When Ralph talks to people about our relationship, he almost always states, “Well, I guess everybody gets one.” I think some people wonder what that statement actually means, but I know exactly. It’s the true fortune we both feel when we think about finding each other on this earth and how it seems to be a blessing we couldn’t possibly deserve. We’ve had endless conversations about it.
But everybody gets one, right? …and sometimes we even get two!
Just when I think this one pot of gold is enough to sustain me for the rest of my life, I am given yet another blessing to fulfill the final longing in my heart. (In both of our hearts.)
So, if you haven’t figured it out already……
WE ARE EXPECTING!!!!!!
In spite of my life long desire to be a mom, and many years of heartache, I was convinced I was unable to have children. But when I met Ralph, the heartache faded. I mean, how could I possibly ask for anything more than finding him? Imagine the fortune I feel now!
As for Ralph, I’ll let him speak for himself. But I have a few words to say about him in the past 3 months since we found out I was pregnant…
He’s an amazing man that lets me be… happy, sad, annoyed, frustrated, fat, ugly, awkward, sexy, inappropriate, rude, or a complete and total wreck. It must be fun for him to live each day of 2013 so far not knowing what version of his fiance’-and-then-wife he was going to get each day. I, on the other hand, know exactly what I am going to get – a steady, handsome, funny, kind, super hard working, adorable husband.
