❤ ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤They say behind a successful man there is a strong woman but to me I don’t take that credit for my husband’s success.
Well for some of you who know how we met, partly know the story!
So many questions, criticisms and negative comments have been thrown to us, name calling, judgemental approach’s by people I know and those that I don’t know.
To be straight most have been asking me “what’s wrong with your husband’s eye brows, what’s wrong with his hair etc. I never tended to answer that simply because i thought it was none of anyone’s business 🤷🏾♀right 🤷🏾♀… but today I will speak out simply because there is nothing to hide about it and it’s the main reason I am so proud of my husband.
My husband’s hair started falling out when he was 16 years old due to a condition called #Alopecia (you can google about it and get self awareness) as a young lad he battled with the stigma and criticisms it came with… He kept going, graduated from university, got his dream job, bought his dream house, married his dream wife and had his dream family!
I have seen my husband’s hair fall and grow back and I have stood by him, loved him faithfully, laughed about stuff, cried in different situations, joked, travelled, and still continue to do so.
We are a very happy family and so blessed to have him in my life.
He is beautiful in my eyes, the best person that has been in my life, my soulmate, my best friend, my life and my everything and more.
On a side note I must admit he is such a rascal sometimes
