Two divorces, two and a half kids, one tour and a pandemic yet we are still standing on our wedding anniversary. Seven Years! That is how long it has been today since I married my best friend.
Getting here was not easy.
We were both previously married to narcissistic and abusive people. We had to escape their grasp, fight for divorces and heal from the damage they caused us. In fact, we couldn’t even find his ex for five years and thought we would never be able to get married yet alone have a wedding anniversary.
We went through a tour where I did not have my driver’s license, I had a baby, I was dealing with my ex calling CAS on me for no reason. In fact, CAS threatened to charge him if he called again with false allegations. At the same time, I was getting my high school diploma. It was not an easy seven months but we did it.
We battled my ex and in the end, my husband was granted the gift of adopting our oldest so that he is not just his in his heart but also his in the eyes of the law.
We went through a battle we lost trying to have my husband’s oldest son in our lives. A pain that we will carry with us every day hoping that one day he will be in our lives.
We almost got divorced once. Everything was against us. It was one of our darkest times. That is actually when I had quit blogging before and left social media. We threw all of our attention to our marriage. Totally worth it as four years after that very dark time we are still standing strong and celebrating our wedding anniversary .
We have had short notices to move houses, We have been posted during a pandemic and well today we are still in a pandemic but we are together and celebrating our wedding anniversary .
This is not how we wanted to celebrate our seven-year wedding anniversary , stuck in the home not even able to go out for dinner. But we will make it special in the little moments, just like we do every single day to show our love for one another. It is currently 12:45 am on our wedding anniversary and as I sit here typing this he lies beside me attempting to sleep over my TV and typing noise having already surprised me with a card at 12:01 am.
I would not want to spend my ups and downs of life with anyone else. I could not imagine parenting two children and having them do online learning through a pandemic with anyone else. I can not picture my life with anyone else.
Cheers to seven years and seventy more.
I love you Postal!
You’ve been my guiding light for well over a decade. And you’re still the only light I see. Love you lots and lots.
