I try my best to express my feelings and share my heart but there truly aren’t words for how much this man means to me! I am grateful for every moment we have together and during the times we are apart I am still grateful. He is the one I celebrate with- from the smallest little things to the biggest blessings- he is the one I want to share my special moments with. When we can’t celebrate together, as much as my heart yearns for him, I celebrate the fact that I have someone who I care that deeply for. I celebrate the fact that it is hard being away from him because dang it just means we have something so abundantly special that makes it hard to be apart. I’m grateful that sometimes it isn’t easy because it only reminds me time and time again how worth it it is! I’m grateful that each time we are reunited, whether it’s only been a “normal” work day, a week, a month or more, my heart can’t help but celebrate. I never want to be apathetic when my husband is away or when he comes home. People ask me all the time for advice on getting through times of distance and separation. It’s not the answer people want but my answer is that it should be hard. The truth is if you feel apathetic then honestly it probably isn’t worth it-or if you're already married then you have some work to do. Now of course there are healthy ways of coping and distracting yourself but ultimately it comes down to choosing love. I will choose love every day for all of my days.
