My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate our 12th aniv. (Oct. 25th). We are best friends and soul mates. When I was about 15 yrs old I found out that I had pre-cancerous cell forming on my uterus, I was then told that I might not ever be able to have children, and that if I did get pregnant that I would have a hard time, especially with delevering the baby.... I was in a previous relationship on and off for about 4 yrs, before my husband and I started hanging out, dating, and then marring. In my previous relationship, we never used protection and I never got pregnant.. After that relationship ended, my husband and I started hanging out and dating.. we were together for about ten months, when his yougner brothers girlfriend wanted me to go to the clinic with her (she was getting a pregnancy test taking), all my life my periods have been very irregular, so when I hadn't started I didn't think anything of it, but on this particular missed period my breast were very tender, so I also took a test.... and found out I was PREGNANT! I was excited, but worried about his reaction... but, that soon evaporated as I walked out into the waiting area, the minute he saw me a smile spread acrossed his face and he said "You're pregnant, right!"... he was just as happy as I was, that is when I believed that we were meant to be together, that it was Gods way of letting me know this was the one(I already thought he was a keeper!)... we now have two beautiful children. He has always supported me, while I was going to college, he was taking care of our kids and home... at the time our kids (who are only 13 months apart) were 3 and 4 yrs old... he would take care of the kids, have most of the chores done and almost always had dinner on the table when I gothome, and when I needed quite time to get my shcool work done, he would take the kids to the park or to visit family. My husband isn't one of those really romantic types, but he always suprises me... one night he came home from work with a card and a dozen peach roses (my favorite rose!) when I asked him what they were for he said "Just because, I wanted to let you know I love and appriciate you." He has done little things like that through out the years, and it is always when I least expecte it... a card or little trinkets here and there... he is an amazing husband and father and because of this our children are very close to both of us. The kids are older now.. 10 and 11... both are in sports, our son plays football (and practices are his and dads time together... he always wants his dad to go and help out.) Our daughter still (even now, going through puberty and preteen stuff) is a daddy's girl, her and daddy like to pick on and joke around with each other all the time! We do alot of things together as a family, from camping, to just taking walks together around town... my husband always takes the time to have one-on-one time with each of the kids... we take turns doing stuff with the kids, he will spend time with our daughter while I spend time with our son, and back and forth... even if it is just spending time with each of them in different rooms of the house, helping out with cooking in the kitchen, or playing a game in the living room.... He is my rock, I can always count on him. He knows how to make me laugh, even when I don't want to! We hardly ever fight, and when we do we can never stay mad at the other for very long... we really do complete each other. I am very lucky to have him in my life... and I let him know it everyday. I am so greatful to be able to count him as one of my many blessings!
