Disclaimer: If you are someone who hates reading about how much a wife loves her husband, go ahead and skip because I just can't help myself today. I know it can be annoying when on blogs or instagram women are always ranting about how much they love their husbands. Trust me I've gotten annoyed at many of them. Sometimes it feels like they are trying to prove how great their relationship is when something as intimate as that is best kept private in most cases. I don't want anyone to feel like I am trying to prove anything or shove love in your face, just sometimes you've gotta let it out. I also don't want those who are single or divorced to feel offended or annoyed, but I would love for this corner of the internet to be a place of positivity, especially in regards to love and marriage. Coming from a family of divorced parents I understand the great need for many examples of love in marriage.
There are just some days when I am overcome with how grateful I am for Jason. Growing up I never understood just how essential love and friendship could be. It wasn't until I married Jason that I started to understand it. I've always been a private and independent person. I prefer to do things on my own and to not be a bother to anyone else. I saw people as two extremes, co-dependent and independent, I never considered the idealism of interdependence. For a long time I was stubborn and tried to push Jason away or prove to him that I was independent and that I didn't need him. Thank heavens he was patient with me because I gave him so many reasons to become frustrated and not worth his time. I am forever grateful for his patience. I remember having conversations with Jason when we were dating about the importance of interdependence in a relationship. That was a tough lesson for me to learn because I was so stubborn and felt the need to prove that I didn't need people in order to be happy. But here I am three years later completely relying on my husband and him relying on me. Jason taught me that there is courage in humility.
Being in a mutually loving and trusting relationship is the greatest gift in the entire world. Jason is everything to me and as we start a family I want my children to know that. I always want my children to understand that their father comes first in my life and that my relationship with him is the most important thing to me. We chose each other to be life and eternal partners, committed to a loving and intimate relationship. When all is said and done, after youth and after children, Jason is the one person I will be left with. In the end it will be just us. Our kids will grow up and they will leave us for their own special relationships and that will be ok because I will be left with my best friend, lover, confidant and husband. Kickin' it at 60 years old alone with my honey sounds pretty darn awesome.
