State of the Union – #30things Day 3

The State of Our Union (Motherhood Looms)

This was a recent gift from my husband. 11 diamonds: A princess cut in the center, and on the sides are two brilliant cuts with small baguettes on each side. And they’re pressure-mounted. How’s that for symbolism? We’ve been together for ten years now…)

Day 3 of 30 Things My Kids Should know About Me challenge is “Describe your relationship with your spouse.” The best way to do that is to deliver what I affectionately call our State of the Union Address.

The State of the Union is going strong. We’ve weathered storms and had our failures of communication. There were times when I thought our Union may fail. However, we always work through them and find that each trial makes the State of the Union that much stronger.

There’s one very simple reason for that: even when we hit a rough spot, that we love each other never changes. If anything, our loves is constantly growing. He’s my soulmate. He’s the one that I’ll always be with.

Maybe the reason that the State of the Union is so strong is because we complement each other. We have a traditional marriage in a lot of ways: I’m a stay at home mom now, but I was a homemaker for a couple of years before we had Norton. I was a homemaker in the beginning of our relationship due to immigration issues, and that was what has always worked best for us.

In spite of the State of the Union being so traditional in a lot of ways, he’s very much my partner in every way. He’s my co-parent. He’s my friend. He’s the first face I see in the morning and the last face I see at night. In short, he’s all that I could ever ask for. I can only hope that our children find that kind of love for themselves.
