My husband is my hero. We married in 1991. We had nothing but happiness and love for one another. After a few years of working different jobs, my husband decided we needed to do more to be successful and achieve our goals. In 1998, he decided to go to college, get a degree, and find a job that he enjoyed that could also support his family.
In 1999 we had our first child, a beautiful baby girl. What a tremendous blessing, but also one of the most difficult times we would experience. I was working two part-time jobs and trying to figure out how to be a mom for the first time. My husband was working full time and taking 20 units of college courses at the same time. For the six years that Monte was in college he tried to be the best father, the best husband, the best employee, and the best college student. I know it was terribly overwhelming for him at times. It was a difficult time for both of us. He showed great perseverance and carried the burden of these responsibilities for those six years.
He graduated from college in 2004! He has been blessed for his ambition, character, dedication, and sacrifice. We have been married now for seventeen years. My husband has a successful career, we have a beautiful, happy family with three amazing children (9, 6, and 5 months), we own a home, we have all of our needs met and then some, and I am able to stay home to be a mom. I will forever be grateful to my husband for his hard work and for the man that he is when no one is looking.
