We Have Each Other
Dedicated to My Husband Ed
Submitted by Katleen
As I read the many stories of endless love, my eyes fill with tears.
There is true love out there. Underneath all the sadness and pain there is love.
My husband and I will be married 25years, June 12th of 2001. The night we were wed, we left on a car trip to Calif. from Mass. My new husband was in the army. He was to report to a base in Calif., A.S.A.P. There was not time for a honeymoon. No money for trips to Hawaii. Two wonderful sons and years later, there is still no time for a honeymoon! No money for trips to Hawaii.
We too have had more than our share of pain and disappointments. Last year alone we buried my dad and my father-in-law. No one wants to read about our pain, they have their own, and I know God never puts more on our plate than we can handle.
I've never won anything in my life, and am pretty sure this will also not be a win for me either. I'm writing this letter, because I'm feeling sorry for myself. I know my sons work hard and could not afford anything real big for our 25th anniversary. My family is not close on my side. Or my husband so there is no big celebration coming from them. A quite evening out would be great, but the 12th is a work night.
I live across from the church we were married in. But the sadist thing is 25 years ago we stood before God and our family and friend, declaring our love for each other, and then lived one lie after another. I always doubted our love. I felt. I couldn't be loved. My husband also felt he should not be loved. In 1996 all the lies were told and we began to rebuild our lives. Today we are still rebuilding and together we will have 25 more years. Happier years!
The point of my story:
People are too quick to call it quits, they give up to easily. The best things in life are the things you work the hardest for.
Winning a trip to Hawaii, a honeymoon we never had, would be wonderful. Having a special someone in your life is forever.
