People always post their best moments here for likes but what about quarrels and disagreements? We all know marriage is no fairytale and we struggle when we transit from married life to having kids. But still i thank God for teaching me to be understanding and submissive. Now that our lives have become one, let’s continue to fill each other with love as we learn to count our blessings. Truly accept your loved ones for who they are is a way to sustain a relationship and I know it’s not easy but I’m grateful and glad that we are learning and getting better at it. Happy 1st anniversary baby 💕@bkngoi #countyourBlessing #GodMercies #GodBlessing #tracyleemeileng #FirstAnniversary
