My Wonderful Husband, My Best Friend

Hi, my name is Misty. This July my husband Chris and I will be married for 5 years. I know that 5 years is not very long, but we have been through so much together and our love has only grown stronger. We met at church when my aunt introduced us. We didn't date long before we knew that we were meant to be together. We were married and started our journey together just a little over a year after we met.
Before our first anniversary we were pregnant. We made it to 5 months, then I went into labor at 20 weeks. Our 9oz tiny daughter was born still on August 29th, 2007. We named her Lillian Grace. Getting to hold our lifeless baby was bittersweet. Who would have thought this would happen to us. It was so hard on the both of us, but leaning on each other, our family, friends, and most importantly God we made it through. Her graveside funeral was so sad, something we never imagined we would have to do. We cried on each others shoulders and we still do. Everytime her birthday rolls around, or a holiday, or just when we think of what she would look like, or what she would have been like.
In 2008 Chris was laid off from his job for 9 long months which was hard, because even though I work full time, his income was the main one that we depended on. We became closer in that 9 months that he was home. Then God answered our prayers and provided him with a job. We are so thankful for this job, even though we do not see each other much because he drives an hour and a half one way. We see each other less, but I love him more now than I ever have before.
So after 3 years of trying to have a baby, with my hormones going crazy from fertility treatments, we were so excited when we finally became pregnant last year. This time we only made it to 10 weeks before I miscarried in September.
There have been many ups and downs on our path, but they have only made us, our marriage, and our love stronger. He has been my shoulder to cry on, my soft place to fall, and strong arms to hold me when it feels like the world is caving in. When I am in his arms I know that everything is going to be okay. Through many ups and downs we still cling to God first then each other.
I don't know what the future holds for us, but I am so blessed to have him by my side. I love him very much.
