This week is our annual St. Joseph County Fair. We've always gone to the fair since we moved out here. It was funny the first 3 years (remember I was 18 when I moved here) that I got in free to the fair as it was free to those 14 and under. I had to pay for the first time when I was pregnant with Malea. I took today off to go to the fair for Kid's Day. Tradition usually was that my Mom took the kids on Monday and I would meet her there to pick up the kids in the evenings. Our family would then go back on Wed or Thurs and do a couple rides and walk through the barns.
Today it was hard seeing all the Dads at the fair with their kids. Dave was always riding everything with his kids and Keagan is right at the height where he needs a parent to ride things with in order to go on them. Sometimes Malea was fine to take him , but others not :( My sister's boyfriend did get a wristband and did go on 2 of the with him - so that was great.
I make it through most days - weeks really - without crying. On the way home from the store I heard Bless the Broken Road and that song always reminded me of my relationship with Dave. I always thought my broken road led me to Dave and knew that everything I went through in life set me up for him. I didn't exactly have a troubled life, but I had some trials that were certainly difficult for me to go through. Sometimes it is really hard trusting that everything will be ok. I hope that any married person that reads this hugs their husband or wife and does not take any moment for granted. It could certainly be gone at any moment - without notice!
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
