9 months and counting...

It is about half past midnight and we have just arrived home from Orlando!! What a trip it has been! I have to say, I am glad to be back in my bed!! But I will post about all this later!!

Today (as in very early Monday morning/Sunday night) I just wanted everyone to know a little information!

It has been nine months to the day since I married the love of my life! Though things are not as I would have planned, my heart pitter patters and then melts at thoughts of our future! I am so very blessed to have married a man that is so loving. He tells me every single day exactly how he feels. He promises every day to make me happy for the rest of our lives, and I believe every word.

Mr S is going to be such a good Papai! I am SO happy to be married to someone who values family so much. I have been given a deadline of January 2010. That is when i supposed to be giving birth to our first child. Haha. He makes me laugh! I told him let's work on getting him home and spending some time together first! But I am so very happy that he is so excited to have kids and to be such a good Dad. Have I mentioned that we have already named them? And talk about them all the time by name? It's true and it's a lot of fun!

I am so excited for our future together. I know that we are not facing an easy thing. I think Mr S said it best the other night, "Everyone's lives are difficult. We are not excused from that, our lives will be difficult too. But, Mrs S, I love you, and that makes things a lot easier. If we do it together, we will be happy." How could you not love a man that tells you that?? Mr S gives me hope for us. I know that marriage is not easy. I watched my parents struggle, have a terrible relationship, re-marry and still struggle. Am I looking through "rose-colored glasses" as my dad would say?...maybe. But I think I would rather look through those than go through life so cynical and unhappy.

This weekend I get to go see Mr S for the first time in 9 months...I can not believe we have been apart for so long. The time has truly gone fast and so very slow all at the same time. I can not wait to get back and tell you everything about it! I know it will be SO good, but SO hard at the same time. It was so hard to leave Mr S the first time I left St Thomas...I imagine it will be equally as hard to walk away...

Thank you all for taking this journey with me! Thank you for all your support and love! I am so excited to be reporting of the happy times to come and for all of you to share in mine and Mr S's life TOGETHER!

You're such an inspiration to me. I'm amazed that you are so strong and pray that Sidnei will be released soon. "This weekend," what a glorious two words for you and they mean so much in so many different ways! Take care and I hope the flight goes smooth and the trip is all you hope it will be and then some!

I´ve followed your blog for a little while now and really like it. But can I ask you why you are living apart from your husband? I have not found the answer as of yet and thought I may as well ask. (I´m direct like that) :)
I´m also very interested because my daughter who lives here in Paraguay is having a long distance relationship too. And I can see how hard it is!

Ronnica said...

I'm sure you can't wait to see him again!

AndreaLeigh said...

I bet you are just on pins and needles! I didn't realize it was coming up so soon. Girl, I'm so excited for you!!!

Bia said...

I'm happy for you, Stephanie, I can imagine how much you have been waiting to seee Sidney and I can almost tell exactly how you feel! :)

Be strong because it's going to be easy leave him again. You are gonna feel as torn as you felt the first time, but I can assure you that you will be fine again, just as you are right now. Takes time but we are gonna be fine! I'm sure!

And I can't say eactly that it's a rule, but brazilians are very good parents! heheh!! At least, I had a great dad and a great grandfather!

hugs!

Carla said...

The Pink Owl said...

thank you for the sweet comment tonight! Happy 9 months--can't wait to hear about your weekend!

~*amber*~ said...

Glad you are back safe from Florida!

Happy 9 month anniversary!

I am so excited for you that you get to go see him this weekend. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that it will probably be hard to leave him again. But, honestly, it is what it is right now and you have to keep faith in knowing that soon he will come home and you won't have to leave him again. If it was easy, it wouldn't be life.

I am going to say prayers that he will be home for your one year anniversary. Maybe you could take a small trip to celebrate...to somewhere closer to home. :)

you keep those glasses ON! Cynicism is really not a pretty quality :)

Ashley said...

He does sound great... even through all these hard times. January 2010 is fast approaching, girl! I know ya'll are excited but you definitely need time to be with each other and enjoy marriage together before you bring the little ones into your home. You'll both be great parents whenever the time comes!
