Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Five Years Ago, I was Lonely

09 August 2013

Five Years Ago, I was Lonely

Five years ago, I would have been stunned if I was told I was going to get married a year later, and I would have laughed in your face if you told me I was going to marry Drew. Five years ago, I was lonely and struggling and tired of the comments I frequently received.

November 2008, Drew and I started dating.  9 months later we were married.

In 12 days, it will be our 4th anniversary. I am so thankful God was gracious in giving me my husband. Yes, there are still times I'm lonely, but no where near like it was when I was single. No, our marriage is not perfect, but we have a Saviour who died for both of us and constantly pray that God will strengthen our marriage.

Linking up to 5 Minute Friday. This week's theme is "lonely".


  1. Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful story!

  2. Happy Anniversary!!!!! I hope you have a special day!!

  3. This sounds IDENTICAL to our story! Depressed, lonely, met, married 9 months and 1 day after our 1st date. It was 4 years in June!

  4. It is always interesting how life has a way of surprising us. I never wanted to get married or have kids. 12 years and 2 2/3 kids later I am delighted at the life I have. And most definitely not lonely. Sometimes I do have to lock myself in the bathroom just to have some privacy for 1 minute. By the way, your knitting projects looks just lovely.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Our 21st is on Aug. 22. :)
