>we are family

11:24 AM


It's about a year now since David and I married and it's been about two years since we first got together. It still continues to amaze me how well we get along with each other. Our days are peaceful; filled with affection, respect, and trust. That's not to say we don't bump heads every once in a while (we are human after all) but it's never as furious or as long lasting as the fights I've had with other people.

A year ago when I said "I do" I was afraid. I was afraid that things would change between us for the worst. I was afraid that David would become any number of things: controlling, manipulative, unfaithful, abusive, cold. I was afraid that I would drive him to become these things. Past experience had taught me that either all men were like this or I drove them to be this way. I went ahead and took the chance though; partially because I loved him and partially because I realized that in order to be happy in life you have to take those kind of chances. It's one chance I'm glad I took. My fears have turned out to be unfounded. This past year the only way in which things have changed between us has been for the better. Our relationship has become stronger than I ever imagined a relationship could be. I am happier than I ever imagined I would be.

We have a family; not just any family but the kind of family people sit up and take notice of. There isn't a week that passes by without at least one stranger commenting on how happy and/or calm we seem to be together. I am proud of where we stand today.
