The Need to Remember

Throughout the process and struggle of infertility and grasping at every thread of hope you can, it's easy to lose your self and forget the #1 reason you started this journey.  It's important to remember that you are a couple in love with each other that is so wanting to start a family.  Michael and I got that reminder last week.  We had the opportunity to go on a mini vacation to the beach with friends of ours.  Although we were in a house with other people, we definitely still made time for us to share alone and to just be with each other.  A walk down the beach, a bike ride through the neighborhood, even just walking around the shops.  We left out fur pups in the capable hands of a friend and left the world behind us. 

Another important moment was celebrating our anniversary.  Remembering the hustle and bustle of one of the most important and memorable days of our lives as we came together as a union.  It seems like a lifetime ago that we were married, but in reality, we only have 4 years under our belts.  We've been through hell together and we know that we still have many trials ahead of us.  The one thing that has remained constant is that we are each others strong points.  We are the rocks for each other.  There's not doubt in my mind that I was blessed with a husband that can handle my emotional turmoil through the hard times with such unwavering love and understanding.  He has been the strength I have needed when I thought all was lost.  Last week, vacating our lives, was such a wonderful reminder of the vows that we made to each other and to God to love, honor, and cherish each other.  He is the world to me.  I couldn't imagine a better husband and future father.
