age and giving us the strength to survive our battles.  Like everything else in our life we will survive infertility…together! 

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life and thanks for all the “betters” you have given me in our marriage!
