5th Anniversary

Yesterday was my fifth anniversary.  Seems like I’ve been pregnant for half of it 🙂

It got me thinking about when we met.  I knew straight off I would be with him for a long time but what if he hadn’t felt the same?  Where would I be now?  I don’t know if I believe in fate but if one small thing changed, I may never have met the father of my children, I would never have had my children, I’d be a completely different person.  It’s kinda scary thinking about how something small could have changed everything.

He often tells me how he used to be before he met me.  He met up with people he had been talking to online or had gotten in contact with through a wrong number a lot.  He would arrange to meet up with these girls, check them out from the distance and leave if he didn’t like what he saw.  He would text the girl saying something like thanks for being late, I’m not talking to you now and she would never hear from him again.  I know, what a tosser he was back then.

 If he did that to me, I would have been sick, that’s pretty awful.  But say that did happen with us, I dread to think how my life would be now.  I don’t think I would have children.  I’d probably be working and living alone.  I don’t know why he suddenly changed when he met me, maybe he got tired of messing around and wanted something more.  I know that I changed too.  I hated getting close to people before that, I never gave anyone second chances, I didn’t like seeing the same people every single day.   Then I met him and suddenly I was prepared to let him have the last word (sometimes) and we have rarely been apart ever since. 

It sounds strange now I’m saying it but it does seem like it was meant to be.  Right place, right time, right person…Everything has worked out, even the bad things that happened along the way.  I was with him for less than a year when a friend of mine committed suicide.  I didn’t take it well and if it hadn’t been for him, I don’t think I would have gotten through it.  Nobody else knew what to do with me, that’s for sure! 🙂  I’ll stop being sappy now, I’ll just say I’m thankful for fate, destiny, guardian angels, whatever or whoever it was that led us on the same path.

    Not mushy, just sincere, honest and vulnerable. You know, that’s one of the things I like about blogs. It allows the author to show his or her vulnerability which is rarely seen in person.

    It’s refreshing to see a person who enjoys her relationship. So many people struggle with their relationships. I sometimes think readers prefer to read about the rough times rather than the smooth times. But I like to hear about the positive experiences.

    It gives me hope for humanity. I’ve had my own struggles with the world at large, lately. And thankfully the constant in that storm has been my husband. I am glad to read that the majority of the time (cause no one’s perfect) things are going well for you and your hubby, Claire.

    Nice post!

    We’re not married 🙂 But I agree, people do enjoy the horror stories, it’s like having gossip fed to you every day but I like to hear how people get through their hard time and come out through the other side stronger for it.

    Obviously we’ve had problems, trust me, we’ve had plenty, but it’s nice knowing that it will be over soon and we’ll be back to normal. Too many people give up when there is an obstacle. I think it’s quite scary when I read about other people wanting to end things because of a fight. I just think that things are worth working on. My partner is the one person in the world that I rely on, I couldn’t imagine just giving that up. I know it sounds sad but he is my other half. I can honestly say he’s my best friend and even when he annoys me, we both know he can make me smile anytime he wants.
