  1. after the loss of our third pregnancy, in the hospital for 2 days being rolled to DNC and the nurse said “You sure are lucky…” then explained that most husbands at least leave for coffee. mine made me share the hospital bed so he could hold me and argued with staff to let me have an ice chip. (they didnt but knowing he would have done anything to make me comfy, thats rich)

  2. After 51 years of life, an old boyfriend finds me, and I now understand the meaning of the word cherish.

  3. When I knew I was totally forgiven by God for all my failings and mistakes…when I was set free.

  4. The day when my wife tell me that ” after 8 years of waiting, now you have 9 months to prepare for becoming a good father “
