How I Met Your Father

Continued from part 16…

It’s amazing how quickly things can change that leave your life turned upside down and inside out! This next instalment was supposed to feature our glorious honeymoon to Thailand which also happened to be Gary’s first overseas trip (I was super excited to have been able to spoil him). That post would then have been followed by a look back on our first year of marriage, and then our second. It would have featured our adventure in making our new house a home and filling it with a child or two… All the things that were to be but will now never happen…

The biggest thing to have come to terms with is how much things have changed. I lost a friend, someone who I loved unconditionally and shared every piece of myself with. I moved out of the house that promised to bring so many hopes and dreams to fruition. I said goodbye to the doglets that added a different dimension to my life. Through all these losses I also had to conquer a million other hiccups that life dealt me – health issues, drivers license problems, new jobs, a stolen car, finding a place to stay…

When I look back over the last 10 months I see all the obstacles I have managed to overcome. I was forced to find strength through these adversities and am definitely not the same person I was. I’m not sure what the future holds or whether I will get to have a happily ever after. For now all I know for sure is that things are “to be continued…”

The story continues here

  2. Agree with Shaz, you are too special to pass up. And look how amazingly strong you are. Not fun during the experience. But looking back you can be amazed by yourself and your strength. Huge hugs xx
