Today marks my one year anniversary with Shaun.
It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed by. It's been the hardest year but also the most amazing year. We have endured an incredible challenge, and grown from it. You can really learn alot about people when they are put in hard times. Shaun has stepped up to the task and taken care of me through the best and the worst. I would not be here without him.
For a long while he was literally, doing everything. He would vacuum and scrub the floors, do the dishes, clean the toilets, wash the laundry, dust the shelves.... He would also wash my hair, scrub my back, change my dressing, cook my meals, get me my slippers, fluff my pillows. He would drive me anywhere I wanted to go and get me anything that I needed. What kind of man has done all that for his wife in their first year of marriage? You'd think I would have scared him away. Nope. Not Shaun. He says he would do it all again.
Now that's a real man.
In one year we have shared many laughs and many tears. The deepest tears and the loudest laughs. We have grown individually and as a couple.
There is nothing I resent or hate about this experience. It is a part of who I am, who Shaun is and who we are together. It's been hard, but I always say....
"It is in our weakest moments we find our true strength."
Shaun, you are everything to me. You are more than everything. You are my strength, my courage and my hope. My love for you is so deep, that I will never find the bottom. Thank you for your love and for being you.
