It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, in the hardships, in life…but today, I’m taking a moment to say that despite everything going on in my life right now, I feel lucky. I feel lucky that I married the man that I did. I feel lucky that after 14 years together, we are stronger than ever. I feel lucky that he goes to work every day, even when he doesn’t want to, to provide a good life and future for us. I feel lucky that even at the end of a long day, he is focused on caring for me and helping me be better for us.
I’ve learned that life can change in an instant. With that in mind, the one thing that I want more than anything is to make my husband’s life better. As he has expressed, what my Daddy wants from me is my submission to his will and his authority. He wants my respect, my trust. My pledge today is that I will work hard every day to give him that, because while we are lucky to have each other now, you never know what tomorrow might bring.
I want to live my life to the fullest, love as hard as I can, and enjoy the good moments that this life offers.
