May 16th my husband and I have been together 5 years. Sometimes it doesn't seem that long and sometimes it feels like we've been together longer. We sometimes talk about all of our up's and downs. How we were so selfish and immature at times. We've come a long ways and it feels good to say we made it. Funny how you look back and sometimes laugh at the things you've done. You find yourself thinking "what was I thinking?"

We've gone through a lot in the past 5 years. My husband separated from his ex prior to our relationship. So we've gone through a divorce together, a custody battle over his son together, the relinquishment of rights for his son together, separations and reconciliations between each-other, infidelity between each-other on both parts, a near divorce between each-other and a lot more.

We've had our bad times that's a fact. But in hindsight our good times have buried the bad ones. These bad things have turned into a good thing. I don't think there is anything that could separate us now. I'm blessed with an un-conditional love. With the help of God we have pulled ourselves out of all our past together and made our marriage work. There isn't a day that goes bad that I regret our past. I've learned it's made us who we are today and without the past it wouldn't have left room for change and growth.

This man that God has blessed me with is truly my soul mate and I can't imagine what I would do without him. We know each-other inside and out. There are just some things and levels people will never understand about you like your spouse. I love waking up to him everyday, talking to him every chance he gets during the day and most of all how I have a friend for life who I can always count on. 

I just wanted to say if your having a hard time don't give up. Fight for your marriage. If you don't that might be the one thing in life you regret! It's possible to make anything work. So here's to me and my hubby and another 5 years!

Yay! How about another 30 years? lol I'm so glad you guys are both happy. God works wonders in marriage. I think so many people are quick to divorce now-a-days. If their spouse so much as looks at them wrong, they file. It's ridiculous. I am a firm believer in one life-time marriage. Of course there are exceptions...but as for me and my's forever. Happy Belated Anniversary!!

(P.S. ours is one day later on the 17th, yay for May!)
