It's been a year since J and I had started our friendship. I really didn't expect it to ever go as far as it has (marriage?! having a baby?!) but it has & I am happier than I have ever been. So I guess I could say our friendship started a little over a year ago and it became something more with time.
It started out that he had heard I had been struggling and had been hurt by 2 people that I cared about deeply. My world was falling apart and he was there to pick up the pieces. He, in all honesty, was the last person that I would ever think to be there when I fell. I was a fed a lot of lies & trying to be a good friend & so in return he and I had our very aggressive spats.
What made me reflect on this is it's not only been a little over a year since we started being friends but the other night we were sleeping and we both came out of our slumber at around 1am and talked amongst other things until 3am. It was just beautiful! We have not done that in months. We have had to transition from being depressed and alone with our children to living under one roof & having many children. It puts a lot of stress on a relationship. But we have never quit and never really wanted to quit! It was so nice to just sit up and talk like we once did and kind of re-kindle that "new love" that was always there but was maybe forgotten because of the stresses of life.
As a lot of you know we have a new baby on the way and we are making room for him & our other children! John has been working his butt off for months now to make a new living room for us so we can make the living room we have now, into 2 bedrooms...Giving us enough space for all of our little brats. But the one thing that he had said the night before last when we were up and talking...Was that he wants to paint and carpet the room and not allow me to go in until it's finished..So I can see what he has done because he has been trying so hard to impress me. If you could see what this attached garage looked like and what it has been transformed in to you would understand why I am SO proud of what he has accomplished thus far! Not to mention a year later he is still trying to impress me. I have a feeling years on that he will still try to impress me. That is why I am glad through everything we have both been through we have found our true love. No one can break us down with any comments that they say about myself or him & no one can tear us apart no matter how hard they may try.
