- Wedding: July 2012
This day is fast approaching I can hardly believe it’s almost here. I am marrying the most amazing man ever..but 1st let me tell you how this man is my hero..
This however is my 2nd married.. I previously got married at the age of 20(I was so young). I wasn’t in love.. I was in the love with the fact of being married.. I did it all for the wrong reasons..with the wrong person & 2 daughters later and 1 year into my old married I had really realized I wasn’t happy..I stayed for to to long bc I was afraid.. Afraid of taking on the world when not only did I have to fend for myself but for 2 little girls.. My ex used to tell me “nobody will ever want you with 2 kids”.. That was a chance I was willing to take.. So, I turned my back on my past seeking for a brighter, happier future with each one of my little girls in each hand. I lived a year of no hope, broke, jobless, carless on my mother’s sofa.. My ex purposely got fired from his job bc he told me I would never get child support from him so I can live off of him(so selfish).. but I was determined to prove him & everyone else wrong.. Everyone including my family turned they’re backs on me.. I was facing what I feared most.. Taking on the world with NOTHING.. I believe god has directed me into a path like no other.. He tested me & I refused to lose & give up hope. I met my FI through a mutual friend and never expected to be more then what it has become. We started off friends.. then really close friends.. I found him accepting me for me.. Not for what I didn’t have.. We slowly became closer & I started falling more & more in love with this man.. The biggest step for me was him embracing & loving & caring for my girls as if they were his own.. I found myself soon finding a job, buying a car & then soon moving to another county just to be closer to him <3.. We then a few years later we had a baby boy.. Everything fell into place.. This man has seen me at my worst and still accepted me.. & I repay him with so much love, joy, happiness.. all of me.. & I am HAPPY to do so..
So, On Friday while I walk down the aisle.. I will be staring at this man waiting for me to make me his wife with tears of happiness, my heart filled with so much love & joy & the fact that I’m marrying for LOVE.. & not just in love with the word “marriage”..
I’M SO HAPPY!!!!!!!! I will update next week with pictures..
P.S.. Felt so great to prove everyone wrong! 😉
