Today is our 5 year anniversary. I know maybe that doesn't seem like a lot but to us it feels like a lifetime.
We met in college. He was known as the "weird one" but I saw someone different. I saw one of the kindest, gentlest men I've ever met. I knew instantly we would get married, he took a little convincing but even in our first year of dating we went through more than I could have ever imagined. He was there holding me when both of my uncle's passed away and all I wanted to do was go with them. We were together when his grandma got sick and passed away on his birthday.
In the last year or two things really started falling apart with us, the stress of having two babies, the depression and fights and the other unmentionable issues we had really started trying to tear us apart. I see now through everything, God was holding us together even when we just wanted to go our own way. He was trying to speak to us, but neither of us were listening.
