Time has flown by, but I can honestly say that our relationship has grown stronger everyday. I know that sounds cliche, but it’s really true. We’ve been through many situations that would tear many couples apart, but somehow, through it all, we’ve found a way to strengthen our bond.There is not another man I could possibly spend my life with. He makes me laugh, smile, treats me wonderfully, and deals with my moodiness. He is a great father, great friend, and would do anything for those he loves. His heart is bigger then he realizes and he touches peoples lives in many ways without realizing he’s doing it. His patience and understanding are amazing even in the hardest moments. During the tough times, he steps up and takes control. In fact, he’s stepped up majorly this past month, he’s been mister mom for the past 11 weeks and it’s helped get us through this tumultuous period in our lives.

For many dads this would be difficult, but because we homeschool, this involved being with the kiddos 24-7, juggling activities, lunches, dinners and more. Not all dads could do this, and while I know it was very stressful and hard for him, he never complained. He just did what needed to be done and tried to make the best of it.

I have to say I think I married the best one of the bunch… For my husband, I am forever grateful!
