The man who has my heart:
First, I would like to say good morning. I am going to tell you about my husband Bill today. We got married in Nov of 1994 and just recently celebrated our 21st anniversary.
Bill is a hard-working man and a very loving father and husband. I am Bill’s third wife and surely his last. Bill has children from previous marriages and relationships. Outside of our marriage, Bill has 3 girls and 1 boy. Bill broke his back some years back and has several back surgeries. He lives in pain every day but most will never know the pain he lives with because he doesn’t complain. I know because he seems to get pretty moody when he’s in pain is real bad and I have been married to him for 21+ years so I know when he is in pain.
Bill loves to work with junk metals. He can tell you what copper, aluminum, tin, brass and whatever other kinds of metals there is. Bill is the type of person that will be in pain but if asked by a friend or family to help he will be there. He is slow at things he does but he is good at what he does. I get upset when people are more capable of doing things themselves but call him and ask him to do it. This man has had 4 back surgeries and the last surgery they told him he is done. There is nothing more they can do for him.
When Bill and I met I had 3 small boys. He took the whole package. We got married, he adopted all of the boys and treated them like they were his, and they are his. We had a son together.
Bill has to really love me to put up with me. I am a very complicated person. I have mood swings from Hell, I get depressed, I am snappy when I am dealing with anxiety and I am OCD.
Bill lost his son from his first marriage and then we lost a son. Bill doesn’t talk about the losses so I don’t know how he really deals with it all. For me, the loss of one was just too much.
To sum up it all up Bill is my soul mate, my love of my life, a wonderful husband and father, kind and loving person, and he is strong, caring, forgiving, and everything women could ask for.
We have grown together and I could not imagine my life without him.
Now are ready for a kinda funny story? Keep reading 🙂
We moved back to Michigan for a short time after the loss of our son John. I wanted this so Bill went with it. Bill and Billy started going to the race track. Bill was talking about all these old friends he was running into at the track. I was happy he was getting to be around some old friends. Well, one afternoon there is a knock on the door. I go the door and open it and there is a young lady standing there. She asks for Bill, Bill came to the door and she said do you know who I am? Bill said, should I? She said I am your daughter Jessica.
Jessica is a child that was from a relationship that happened before we even knew each other. I was upset at first when this happen but it was not because he had a daughter we were not aware of but because I thought I had been set up to be surprised by this. I was mad because Bill didn’t tell me before she came and introduced herself but he was unaware of it himself.
Bill and I have 11 children between the two us. All are grown except for 2. Garrett will be 9 in June and Joshua will be 2 in July.
This is all for today. You surely will hear more about Bill. Thank you for taking the time to read about my soul mate, my one true love.
