Married, Partners and Best Friends

He makes me want to be a better person

This is us.

We all need that special someone in our lives. This is mine.  Barden is my forever life partner. He has been my lover my best friend my business partner my better half.  He has loved me when I have been unloveable.  He has loved me and forgiven me over and over.  He has been my example of God’s love. and God uses him to help me to be a better person.  Where would I be without him and God in my life.  We all need a Barden in our live’s (you cant have mine lol, but there must be someone like him out there for you to).  Barden is a big part of my story.  I wont be sharing his story but i will share parts of our story together. Barden and I met in rehab (lol).  I went into rehab in 2000 and stayed for 10 years.  I eventually started running the recovery programme, and thats where we met.  He tells everyone I 13 stepped him, and I guess he is right lol. I will be talking a lot about us, our life together and our relationship in my blog, so this is just a brief introduction about us.  The short version is I had been single for 10 years and was not to keen for a relationship cos I sucked at it big time. I’d already been thru 2 horrible marriages so it was definitely on my to do list, if you know what I mean. This man helped me to change.  We had a very strange start…  he left the rehab and got married…. hehehehe, yes you read right lol.  He called me a few times in the months leading up to his wedding saying, he didn’t know if he was doing the right thing, he had done so much wrong in his life, that for once he wanted to try to do the right thing….  He was wrong lol… He was meant for me.  Every couple month’s for the next 2 years, I would get a call from him. I tried to get him out of my mind. Around 2 years later I got my usual 6 month call to say he was getting divorced and needed to get into rehab again. We have a beautiful love story, 2 broken people, who loved God and who decided from the start that we would accept each other as is, and love each other as is. And we have, and continue to. Beautiful things happen if you are allowed to be yourself.  For the rest of our journey and more, you will have to read my blog.

The couple’s that are “meant to be” are the one’s who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart, and come out even stronger than they were before.
