I'm lucky in love!

Warning: mushy blog!

I saw this on a t-shirt the other day and realized there was supposed to be humor in it, but maybe to someone this is their life. I thought: "how sad".

Maybe all these deployments (back to back to back to back) for the last 2 almost 2 1/2 years have made me more appreciative of the things in my life. First and foremost, I am lucky to be IN love with my spouse after 12 years of marriage and 15 years of knowing and being with the same person. I can't imagine seeing any truth in that picture above in our marriage.

Can you imagine being married to someone you didn't love & respect & WANT to spend the REST of your life with? I just couldn't. Waking up beside something every day that I wasn't excited to see? Seeing that same person day after day, month after month, year after year and not even like him a little? What a wasted life!

I am a lucky girl. I'm not sure I always deserve it, but I don't take it for granted. That is for sure. I have a man in my life that takes care of me, makes me a priority in his life; respects me; makes me laugh every single day; who is the best father to my two children; who is just as invested in me as I am in him. I have a man in my life whom I trust with my entire life; whom is committed to me and I to him so much so that I moved away from everything that was familiar to me to make a life of our own together.

Simply put: I know I'm lucky a lucky girl. The game isn't over! Thank God.

Yep, you were right: mushy.

:D Glad that's the way it is with you and my little bro, though. I'd hate to have to kick him out of the family. ;P

I think it is great! I always say that about you and awesome and amazing that you are both so still in love after all this time.

You are role models for the rest of us!

I know just what you mean. I always think how sad it is not to WANT to run home and tell your spouse everything that happened in your day. John still introduces me as his sweetheart and I love it! COngratulations on knowing you have a special thing and striving to keep it that way!

Ditto Chrysta. It would be sad to lose Scott:) You, obviously, would stay.
I love this post! And I feel pretty happy knowing I have the same game goin' on. It's downright refreshing, isn't it?
