I first met A 7 years back when I was grieving for the loss of my firstborn, Kythe. I wasn't visiting the cemetery much then as it was very painful for me. He volunteered to take me to visit until I'm able to visit on my own. He wouldn't say much. He's just there to keep me company
Fast forward, we married after more than 4 years of going out. It wasn't smooth-sailing, but we just go through the hurdles together.This year was even more challenging when we started the year with a miscarriage (our firstborn supposedly) and I had to undergo chemo. A would visit me at the hospital after work. I could see how physically tired he is. And I know he wanted to spend some more time with me there, but I had to send him home to keep Snuz company. Last month, I had to go through with the loss of my dad. For a known Daddy's girl, that is a big loss. And again, no words of wisdom from A... he just kept me company. I guess it's all I needed.All isn't bad for us this year. We do have our high moments as well. I finally made it to my dream firm and loving my stay there. A finally got his career break. Best of all is that we were finally able to join a family affair of his (which he hasn't been in since we got married). I guess he's getting his reward for bearing with me all these years.A's a time-tested, for better or for worse partner. I'm so thankful that God gave me a break when he gave me A.
