So by now you all know everything I’ve been through in the past year, but what y’all don’t know is my husband has been absolutely amazing through all of this!
We got married September 23, 2017 & I got sick January 26, 2018 so we only had 5 months of a normal marriage. Crazy right?! But what’s been even crazier is that he’s been right here by my side through everything, & now we have a sweet baby boy on the way!
Here’s proof. I’m trying to relearn to walk again & my husband is in the front guiding the walker. He’s been there literally & figuratively every step of the way & I couldn’t be more thankful because most guys would have split the second I got sick.
Now he tries to get my confidence up every chance he gets. We go on walks every evening before the sun goes down & the other day, he told me to walk up our steep driveway by myself & he was right there behind me cheering me on all the way! “Shift your weight”, “don’t stop you’re almost there”, just saying all the right words. When we go out in public like to the grocery store or something, he doesn’t let me hold onto him for balance, he makes me do it by myself, when I’m not being grumpy which is more often than not now because of the pregnancy 😂
I guess what I’m trying to say is, for all you single girls out there, the right guy is totally worth the wait & I truly believe that my husband & I are living, breathing proof of that. No, as much as I like to think he is, my husband is not perfect. But he was right there on my darkest days & he’s still right there when I need him to be. Things are obviously easier than they were a year ago but not nearly as easy as they were before I got sick, I still have to depend on him a lot but that’s just it. He makes it easier for me KNOWING I can trust him to be there when I need him. & that’s how I know he’s gonna be the best daddy. Because if he can be all of that for me, I can only imagine how he’s gonna be with our son.
Funny story time! Our first date makes me laugh every time I think about it, poor guy 😂 So he picked me up from my dorm room & we were just gonna drive around & talk. Not even like 2 miles from the college, his tire popped. We pulled over because he had a spare tire in the trunk of his car. Well him being the gentleman he is told me to stay in the car while he changed his tire, his car running the whole time. So by the time he finished changing his tire, he got back in the car & his car had died 😂 so we spent our first date walking 2 miles to my dorm room to get jumper cables & my truck 😂😂 & here we are almost 2 years later 😂
So wait. I dated my fair share of jerks in the past but it was all worth it when I met my husband. Wait for your best friend, wait for the guy that you cannot picture your life without. Wait for the guy that can make you laugh with so much ease. It’s worth the wait, I promise.
