Why You’re My Forever – Another Touching Story

Entry Pic

Last month we had a Video Contest. To enter, we asked people to tell us why their significant other is their “Forever”. We had multiple entries with heartfelt stories; some of which definitely left us teary-eyed. Some folks really poured their hearts out!

Needless to say, there can only be one winner! This fine gentleman missed the deadline but wanted to share with everyone why his special someone is his Forever, regardless of the contest. Kudos to Luc for reminding us that we should be telling people special in our lives how much we love them, regardless of a contest.

Way to go Luc! You won more than a prize in our books ; )

Here’s what Luc wrote on his Forever’s Facebook Wall one morning a few weeks ago:

Thinking we would never get married because it is sooo expensive I’m jumping on a golden opportunity for the last step of our lives to be complete….Why is my fiance my forever well where to begin…

We met in 2005 when I was suppose to go on a date with her best friend and 2 days later BAM On a date with her. It lasted about a month; WHY? Because I’m dumb and I went with my ex again.

In 2009, November 1st,  hungover sitting at my computer desk, I decide to go on Facebook to see what she’s up to these days without thinking she would give me another shot. HELLO! The same night we go watch a movie. Since that day everything we did, we did together; we laughed, fought, cried and made kids of course.

The kid part was quite the rollercoaster ride as some of you may already know…7 or 8 pregnancies, I lost count . The one pregnancy that really tested our relationship, strength, and perseverance was when we gave birth to our little bundle of joy Samuel,  March 19 2011. Twenty-two weeks, so happy the crucial period of 3 months had passed, going for our first ultrasound which turned out to be a definite nightmare!

Samuel was diagnosed with DiGeorge syndrome, which affects the chromosomes. We were faced with the decision knowing the odds were slim to go with it or terminate the pregnancy. We sat, talked, cried to finally come to an understanding that we could not let a child suffer in such a way. Knowing multiple open heart surgeries, or even a heart transplant, were on the way starting the day he was born. That’s still a moment in our lives that touches us deeply.

We held our heads high and in February 2012 our perseverance paid off with the birth of our little Sofia, who’s now all grown up at almost 4 years of age. For the next 2 years we had no luck on having another child;  we had 3 miscarriages. At that point we were thinking she couldn’t carry boys. Our little Cédric surprised us all when we went for the ultrasound and she said it was a BOY! We had mixed emotions of being happy and nervous because we wanted our little boy to be 100% healthy. And he was! We finally got a chance to meet our little buddy on June 12th, 2015. That morning I was getting ready for work and she said “you’re coming with me, I think I’m in labour!” (haha). Now we are a wonderful family of four living in Cocagne with a pretty little angel watching over us…and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Speed bumps made us stronger in ways that I couldn’t imagine. They say when you can get used to living together you’re made for each other; but that’s only a tiny test in my opinion. Married would be a tiny detail but would definitely add a milestone to our ups and downs in our 6 years together.

AND THAT’s why you are my forever and I should have won the 5000$ from La Mine d’Or in Moncton. The only problem is that I only found out about the contest the day after the deadline for video entries, but I still thought I would share what I wrote with you.

Have a great day!

Love You XoX

A She Said Yes Love Story

It’s funny how life has a way to propel us in certain directions and how, in retrospect, the difference between one person’s action can make the difference between an amazing adventure or a mere afterthought.

Month’s ago a colleague approached everyone and said, “Did you see the picture of the couple on our Facebook page?”. Most of us said, “What are you talking about Mike?”. Not knowing what to expect, were held aback by the picture we saw.

Contest Inspired by a Picture

Inspired by a Picture

On February 20th, 2012, a lovely couple posted this wonderful picture on our Facebook page, along with the message “Thank you, La Mine d’Or! Our engagement was perfect ♥”. The picture went around the store and was quickly dubbed the “She Said Yes! Picture”.

We were truly inspired by the picture. It’s funny how sometimes we lose sight of the important things in life while myopically starring at what we consider to be the big picture. As jewellers we get to see and participate in many peoples’ special moments, but seldom can we witness them.
