In sickness and in health

Over a year and a half ago I became sick. I will go into detail about that later. In that time I have spent many hours with many different doctors and specialist. In that time my amazing and supportive husband has been right there by my side through it all. Our love has grown so much for each other. Being sick has taught me how to be well. It has taught me to love and appreciate absolutely everything! It has taught me not to sweat the small stuff and that we can not take anything for granted. It has taught me Faith, Hope and Love, with love being the greatest of all.
Anthony has been my caretaker, my husband and the coolest father to my children. (their words) His hand is the last one I hold as I am being wheeled into surgery and the first one I reach for while I am trying to wake up. When I can't cope he dries my eyes he fights my fight, he holds me tight. He won't let me fall. This song says it all... please take a few minutes to listen to it. He is my protector. I feel safe with him. He gets me through each day.

Super blurry picture but see how great he is?

Here we are walking in the Breast Cancer 3-day where he held my hand all 60 miles!

He has given me so much love and the 2 most beautiful children ever. The children that show me joy everyday. He comforts the kids when they are scared because they don't know why mommy is so sick.

Here he is spending quality time with our daughter.
My love for Anthony continues to grow more and more each day that passes and I am so grateful to call him my husband.


  1. A beautiful woman blessed with a beautiful family!
