Josh and I have been through a lot, these past couple years. We have basically been to hell and back, in our relationship. If you would have asked me a year ago, where we would be today, I would have told you separated, or in the middle of a divorce.
Not many people knew how bad things were. Even those people that thought they "knew"...really had no idea. We had grown so far apart...it seemed like there was no way back.
Today, we are so amazed with how different our relationship is. The past has been forgiven. All of the hurtful words and space that was between us...is gone. It's like the old relationship ended and we are beginning a new one. We have each other's best interests at heart and any problems we have now, are quickly diffused.
Our relationship has never been this good and I am so thankful for that. Our lives are quite stressful and knowing that we have each other to fall back on, is such a blessing. We are both so happy and it has definitely trickled down to our children.
Knowing that we have really forgiven each other for past mistakes, removes such a burden from our lives. We have forgiven...but, we will never forget where we were. It will always serve as a reminder of where we never want to be, again.
