a small break from the haiti posts, here are my thoughts as of late.
2009 was a tricky year. a year that i am happy is over. i don't like to sound negative but i want to be honest too. however in these last few weeks, i have felt such a light in my life. a light in myself. in my marriage. in my home. i love where grant and i are headed, we pushed through that rough patch that every couple goes through. we understand how each other works and although we are not perfect, we deal with disagreements so much more maturely. i love to love him. i really am so crazy in love with him (how can i not be? we are sitting on the couch watching project runway, he just leaned over and gave me his 5th kiss since the show started). and i just learn so much from him. every single day. i know him, i know how he thinks. he knows me and he knows just how i work. and that is such a blessing. i honestly feel like living right and appreciating our blessings has brought us so much closer to the lord and each other. i want others to know that tough times always pass. if we do what we are supposed to do, things will always fall into place.
i read a quote today that said "one of the biggest forms of flattery is knowing that just by being your normal, wonderful self, you make someone fall in love with you." isn't that just perfect?
