My life is a testimony, the enemy has aimed for my life several times, but God has always pulled me out of darkness. No matter how many times I'm struck down, I rise again. Then God blessed me with the most amazing life mate. My husband is really one that defies the norm, I truly believe I'm the luckiest girl alive. This man loved me as a size 10 and also as a size 18 when I blew up in pregnancy, he never made me feel anything less than beautiful. At the end of all that pregnancy weight and hormones I lost my baby at birth and this man has cried with me, prayed with me and prays for me. He ached as I ached. When I told him I can't go thru it all again he told me children or no children it's me he married and me he loves. He fightes my battles and fights for us. He is a hardworker and a provider. I can't think of him and not be overwhelmed with intense love. He is not perfect but he tries he damn hardest. He always ask me what he can do to make me happy. Even when he is angry with me he doesn't hold a grudge. Maybe God has seen the ups and downs of my life and sent me his best because he is definitely my best. My Oyeyemi definitely defiles the norm. I love him to the moon and back.
The poster put this up as a comment but I had to make it a post. I'm not one of those that read a comment or post and says this brought tears to my eyes, but this literally brought tears to my eyes. Dear poster I am so happy for you. We need to hear more stories like this (yours and Tolulope Alabi's) to rebuild our faith in love and marriage. With all the negative stories we hear these days it's so easy for one to accept that there can be no good in marriage. I thank you for sending this in. May God continue to bless you and your home.
Ps. I'm not doing this for just myself. I've got some single friends who already believe their marriages to be doomed and it's mainly as a result of the stories they read on blogs and stories they hear. There's one who starts most of her sentences with "I know my husband will cheat so...." Or "I know my marriage won't last so I'm just going to have my two kids and leave". I keep begging her to stop prophesying negatively.
We really need these positive stories to rebuild our faith and hope in the institution of marriage.
