Brought to you VIA Cheerio Butt:

This weeks peek at me weekly is Secrets... A secret no one would guess about you , in fact

It has taken me allll week to decide if I should do this weeks Peek. The reason? My family and friends all read this blog. Its not just abstract people online, It will be read by people I see and talk to on a daily basis. Deep breath , Im gonna do it.

My secret is really more a Thank You. A BIG Thank You. HUGE.
Thank you to D****n , who said My husband and I would not see our fifth wedding anniversary.

Thank you to the people who gave "the look" you know the one I am talking about, when I said, Yea Im gonna marry the boy who knocked me up, Deal with it!

Thank you to my Dad, who said while we waited in the little room off the Shrine for my turn to walk that isle"You don't have to do this. We can deal withthe baby ourselves" Such support! but at the same time, you didn't believe in this marriage either! I wonder... do you now?

Thanks to all the people who looked at my huge tummy rolling with baby kicks with distain.

Thank you to the lady in the womans washroom who said to me "I bet you don't even know the babys father!"

Thank you to my sister who accused my soon to be husband for ruining my life.

Thank you to every one who didn't believe in us.

You guys are the reason we are together now. A little over two months to our seventh Wedding Anniversary.

Our first year of Marriage was HARD. Living with very religious In-laws who didn't understand me, nor I them. Living with a baby whom I tried to breastfeed and failed. It was hard. There were times I wanted to (and times I did) throw my ring at the Hubster, and wanted to call it quits.

You know what stopped me? You guys. I pictured each and everyone of you , and it gave me strength . Strength to calm down , and to try to understand what was really happening. Number one, Don't live with family! Your lack of faith in our relationship gave me the strength to get through that first year.

And now? Life isn't perfect. We still fight. But he still makes me laugh more then anyone I know. He still has the power to make me cry when I see him with my boys. He is still the love of my life, So thank you ....

We got a little of that, too, when we got married, because I'm 13 years older than Spouse Guy, had a teenage daughter at the time, etc. Not a lot was said, but the skepticism was there all the same. Most of our family (both sides) have changed their tune since then.

Some people just don't know a good thing when they see it! Congrats on your upcoming anniversary!

What a very rude thing for someone to say to you in the washroom, I would have kicked that womans ass.
