I love you more than you will ever know. I wonder how you put up with me (from a personality standpoint), and I definitely do not understand how you deal with some of the day to day things that you never thought would be part of our life. I love you.
I cannot stress the importance of this person to me in my life…she is an angel. My wife and I have known each other since we were two years old. We dated in high school and college, and we were married soon after graduation. The primary reason that I give this background information is that I like to point out that she knew what she was getting into regarding my twisted sense of humor. What she didn’t know is what our life would look like in the future…and she hasn’t wavered at anything that has come our way.
When many people talk with me, or ask me about life after my diagnosis, many want to comment on my positive outlook on life. This is based on my faith in God’s Plan. It also comes from the constant, positive cheerleader that I have in my life. I tell people that I get frustrated many times, but I do not see that from her. On June 24, 2014, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. My wife gave me a high five…we finally had an answer. Leading up to that day, the previous two weeks were probably the worst ones in my life (and my constant, irrational mood swings). Brain tumor, cancer, MS, something crazy that I had never heard of??!? All I knew is that I went from being able to run for hours to having trouble walking.
The point of this post is one of thanks…to this woman, this hero of mine…when I speak of everyone having something which calls them to be a warrior…this was one of the main things in my mind. She is one of the bravest warriors that I know. She sees me in the best of times and the worst of times…and her look towards me never changes. For that, I am eternally thankful…
