Happy Anniversary!!

This is Steve and I with our sons and grandsons :)

Today is the 15th Anniversary of the Day I was married to Steven D. Hobson.  We had been together almost 7 years when we were married and already had two children together.  On the day of our marriage our household consisted of 2 adults and 5 children, he had 3 children from a previous marriage.  It was not your typical wedding day, by all means.  The house was filled with anger that day, it was an awful day.  There was screaming and yelling and lots of tears.  In fact, my youngest stepdaughter, who was 13, chose not to go to our wedding, so she stayed home alone.  I, in no way wanted to be married that day, it was the last day our marriage license was valid.  Steve and I thought we were doing the right thing by marrying.  We had two children together and were raising the three he had already.  There is no need to go into all the bad that happened prior to this day, so I will tell you the wonderful things that did happen.  When Steve and I first started dating I was a drug addicted, and without him and his kids, I don’t know what would of happened to me.  We also had two beautiful boys together and have raised together.  I have 3 wonderful grandsons, 2 from one of my stepdaughters and 1 from the other.  More than anything, I am so blessed now because my husband and I are great friends.  I can’t imagine ever living with him again but I certainly can’t imagine living without him.  We have set our differences aside, which was not easy, and we have raised our boys together.  We support each other and confide in each other.  I am so blessed by his presence in my life.  My husband Steve is now a Christian man, he is a wonderful father, and a very dear friend.  When my stepdaughter Annie passed away in 2008, it brought us even closer together.  I am so glad we were friends at that time, I can’t imagine how either of us would have made it had we not been.  I guess what I am trying to say is that I love Steve.  I am not in love with him, but I love him with all my heart.  Happy Anniversary Steve.

Happy Anniversary to you and Steve! Sounds like the perfect union of two soul mates. The good and bad doesn't matter, they are but memories. All that really matters is everyone is happy. You have a beautiful looking family. Congratulations to all of you!
