That was 3 miscarriages, 2 job loses, 1 child with our stubborn temperment, 11 months of post baby anxiety, 1 year of cosleeping, several crazy family members, 1 mother in law who went through tragedy, several friends lost, at least 2 financial crisis' and a dozen financial setbacks, and a huge cut in real life expectations ago.
It was also 1 beautiful daughter, a few friends drawn closer, jobs you like that have bad hours and jobs that let me be home with the baby more, gifts from god, forgiveness, learning that less is more, self sacrifice, and new limits to love growth we thought we'd never see.
And we're both still in till death do us part. We really never fight. We eat dinner as a family every night. I've grown to be comforted by the sound of you sleeping next to me. And I love you more strongly now that I did before.
Happy anniversary Jon!
