This past weekend Bobby and I had a great little weekend getaway to Panama City Beach, Fl. We left Friday and spent the weekend lounging on the beach and eating way too much delicious food. However, I think we both spent the entire weekend wishing we could be home with our family. The last few months have been really hard on us. Not so much relationship wise, just hard being away from family and not really having a "normal" life. We are finally in the home stretch though. Bobby will be home not later than August 8 but hopefully before then. It was a strange reality that hit when we were having dinner and watching fireworks and some drunk girl shouted, "Would you rather be anywhere else in the world right now!?" My first thought was, "Well, this is Panama City Beach, so yeah, there a few places I'd rather be." My second thought was one we discussed later and that I shared with my husband, "Well, I'd really like to be in Houston with my family and friends right now."
The last few weeks a very good friend of mine has been going through a really hard time. She called off her wedding that was supposed to happen last month -- a decision that is definitely for the better but that has still been hard. It's really had me thinking how grateful I am to be married to such an amazing guy and to have a relationship where I can be completely be myself all the time. It doesn't matter how dramatic I am or how nosey I can be, he loves me regardless. I am so glad that this friend of mine realized what she was getting into before she actually went through with the wedding, but I would not wish what she's going through on my greatest enemy. OK, well I don't exactly have enemies, but I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I only hope that she one day finds a man who treats her the way she deserves to be treated and that she can realize what a truly amazing and beautiful woman she is. Any guy would be lucky to have her -- and the next one better realize it!
What are you most grateful for when it comes to your relationship? I know many of you have amazing husbands and I love to hear all of your stories. I know for one, I am SO grateful that I never have to date again! Dating is hellish torture! I never understand why people say marriage is so hard. I thought dating was harder...and it seriously upsets me when people tell brides-to-be how hard married life is. It makes me think they picked the wrong person. Don't get me wrong, it's not a ray of sunshine every second of every day but I totally agree with Charlotte from SATC movie when she says, "I'm not happy every second of every day, but I'm happy every day."
