Loss and Relationships

Hi All,

So many times life throws challenges our way that we did not predict, or ask for. Many times these challenges have far more impact then we realise.

The past few months (even years) have not been easy for Justin and I. We have battled loss after loss. Each one with its own particular stab of pain and gut wrenching stress: some have threatened to overwhelm us, and no doubt some have succeeded. But still we keep stepping one foot in front of the other. We are still here, still together.

We had many critics when we first began living together. Many thought we wouldn't even make it a year. Nearly 4 1/2 years later, we are still going. The statistics have always been against us, and we have crossed out nearly every line (and more) on the list of major life crises. Without a doubt, we have been battered and bruised by the roller coaster that has been the first few years of our relationship.

But we still here. We have a very different relationship compared to those few years ago, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
