Wow, it’s been 3 years already. Time really does fly when you’re having fun, or fighting, or struggling, or just trying to make it day to day.
I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. It was a Monday, and honestly who gets married on a Monday? And for that matter, it is National “Star Wars Day”, so again I ask, who gets married on a Monday or National Star Wars Day? That would be my husband and me of course. We’ve never done anything traditionally so why should something as miniscule as a wedding be traditional either? Add to the “out of the norm” equation and you’d have our wedding party. It consisted of the pastor who used to be my neighbor and lived directly across the street from my ex husband, my ex mother in law and ex sister in law (who love me more then they do him) and my kids. Yup, we are a strange bunch.
My how things have changed in 3 years. We both look different for starters. I’ve lost a great deal of weight. He’s retired from the Air Force and has let his hair grow out and a goatee, which I find sexy as hell and, we moved my kids and I 1500 miles away from Texas to Virginia, talk about a culture shock there!
Our road has been through lots of hard times and speed bumps. We never got a chance to try to blend in as a new family before issue’s from previous families burst into our lives making it damn near impossible. But, one thing that has remained constant is the fact that we are in love, and nothing either of the ex’s does is going to destroy that fact. They can try, and oh trust me they have and continue to try, but it’s not going to work. We will continue to walk this road together, hand in hand, heart to heart.
So today I’m going to say “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY” my love. Thank you for making my life so much better in so many ways. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and making me feel so special. Thank you for helping me learn to love myself and heal the scars of the past. I only hope I can give you back the love you give me and make you feel like the most important person on the Earth. I love you Robert.
