24 years.

That's how long this wonderful man & I have been together! He is an amazing husband, father & yes we can now add grandfather or opa to the list! We have six gorgeous children... 3 boys & 3 girls we also have two beautiful grandchildren. The kids & I ALWAYS come first, our every need is met above & beyond! Roy has always been a hands on dad right from the beginning, night feeds, nappies you name it he did it & loved every minute of it! I remember when our grandson was born he told me not to get too attached as Lochlan was not ours but our grandson... yeah right like I was not going to become attached, well let me just say... yes I become very attached to this beautiful little boy, but... I was NOT the only one! so you can just imagine what he is like with our granddaughter Avah! My hubby is the type of guy that would give you the shirt of his back & his last dollar. He is my best friend, my soul mate, my knight in shining armour & I don't know where I'd be without him. As some of you know Roy recently lost his job, but he remains positive & tells me that it's onto bigger & better things... I don't let him see my tears! Roy has been called out to two call outs tonight (he is still on a roster for being on call with one of the company's he worked for) he is a remarkable man, this company in actual fact it's not so much the company it is one man who runs the Gold Coast office, this man is the one who wormed Roy out so his drinking buddy could have the job!! a man who broke his ankle just before he was supposed to start with the company & now only works when he feels like it & simply refuses to be on call, a man who has only himself to think about, he doesn't have kids to worry about!!! it makes me so mad, I don't know how people can be so selfish, I told Roy not to be on call for them anymore, but he says he will honour his word... it's a pity the same can't be said for certain other people!!!! He is a better person then I'll ever be! Before he left he made sure the house was locked up & we were safe! In a few weeks we celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary, I can't think of anyone else I'd rather spend the rest of my life with, I love him with every ounce of my being... I'm truly blessed!

You are both very lucky to have each other because you are two very special people, and stunning too. No wonder you have such beautiful children and grandbabies.
Love will see you through and I feel sure that bigger and better things will come your way.
Love & hugs

Hi Tanya, I stumbled across your blog and read your post.
You are blessed to have the things that counts the most, LOVE, CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, (FAMILY).
It might seem tough at the moment but things will get better!
Your husband sounds like a lovely man therefore the good due him (Karma) will come soon.
I send blessings to you and your family.
