Today is my 13th wedding anniversary!
On the one hand I cannot believe it has already been 13 years and on the other, it sometimes feels like we have been married forever.
Some may have giggled at that sentence but it was not meant to be funny, unlike most sentences on this blog. No the reason it feels like our marriage is so old is because it is so solid.
We have had to deal with more things than most couples deal with in their entire relationship and yet we have made it. We have lost loved ones, had children, received degrees, almost ended up on the street, been in car accidents, been in the hospital, watched our child in the hospital, prayed, cried, laughed and celebrated together. And not one ounce of me worries what tomorrow will bring.
There are times we yell. There are also times that we laugh louder then anyone can yell! We are meant to be together. There is not a doubt in my mind.
I sometimes feel like with my disease that there is an added burden for her. My wife is always worrying and taking care of me. I hate that but she doesn't it. She hates my disease but will love me regardless of all the stupid strings that come attached to diabetes.
The team we have created is still being worked on. There are many times we don't see eye to eye but we are both determined to find a way to solve any problem. We are committed to our relationship, our marriage, our children, our family.
I am not the smartest guy in the world but there is one thing that I know without a doubt.
No matter what happens, we will both fight for our marriage.
It is worth it.
