When we married nearly twenty-one years ago, little did we know…
The twists and turns that life would take to bring us to this place: the loss of a job just three months into our marriage, working two, and three, jobs to get by.
By God’s grace, buying our first home around the time of our first anniversary. Which required all kinds of work, but we didn’t care–we had a place, a space, that was ours.
The crushing migraines you were soon to undergo.
Being told we told we couldn’t have kids, grieving this, and being surprised by God not once, but twice.
You almost dying from food allergies.
It hasn’t been easy. We’ve had our ups, and downs. We’ve been close, we’ve been distant. We’ve fought, we’ve made up.
But we’ve always been there, together, through:
And other health challenges
If I could take those things away–without changing us–I would.
I wouldn’t change our life together, that has brought us to this place.
“For richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health…”
I love you, dear.
