It’s not a real thing. Well, not that I know of. I just had a day of my own.
I had the day off work for my birthday and just sat here thinking about my husband and marriage, all day. I was looking at wedding photos and our wedding highlights video and my heart was (still is) so full of warmth and love.
Marriage is just incredible. It’s so much more than I ever imagined it to be. Being with my best friend every day and every night - it’s just wonderful.
People ask the question “how’s married life?” and some friends of ours who recently got married put it so true - the life part is hard. but the married part is great. These first 7 months haven’t really been what I imagined them to be. It’s not because we got married though. It’s just the season that our lives are in at the moment - and the best part of this whole rough season is being married to my best friend.
I moved away from home and my family, and I’ve struggled with it pretty bad. I started a new job and I’m not the only one there who wants to leave, Jacobs dad passed away after a long battle, and my nana has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Everything has just been a little challenging and trying - but I am so thankful for God’s timing in that Jacob and I are able to share every emotion and feeling with each other through each of the hard times!
I appreciate and am so thankful for who Jacob is and what he brings to this marriage. Honesty. Openness. Selflessness. Patience. Love. Understanding. So many attributes that I can’t even name but every single one is tailored perfectly to the relationship that he and I have. God is sooo good.
I feel so blessed to have this man in my life and I pray that I would never take him and his love for granted. I’m so ridiculously excited for the rest of our lives together and everything that God has in store for us in our marriage. I can’t wait to see this man as the father of our children - He’s going to be the best!
