This is not a post what Amy would do. This is what my husband Dave does. I know people always think they found the perfect mate, and yes they might have. I didn’t realize 42 1/2 years ago, at age sixteen years old, I found my soul mate that would be my rock throughout my whole life. We have been through things in life just like everyone else, our life is no different then what others have gone through. Everybody parents die, it’s the cycle of life. Dave and his brothers lost their mom, 30 yrs ago, but we were still in our 20’s, so my sister in-law Kim and I had to be there for them, and be the strong ones for the boys. I grew up fast at that time, knowing I had to be strong in the time of our grief. When we went through 6 years of infertility, and then adopting our beautiful daughter we became strong again. Everything life throws at you it’s for a purpose. I am now in my late 50’s, and losing my own parents in the last couple of years, has been hard, but you grow from every experience God lays out for you. Life is hard, it isn’t peaches and cream everyday. Let me be honest my cancer diagnosis, shocked us both, this is not at all what we saw in our future, but this is where we are today. My husband is the rock of this relationship now, he is the most loving, SELFLESS man I know, and especially when reality sets in. Almost every other day, he wipes away my tears, and gives me my pep talk and tells me it’s going to be ok. We will throw every arsenal we have in our tool box at this. We don’t know what God has planned for my future, but the most beautiful act of kindness is caring for someone and showing your love. And that’s what Dave does.
