I have been so emotional lately, I guess I can blame this whole pregnancy thing, but it has made me ever so grateful for my attentive, loving and patient husband.
We are no where near perfect, but God definitely knew what He was doing (as He always does) when He put us together.
I hate being weak, emotional, out of control, or ugly in front of people, but when my husband loves me through those moments, it truly is a beautiful and amazing thing. He doesn't love me because I am perfect or because I always choose the right attitude, he loves me because I am me (the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly) and because he made a promise to love me forever. We are able to do this because Jesus first loved us. And He gives us an incredible and challenging example to follow.
We are still learning how to walk out this whole marriage thing (I suspect we will be learning our whole lives), but I am beyond blessed by our beautifully imperfect marriage. He is my absolute best friend and I don't know what I would do without him.
