Wedding anniversaries have always been bitter sweet for me. It was shortly after we got married that we started trying for a little one and each year the 25th February came and went without a bump or a baby in sight. Each year I was reminded just how lucky I was to have Bob by my side but also that another year of trying had come and gone without success. I haven’t been able to go back to the venue since because I knew it would upset me too much, knowing what should have been. It’s heartbreaking that TTC mars so much in our lives that should have been so good.
This year though, for the first time, we have our gorgeous Wren with us. She celebrated with us this morning as we opened cards and it was just wonderful. But I still feel a little sad. I guess 7 years of pain takes a while to get over. Very aptly @asyliawrites words ‘Be patient with your wounds, they are still healing’ came up in stories this morning, like it was written for me.
I know how lucky I am though. Bob is the most wonderful, kind, sensitive, supportive, thoughtful, generous and fun man I could ever ask for. He lifts me up and laughs with me, he hugs me and lets me cry. He is always there for me and, now, he has given me the greatest gift (bar him) that I could ask for. This year for the first time we are going back to the venue and I’m excited to show Wren where this picture was taken. It was such a fun, chilled and sunny February day and I couldn’t have asked for more.
Thank you Bob, you are my everything. I love you more now then I did then. I love you forever.
