Coming from such a broken childhood and young adult life I remember when my husband and I got married I was so in love with him and looked past all the brokenness that could come with marriage. So when we were faced with the hardest time our marriage would ever face the very first year I was completely broken. After losing our child and facing reality after her funeral that we were with out her,… I didn’t know how to be mom without a child, a woman in this world again, and a wife to my husband who was grieving too. It was tough. We faced an emotional journey of two souls desperate for healing and two sinners that resulted in times of can we do this together. We cried. We begged. We were mad. We yelled. We didn’t speak. We prayed. God was faithful and though he didn’t move mountains or part the waters when we wanted rather when we needed in his timing. We overcame. We began healing. It took a lot of work and still does. Ten years later we still face challenges, what marriage doesn’t. We choose to stick together and yes we choose to love each other. I have learned a lot and I think the most important thing I have learned in my marriage is to love when I don’t want too but also to be loved. If he makes me mad, hurts my feelings, or just doesn’t even realize I need something, I love anyways. It hurts too bad to become bitter and angry. I did for years after we lost our daughter. So here we are today with two amazing little kids that are growing way to fast and one sweet baby in heaven waiting for us. We love them together. We choose each day to work through anything together. We choose to love and be loved and for that I am grateful for my marriage and I love him more and more each day.
We took the kids to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and The Botanic Gardens. We had so much fun and I am so thankful for the family time we had this weekend.
