So, Aaron and I just celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. Boy what a 19 years it's been. So many ups and so many downs. These past couple months have been especially trying. Aaron's still not working...if it were not for our family we would be living on the streets. I sometimes feel so jealous of those who seem to have so much. A nice home, nice furniture. Those who don't have to shop at the thrift stores or feel guilty buying things like facial moisturizer or to pay to get their hair done. But I have to think of how this trial has helped our family. We have become close. Aaron and Zack actually have conversations where before their relationship has been so strained. Aaron and I are getting along so well....we have so much time together now. He makes dinners for our family almost every night. He gets the kids ready for bed and gets them up in the morning and ready for school and out the door. We still have moments of struggle with getting along and not fighting....but for all this trial has brought us, it's ultimately brought us closer.
