My life being a first time wife has been challenging. Whenever I got married, I did not know what to do. I felt like I was in kindergarten to learn how to be a wife. I was happy, I was excited and nervous all at the same time. Now, as time passed on I grew into being married. I learned the basic things and figured out the rest as years came and went.
Sometimes, I still get the jitters, and it has been almost twenty three years that I have been married. Most times it feels like the first time I ever said the words, I Do. It has been a long journey to make it this far through the good and bad times, but surely if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a single thing.
Married life isn’t easy not by any means. It is a lot of give and take, heartache and tears, and some sleepless nights to boot. Most of all, I have been the best wife I can be and will be for as long as I live. C.2022 L.A.
