5 years ago this very day, my life forever changed. I married my soulmate, my Prince Charming, my warrior, my advocate, my very best friend, and my one true love. I married Brian Pond.
I was thrilled to keep my monogram, since my maiden name, Poston, also started with a P, and elated that my new name would now include 2 bodies of water: Lindsey Brooke Pond. Oh, the things that delight us! :)
I cannot imagine walking through the last 5 years with anyone other than Brian. There is no man, the earth over, who has the perfect mix of compassion, love, humor, gentleness, guts, strength, and just sheer wisdom and integrity, like Brian.
In 5 years, we have been through...
- 3 cancer diagnoses
- 8 surgeries
- 6 homes
- 5 dogs
- 11 cars
- 5 jobs
- 1 relocation
- loss of fertility, breasts, and hair
- and, i'm sure I'm forgetting some other biggies
Brian, you have loved me in sickness and in health. You have given yourself up for me. You have carried me when I couldn't take another step. You've motivated me, pushed me, inspired me, and comforted me when I've failed. You are the one my heart deeply desires.
I will love you forever and always!
