My Forever Story

In Parenting by Jen

My forever story began 16 years ago. I was one month past my 21st birthday. A baby some called me, too young to be taking this step others thought.

Jensguy although older than me, had just recently turned 24. We were both so young.

I can still remember the morning of our wedding when he took my hand and whispered in my ear how lucky he was to be marrying the most beautiful woman ever. Sixteen years later he still tells me this same thing almost daily, even on days when I feel that the grime of daily living has covered that beauty.

There have been times over the past 16 years that we have each had to be the strength the other needed in order to keep moving forward.We have cried, we have laughed, and we have loved.

Our once family of 2 has grown.

My oldest daughter, now almost a teen, has begun to ask what made me want to marry Daddy.I have told her that although young, we both knew that forever wasn’t  a promise to be made lightly. We knew that sometimes storms would rage and light would shine, but that no matter what, at the end of each day we would remain standing side by side. This is the kind of love I want her to find.

“Perfect love is perfectly patient.”- Neal A. Maxwell

My forever story isn’t perfect, but it’s mine and luckily we have forever to make it perfect.

Stay Happy! Stay Informed!
