When you’re young, you have a certain belief about life that you will grow up, get married, have a family and grow old together. You don’t think that it may not turn out that way. I was blessed with a marriage that produced 3 beautiful sons but not the longevity. When that union dissolves, you think never again will I marry or be in love again but you do. At least for me that was true. The old saying goes, when you’re not looking for love it fill find you and it did.
I met my love at a time when it was perfectly aligned for us to meet. He had been married before and had 4 handsome boys. He lived in the same town although we never crossed paths before. I truly believe we were meant to meet at the time we did. We were able to appreciate one another, respect one another and admire each other as a fellow parent and friend. We had so much in common but yet could still show each other something new. We knew we would marry and we did. We blended our families and also welcomed a baby girl into the world.
Let me just say it’s not easy! Marriage the second time around especially with kids is not always bliss but it’s wonderful! I know that I have a partner for life, a best friend and the best father for our kids. When we married 8 years ago, I took those vows seriously and knew they would be the last time I said them. I will grow old with him and have grandkids with him. We will never be apart for too long and we will help each other grow spiritually and emotionally. We will always put each other first and show each other appreciation. At the end of the day, he’s the one I want to see before I close my eyes and when I wake up.
Thank you to my husband Marc for showing me love can happen for the second time and make it feel like the first! You give me life, laughter, comfort, protection and peace. You are my King and Best Friend.
