5 Years & Going Strong!

I am celebrating my five year anniversary without Mr. Wonderful.  A few years ago that would have made me furious and we would have fought for days about it.  See what a good marriage counselor can accomplish..ha!  Mr. Wonderful is celebrating Christmas with his kids and that’s ok.  I am not a step mother, I am Mr. Wonderful’s wife.  That decision wasn’t ours, it was a situation created by a spiteful ex-wife and a controlling mother-in-law-it’s ugly but true and I am totally ok with it.  I hate it for Mr. Wonderful, but I’m ok with it.  Back to the good stuff…

Last night my wonderful spare mom (I don’t like calling her step mom, she is wonderful) found a card behind the coffee pot.  When Mr. Wonderful dropped us off at Dad’s he must have snuck it behind the coffee pot.  It was the most beautiful anniversary card, isn’t he great? 

When I woke up today I thought how different things are from five years ago and all the things we have been thru.  I love him more today then I did five years ago.  I admit five years ago I wondered if we would make it, today I know we can and will.  I feel very blessed to be Mrs. Carl Chasteen and can’t wait for another five.
