My Rock

I’ve spent the last 18 years fo my life with a guy who carries the by line “Mr Magnificent” We’ve been together since we were 19 and have been married for over 11 years. These last 6 months or so of my life have been really difficult for many reasons, not least because my mum has Alzhiemer’s disease which tears me apart on a daily basis.

My Mr Magnificent has been by rock! Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have when we see it day in and day out and so today I want to show my appreciation for a man who has supported me in everything I have ever done, strived to always have my best interests at heart, told me I was the best when I didn’t feel like I was and has held me everytime I have cried uncontrollably through all that life has dealt me, especially in recent months.

I just want to let you know that there is value in marriage, in an intimate relationship that seeks the best for both parties. There is value in a companionship that is mutual where real love is shown regardless of the circumstances. My husband has always been by my side, even when I haven’t noticed him there or appreciated his presence. To be honest I don’t know a better man and those who know me, know that I have no problems saying if he’s an idiot!! (Well OK sometimes he is!) But the bottom line is that I have a truly magnificent husband who is in tune with me and my needs. Ladies and Gents hope is not lost, if you are willing to work your partner, husband/wife or what ever you choose to call the love of your life can be and often is your rock. Sometimes you just have to look around you and recognise it (regardless of the dirty dishes!)
