I have been reflecting on my life recently and I started to ask myself who has had the greatest impact on my life thus far. I believe the answer to be my husband. From the day we first met, he has supported my every dream and my every whim. I must say this has been a difficult job, because I tend to have a lot of whims :-)
For a while, I decided I wanted to be a massage therapist. He went out and surprised me with a massage table before I started school so I would be prepared. This was a great gesture because it showed he believed in me unconditionally.
We are now struggling with infertility. He has been wonderful doing anything I have asked of him to get pregnant. He's taken a million vitamins, undergone surgery, and had a ton of doctor appointments, all in the hopes of being able to have a child together. He's never complained and always states he just wants me to be happy.
I have never really experienced unconditional support and love. My life before my husband was filled with pain and sadness. He has taken a beaten down woman and made her feel amazing inside. He has helped me see that I am worthwhile and that I deserve to be happy. I still struggle with low self-esteem, but with his love and support, I feel better every single day. I am truly blessed to be married to such an amazing man!
Your turn.... who has had the most impact on your life and why?
