Sometimes I just get overwhelmed with how much I love you and I try my best to tell you and then it comes out in this big mushy paragraph and I don’t want to be annoying so then I don’t (always) and then I just sit here and miss you.I wish I could constantly show you how much I love you instead. If I was with you, it would be so much easier. Because I could just look at you, grab your hand and smile, and that would be enough. But instead I’m stuck all the way over here with over a million words in the English language and I can’t find the right way to put them together.
Every year around Thanksgiving, you’re asked “what are you thankful for?” I don’t know about you, but every year I get kind of flustered when someone asks me that, “do I have to pick just one thing?”. I have been through a lot of challenges in my life, as most of you have I’m sure, but I am also blessed with everything I have been given and the people that are in my life (whether they are still here or not). First, I’m thankful that my family moved to Ohio. Whether I want to admit it or not, this place has been the best place for me growing into the woman that I am and want to continue to become. I’m thankful for the friends I have made, the bad decisions I have made, and the growth that has come from all of it. I am thankful to have dated a guy all throughout high school who showed me exactly what I don’t want in a man. I’m thankful that I went to the high school that I did, so that I could become friends with people who would later turn into my family. I’m thankful that my friend convinced me to go to a party that I didn’t want to go to, because that night I met the love of my life. I’m thankful for the challenges that the military have given us because it has made us so strong as a couple and has made us both realize how much we want to be together. I am thankful for deployment, so both of us could step back a little bit and not take so much for granted. When you think you have it bad, you really don’t. I’m thankful that everything so far has worked out in his favor with the military and he has accomplished almost everything he wants to do with flying colors. I’m thankful that he supports my career choice as a photographer and although he teases me at times, lets me bloom and flourish in my ridiculously crazy artistic ideas. I’m thankful that my family has stayed together although so much has been put to the test. I’m thankful that I have another amazing family who loves me as their own and let’s me join into their crazy life with all my crazy baggage and family. I’m thankful that I live in a country where I am even free to express what I am thankful for, and I am goddamn thankful for the men and women who protect those freedoms for me and for my future children.
I am thankful for a lot and I’m sure you are too. When someone asks you this year, “What are you thankful for?” why don’t you respond, “I can’t think of one thing, I’m not.”
If you’re married or dating someone in the Marine Corps Special Forces…pleaseeeee contact me. I have a few questions that I would like to ask you.
PLEASE and THANK YOU :)
Nothing is better than being with you.
The love of my life and I at the Marine Corps Ball in Myrtle Beach, SC. We had an amazing time!
Now, this doesn’t have to pertain to military relationships, distance, or anything….just plain old mushy gushy love. The long of the short of it, is that it’s not always that. It’s not always mushy, gushy, and what you see in the movies. Loving someone is hard. No wait, scratch that…let me say it a different way. Falling in love is SO easy; effortless, even. But staying in love, that’s the hard part. After a while you both will have to put effort into staying in love. But, that’s just how it is. And, sorry to break it to you romantics, but I’m going to be like your parents when they told you Santa wasn’t real….If you believe that there is only ONE person in the world for you, you’re an idiot. That’s just a stupid belief that is created by today’s love stories, fairy tales, and Nicholas Sparks books. Okay, so now you’re probably mad…but think about it. Out of EVERYONE in this world, you are gonna say that the person you are with/that you end up with is the ONLY one who could make you feel that way? Noo way. My boyfriend and I have even had this conversation before…we are madly in love, but it’s a bit childish to say that we couldn’t love anybody else. BUT DOESN’T THAT MAKE IT EVEN MORE SPECIAL?? It makes the bond between us that much more amazing because we could be with anyone, we could love anyone, but we just want each other. We are done looking and yeah there could be other people that match our personalities and what we look for in a spouse, but why bother with them when we have each other. Loving a person is hard. It’s all about not giving up, even when times are hard and not letting the other person walk away even when they tell you to let them go. I was actually thinking today, there were so many times, when I could have given up on us…some could argue and say that I should have given up…and that would have been it. Done. But, I didn’t. I never will. I will always grab his hand if he ever walks out the door. I am never going to give up on him and I know he will do the same for me. Loving someone doesn’t mean that things will be perfect. Every couple argues, every couple says things they don’t mean sometimes, and every couple has the ability to get over it all….but in the end which one will you be? When you get married, what two words come to mind. “I do.” duh, that was an easy question. But think about it, saying “I do.” doesn’t stop that day. You need to say “i do” every single day from that day on. You should have 60+ years together of you both waking up in the morning and rolling over to the other persons awful morning breath and you still say “i do”. Because, we all know people that are divorced. We all know that just because you say “I do” on your wedding doesn’t mean that you have no other choice and that the other person is glued next to you. Loving someone is about saying “i do” “i do” “i do” “i do” every single day even when “you dont.”
