For better or for worse…

Those were the words that passed my husband and my lips almost 27 years ago. As a mere 20 something young women I really had no idea what I was saying other then repeating the words that I was asked to repeat as I am sure Kenny would tell you the same. As usual I think he was much more nervous about this  change and what it would entail in his life, me not so much, just loved the idea of being with him ever single second and loved planning our wedding.

However over the course of the last 27 years if I had known then what I know now about my life would I have repeated those words? Um…. Probably, but let’s just say it is much better that we didn’t know because I’m not so sure we could have handled it… it has been a LOT, actually a lot would be an understatement.

Let’s just say that over the last few years I have come to believe that there is a “greater plan” for each of us, even if we don’t understand the chaos in “the moment” of a life crisis. I do believe that the man upstairs has our “story” written before we are born and we are here to see his plan through. There have been so many things in my life that some might say were serendipitous to getting me through to the next chapter.

As many of you who follow me know this chapter has been one of uncertainty which has caused a lot of panic and anxiety. Many times in life we don’t know what is going to happen however we hope that things don’t go crazy or awry all at once.

And unfortunately that is where my husband and I are at this moment. But we are here together, making decisions that are life altering, career altering, financially huge issues but hopefully they will be good for us “together” in the long run honoring those words we took almost 27 years ago… for better or worse, for richer or poorer,  in sickness and in health..
