January Friend #7 Robby

I picked my hubby for today's friend.

Robby
This man is not perfect. But he's perfect for me. He's made mistakes. So have I.

We've been together (dating) since March 11, 2000 and married since August 11, 2001. In that time we've grown up a lot. We have had some extremely wonderful times and then we've had times that would try a saint.

We've lost love ones, had two babies, lost jobs, had injuries...all of it together. We've cried many tears but at the same time had many laughs.

Looking back sure I'd do some things differently. Maybe I wouldn't say something in the heat of anger. But basically if I changed anything drastically I wouldn't be where I am now in my marriage. I've learned a lot over the past 11 years. Marriage is very tough. It's not that fairy tale you see on tv. It's work. But it's wonderful. I go to sleep every night with my arms around the one I love...and in the morning I wake to that person. I know that no matter how hard things get I have someone who loves me for who I am. I want to grow old with him. I want to be able to spoil grand-babies and then send them home....and laugh with him afterward how irritated our kids are going to be at us. :) I love him with all my heart and he is truly the best friend I have.
