It’s been 2 weeks since I have written last, and it feels weird going that long without letting my thoughts out. Life has been insanely busy these past few weeks. Girls wrapped up their cheer season, I wrapped up my photography season, month end closing at work, lots of homework and tests, Halloween of course, and becoming closer with my wife and family.
But today is, in my opinion, the first day of the Holiday season. And to me that means it’s a time for self-reflection, looking back on the year, spending time with loved ones. So I need to take a minute to write these things down.
Now I don’t typically post anything regarding my personal life with my wife, but I have to share. These past few weeks have been, what I would call, a reawakening. I have been reminded of all the reasons I fell in love with my wife. We have had our low points, and yes they have gotten really low as in almost ending our marriage, but in the end we have come out of our low times stronger than ever. As in, in the last 10 years that I have been married to this woman I have never loved her more than I do right now. It’s as if we have rediscovered each other after all this time. We are closer now than we have ever been. Our communication is finally where it should have been all these years. We are no longer walking on eggshells around each other in fear of hurting, upsetting, annoying or bothering the other person.
This is the love of my life. Truly. As in I literally would be lost in this world without her. She means that much to me that I can’t imagine, nor do I ever want to think about, what life would be like if she weren’t by my side.
Be grateful for the people in your life. Stop worrying so much about the little things that truly don’t matter. Don’t make a big deal about the stupid issues. Appreciate, and SHOW appreciation for those you love. And make sure you tell them, and let them know every, single, day how much they truly mean to you.
I am so fortunate to have found this beautiful, amazing woman at such a young age and that I get to spend all my life with her, and create our lives together, and raise our children together.
