After a two month hiatus – JENNY AND I ARE BACK! Sorry kids, life got in the way for awhile and other things took priority, but don’t worry, we never stopped thinking about you.
So why am I writing today of all days?
I just read an absolutely fabulous article on Babble.com titled, “Why I Don’t Love My Children More Than My Husband“. At 25 weeks pregnant I find myself thinking more and more about what kind of parents we will be and all the new – yet very exciting – challenges we will be facing. But one thing I have never questioned is that I know my husband will always come first. He has to. And I have to come first for him.
Our relationship is the foundation of this family we are building. If we aren’t strong, the family won’t be strong. As selfish as it sounds, we must make each other a priority. Whatever that takes at the time – maybe sometimes ten minutes alone is all it will be, maybe it will be a date night, maybe there will be times when we need an actual vacation (sans munchkin-to-be).
And like the article, hubby and I have been at rock bottom. But hitting rock bottom and working our way back up made us stronger. We love each other more today than the day before and the day before that… Everyday we choose one another. We choose to trust in one another, to confide in one another, to support one another. I am his biggest cheerleader and he is mine.
As much as I don’t doubt that he must always come first, I also don’t doubt that we have the biggest challenge of our lives ahead of us in raising this little one – but no matter the challenge, we have one another. That is all that matters. Together we can make it through anything.
