In Sickness And In Health

This post has been in my drafts for a while. Three years ago today I had surgery after tearing my ACL/MCL/LCL in my left knee. I wrote a little bit during the recovery process (because what else was there to do besides watch TONS of TV?) but never really posted anything (apart from this pity party post).

So today on the third anniversary of my, albiet common and minor surgery, I am going to post about how amazing it is to have a great partner and what it taught me about my marriage (yes, really). I really can't believe it has been that long since the experience...
Of course, I already knew I had a wonderful husband, but we made vows in sickness and in health and during the whole process, Kevin was supportive, encouraging, wise, and kind. I had never experienced the feeling of not being able to do things on my own, but I was able to be completely reliant on him. He had to be exhausted and stressed, but he never complained. He continued to serve me essentially without expecting anything in return. Therefore I realized, that marriage is not always 50/50. Even with things smaller than surgery one partner may give, be, and help more. That is okay. Just as long was we both give 100 percent of love and devotion to each other.

So today is not our anniversary or a significant day to remember in our relationship per se, but it will be forever be a day I am reminded of how much I have learned and love in my marriage.
