Hope Everyone had a very happy valentines day! I had a really great time with my bff, Mayra. Do people still say bff? Is that a term that should have been left behind in middle school? Not sure. Although, there are a few terms, that should never be used all together. You know what I'm talking about! Bae? Twerking? Swag? Yolo? We should all just agree to never say these again.
I have realized how important it is to truly marry someone who is madly in love with you. This is not to say that everything will be really easy when you do, but it helps. It helps to want to fight for your relationship, to want to work at it. To be really excited about seeing them and kissing them, and spending every moment you can with them. To hold out for that person, that won't be perfect, but that will love you, and respect you. I would be lying if I said that i have never been mad at my husband or that i have never hurt him, or that he's never hurt me. Just last year alone was an incredibly trying year for our marriage. I finally understand what people mean when they say marriage is work.
In my (almost) 3 years of marriage, I have learned what it means to experience loss with someone, to go through heartache, and stress, and wonder what in the world is going to happen to your family. To have no idea where your life is headed and where you're going to be (still there). To really know what it means to forgive someone, and to be so humbled that it makes you realize how prideful we are even though God has offered up so much free Grace. The biggest lesson I have taken this Valentine's Day, is to marry someone who loves you. Someone who loves the Lord, and who is faithful to Him. Someone who will respect you, and values your opinion. Someone who is willing to fight for and protect your marriage. Because, marriage is hard enough. So to all the single ladies, wait for that guy, because It's totally worth it :)
