We made it through that crisis growing stronger if not more determined to make our little family survive. The pregnancy was difficult and my husband was amazing through those months.
Two years after Mitchell was born we tried to have another child to our dismay we did not get pregnant right away. This was a difficult time in our marriage. I focused so intensely on having another baby I forgot about the blessings of a wonderful husband and son. Eventually, we had Jonah,who is a delight.
Jonah our second blessing!Following quickly on the heels of that pregnancy, I had Paige. God's timing is always perfect.
Our little princess!
Jerry and I have worked diligently on our marriage for the past seven years. We joined a Marriage Enrichment Group that meets once a month to work on keeping the marriage healthy through Biblical practices. When Jerry and I first married, we did not attend church even though we had most of our young lives and did not get back into the church until our first-born was three. Like others, we got back into to church because of our children. I believe that our marriage may not have lasted if we had not turned to God for the strength to work when times were hard.
Jerry is my best friend. If I have a bad day or a great day he is who I talk to. He has always been my biggest supporter and cheerleader. When I wanted to stay home with the kids he said okay we can make it work. When I said I think I want to write he paid for my conference and made sure I could go securing time off to keep the kids.
So maybe right now I can't stand on the mountaintop and yell "I love you, Jerry" but I am sending it out over the net so more than just the birds on the mountain top will know. I am the most blessed woman. The joys and sorrows we have faced only make us stronger in our love for each other. I pray that God will see us through another 15 years Xs 3.
