Count Your Blessings

Wow, I can’t believe it’s June already! Time has been flying by! Yesterday marked 1 year since my husband’s return from deployment! And it has been a good year, indeed. Ironically, this has been the longest we’ve been together (in the same state) since we started dating 4 years ago! Crazy, huh? Most of our relationship has been spent apart, due to the lovely military. But, we still talked everyday through text, phone calls or FaceTime. But this last year has been great. We’ve really gotten to know a different side of each other through living together. Not only that, but since we both are miles and miles away from our families, it’s more time for us to spend together. We literally do everything together (except work) and some people may think it’s weird, but I love it! Sure, I’ve found little things that annoy me like how my hubby likes to leave his socks in random places or he never replaces the toilet paper but love prevails! Lol

Exactly 1 year ago. Reunited after 266 days of deployment! (blurry, I know)

It’s so crazy to look back at all that I’ve went through in my past years. All the sad and lonely times of me wondering “why is this happening to me?”. But, as I’m getting older I’m learning more and more that things really do happen for a reason. As I grow I’m literally seeing everything fall into place and finally getting the answers to why I’ve had to face certain struggles or obstacles in my past. One example is my long-distance relationship with my husband when we were first dating. I knew I loved him but sometimes I was unsure of how it was going to work out with him being in the military and us not seeing each other everyday. But, I feel that it actually made us stronger because we built our relationship on trust and communication. I am so excited to see what the next year has in store for us!

I truly am thankful for all the blessings that God has provided me with in my life so far. Many of which I feel that I don’t deserve but I guess that’s what grace is. Sometimes we just need to focus on all our blessings because we may not notice how fortunate we really are until we do.

Until next time,
