"5 years ago in November you changed my whole life. You knew I was drowning in grievance of our recent loss and you didn't allow me to drown. It might have seemed easier to let me walk, but to you, that wasn't an option. You got down on one knee and did the traditional proposal. What was not traditional was the surprise wedding that followed immediately after. I couldn't have been more blown away. There was no questioning the event. I was yours for life. You were mine. We wed on the beach with your grandma as our flower girl, your mom, dad and the marriage celebrant. It couldn't have been more romantic. Barefoot in the sand. Waves crashing. We started our journey.
We always intended on doing a Canadian ceremony of sorts, but with struggles with fertility and many personal struggles, it was never the right time.
Today seemed perfect. 5 years married. 5 years braving the storm together. 3 beautiful babies born during that time. A huge move from Australia to Canada. So much has happened. Today was so incredibly important to me. It's not the start of our journey, rather a continuance. You have guided me through so much, at times even carried me, without ever complaining of the extra burden of weight. My rock. My heart. My mate.
I feel like together, we can overcome anything. The sleepless nights, hospital visits, long plane rides.. It's only made us stronger. You have proven to fight for our love. Even when I tried to shut down emotionally, you didn't allow it. I picture the last 5 years like a battle. We survived. It's time to acknowledge the fight we've fought and keep building our love.
Amazing father. Amazing lover. Amazing husband. But most importantly. Amazing mate."
