I don't know about you, but I have not lived a fairy tale life. Living the way I have, I never expected life to be blessed, full of good experiences or even happy. That was the stuff of movies and Fannie Flagg books. Yet when I look at my life, the only words that could describe it is blessed, full of people that love me and yes, happy. And I owe every bit of that to my husband, Chris Baldus.
My life has completely changed. The lives of my children have completely changed. And it is all because of this one man. He came home just now and was telling me about what happened when he got called back to work tonight. As I was listening to him talk about it, such a sense of pride and love welled up in my heart and overwhelmed me. Words are so inadequate to explain how incredible it is to be loved by a man like that. He's exactly what a man, a father and a husband should be. With everything I have in me, I love him and am completely devoted to our life together. I will write more about our wedding, but right now I am going to warm up his dinner while he takes a shower. Just a good, normal life. What a gift.
