It has been said that marriage is hard, yet I have not come across anything in the last 17+ years that even came close to making me question my choice to marry. Being loved so much by such an incredible man is my greatest blessing. Love is so powerful. To give love to someone else can be scary. When I was 19 I met my husband. I was afraid to love and be loved because I knew CF wasn't going to allow me to give my husband the things he deserved. I knew I probably wouldn't be able to have his children and worst I knew I probably won't get to grow old with him. That's a lot to expect another person to want to take on.
I'm so very blessed to have found true love! I'm blessed to have the opportunity to give my love unconditionally. It's not easy sometimes let ourselves be vunerable, I mean we've had to be tough for our families as we battle a terminal illness after all.
The overwhelming sadness at the thought of leaving my true love behind when my journey on this earth is done us unbearable at times...but when we allow ourselves to love & be loved so deeply nothing can come in between that, not even death.
