Cancer won't hurt or help your marriage.
That statement is in a book Eric was given by a friend of ours. It is written for men whose wives have breast cancer.
It's true, for the most part. Cancer hasn't broken us up. Eric didn't run for the hills when I lost my hair or had my breasts removed.
It also didn't make us swoon like lovesick teenagers.
We are exactly as we were before...only better.
We are more tolerant and a better team. We truly enjoy our time together. We are living every day to the best of our ability.
I am so lucky that I have someone that pushes me to be the best person I can be and accepts me for who I am.
My best decision ever was to marry my best friend.
Happy Valentine's Day!
