Six years ♥

22636_559938152739_612633_n

On 11/6/2009, when we said for better or for worse, I had no idea.

I mean, I knew but I didn’t really know. It is impossible to know at that time what the worse is going to be. And you're on cloud nine and a little naive so you're almost thinking that the worse might not even happen in your marriage.

Year five was the “for worse” for us in our entire marriage. It was when we realized just how big a role the “for worse” could play in a marriage. We were able to have a pretty smooth ride for four years and then year five decided to truly test us on how we handle stress, sadness, fear, anger, frustration ... you know, all the emotions that we aren’t too proud of having.

But because of year five I know that year six is going to take us even farther in our relationship. I look forward to getting to know my husband more and being the person he can rely on during any stage in our lives.

Although, I knew that I made the right choice marrying Sean years ago, year five reinforced it. I don’t know how many people can handle a person laughing and then crying in mere seconds. I don’t know how many people can handle a grown person having a tantrum. In case you didn't know it is not cute, at all. Sean dealt with that and so much more and with his own mother going through stage 3 colon cancer. He was and is everything one wishes their partner in life to be.

Today as we celebrate six married years together I want to soak in how much we have grown as a couple.
We are definitely not the same people we were six years ago and that's not a bad thing.

A whole lot in our lives have changed, things that I never would have imagined had you told me six years ago. But the one thing that our marriage continues to teach me is that we’re only getting stronger, together.

Babe, here’s to a lifetime together and growing up like us.

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! It is in our most difficult times that we realize those that truly have our backs. This is even more evident in a marriage. The beautiful thing about going through trials and tribulations together is being able to endure them and emerge on the other side that much stronger. Hope you have many more awesome years ahead :)

Faith, that was so touching and so beautifully written! I'm so sorry to hear about all of the hardships you guys went through this past year. Like you said it's only made your love for each other deeper and stronger. I recently read this article about meeting/marrying the right person. The article said something like "marry the person who will help you to the bathroom" and it's along the same lines of what you mentioned in this post. Anyways, happy 6th Anniversary to you and Sean! Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness! <3
