My Husband

I don't talk about him a lot in this blog, mainly because I am normally writing about my feelings and experiences. Not that he isn't a huge part of those, but I don't focus on anything outside of myself. But I needed to take a minute and talk about him. I am not one to brag or try to make someone they are not, and that is not the intention of this post. I wanted to share this so that I don't forget how lucky I am to be on this journey with him.

When T proposed, he had a long speech he gave me, and there are only a few parts of it that I remember clear as day. One thing he said was that he wanted to build a family with me, that is, if we were lucky enough to have children. He actually said that. I remember thinking at the time, that's weird. Of course we will have children. Little did I know what was ahead...

T has always been there for me. Through the crying fits after BFNs, through the analyzing of my symptoms, through the miscarriages, the failed treatments, through it all. This takes a toll on him just like it does on me. But he doesn't let me know that. He stays so strong for us, and always lets me know that no matter what, it's all going to be okay. He's made me dinners, drank wine with me, got me ice cream, brought me flowers and cards, and held me while I've cried... he's done so much to make my days better.

When I got home the day I found out the IUI didn't work, I was a basketcase. I had cried all day on the drop of a dime. I walked in the door to flowers, a card, two bottles of wine (one of which was a very fancy bottle that we got as a Christmas gift- we had been waiting for a special occasion to open it), and dinner started. These are the kinds of things that my husband does. And it makes me thank God every single day that T loves me. If I have to be on this journey, I couldn't even imagine it with anyone else except T. Love you boo.

Things I am thankful for: My husband.

This seriously just made me cry, you are very lucky to have a man stand so strongly by your side and to go out of his way to make you smile. And I'll have to say I'm a little jealous of the Silver Oak in this picture!! You know I had to comment on the wine! Love you guys, I keep y'all in my prayers!
