"Love will hold us together" - "This is the first day of the rest of your life..."
Today is actually CD2. Yesterday we were visiting my parents and travelling, so no time to post.
I kind of knew this cycle was a bust before it began. We had a guest staying during the peak time of my cycle, sleeping on the couch right outside our bedroom. That’s probably enough explanation!
Today is also our 2nd anniversary. I feel surprisingly peaceful, considering the disappointment of feeling cramps on our anniversary when I’d rather feel elation at telling my husband, “Happy anniversary…you’re a dad!” Maybe next year?
To celebrate, we’re making a nice steak dinner tonight, and opening a bottle of wine. I told him last night, “If I can’t have a baby on my anniversary, you better believe I’m having wine!!” We're going to watch our wedding DVD. I'll probably cry, as I always do.
I guess the 2nd anniversary traditional gift is cotton, or so my mom says. She was so generous and bought us fabric to make matching pillows for our living room couches. (She’s sewing them too!)
Thinking about CD1 yesterday, the thought came into my mind: “I guess Jesus isn’t done teaching us what we need to learn in this valley of tears.” That was comforting.
Today I am determined to celebrate our anniversary and not lament our childlessness! Child or not, I still love Mr. M with all my heart. I am so grateful to be his wife and get to see him up close and personal day in and day out. I rejoice in the gift of him today!
