The Silver Lining to our Dark Cloud

I don't always agree with that saying but in this particular case I do.

As you may know, Tommy and I have had to postpone our wedding more than once. Each time for me personally I had a breakdown and felt like I died a little inside. It made me sick just thinking about how we had to yet again wait to finally get married. I don't even know how Tommy felt because he never expressed it. But I do know he was not happy about it either.

Even though it has been extremely difficult on us some good has come out of it which is very important. We have had the opportunity to really work on ourselves AND our relationship. It feels good knowing our relationship is rock hard. Despite the fact our engagement has been a waiting game, we're actually happy. And our love is as strong as ever.

Just the other day I was talking to my best friend about it and even though I already knew we were improving I didn't actually realize something good came out from having to wait. We have always felt that we had a good relationship, but in our earlier years we fought a lot (from what I learned it was a "normal" amount). It was more than I would have liked but the good times outweighs the bad so we stuck it out (because come on, who wants to fight?). But as time went on and things improved drastically we both acknowledged that our relationship is pretty awesome :) Its now rare for us to actually fight, have an argument/disagreement, or bicker. And it wasn't even that hard! All we have to do it REMEMBER. It's been great! And yesterday I asked Tommy how he thought our relationship has been and he said "Absolutely excellent". How awesome is that??

Needless to say, all this waiting not only brought us even closer together and deepened our love but it turned out to be the best thing for us.
