And we are celebrating! He gave me 5 golden rings. I don't always wear my ring. ( my hangup) so he said "maybe you'll wear these ". 5 bangles! Mamma likes. But that is besides the point.
I realized I'm on my way to a normal me. I love my husband and he loves me. I'm taking my husband's hand and looking forward. Not back. I am receiving and giving love. I feel hope.

So nice to read this!

And congrats on your wedding anniversary!

I read in your profile about the threads that are knitted together to form your marriage.

That was how a minister described it to me also.

It was our 30th anniversary and I didn't know how to look at it....should I say that this was our first anniversary because we were reconciling after d-day and embarking on a 'new' marriage, or should I subtract the 5 yrs of the LTA and say that we were only married for 25 yrs?
And the minister replied that I should think of our marriage as a quilt with all the experiences good and bad woven through it.
The 5 toxic years were part of our history but the marriage as a whole was so much more.

I now see us and our marriage as survivors.
We held on because underneath it all there really was a strong bond of love.

So glad that you are feeling hopeful.
May 2014 be your year for happiness and peace!
