That is just one example... and I have thousands of things I have done because I don't have much patience. And it is quite embarrassing.
I have noticed so many AMAZING changes since I have really started to focus on my relationship with Jesus. I really have. I wake up in a better mood, I don't get ridiculous over as many silly things as before ( " I am no where near where I need to be, but thank God I am not where I used to be" Joyce Meyer quote) I can honestly love and appreciate my husband 10 fold what I was before. And I am so thankful for that. Marriage is hard, and I didn't realize how hard it would be, at times, but oh man IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT! I love my husband more and more every day!
Today, at lunch I came home quick and he made me a candle light lunch!! How sweet is that!! seriously. I love him to pieces.
I remember when we were dating, we went on a retreat through our church at the time, and I was sitting there thinking and praying that I would marry this man. And oh how badly I wanted to be married, to him, and thinking to myself "he was so amazing".
I may have went through a little time here and there where I didn't think he was all that amazing, but that was my craziness. I wasn't appreciative of what was right in front of me. I didn't appreciate him for who he was. Which is a shame, and all I can say is I am glad I figured it out so quickly in my marriage. I feel like some never figure it out.
Out of the 2.5 years we have been married I can honestly say I love him more and more every day, and I cant imagine the crazy love relationship we will have in 50 years from now!

HE IS MY LOBSTER.
(from an episode of friends... Phoebe says it) :)
PS- Now just to get this straight, my husband isn't normally a candlelight dinner kind of guy. Nor is he perfect. So if you are reading this and thinking "I wish my husband was like that" I can assure you, I could tell you things about my husband (or anyone other than your husband) and you would really appreciate your husband. It has been really hitting me hard, how important our attitudes are. It is all about perspective. Appreciate what you have, and be thankful for it, each and every day. period.
LOVE this quote. (got this from pinterest)
