Today has been a good day for me I have felt so positive and happy, I said to hubby how grateful I felt today and he asked why and my reply was, because I have you for an amazing husband, I have 3 handsome sons and I feel abundant in all areas of my life right now.
Today has been one of those days where I realise how lucky I truly am to have some wonderful people in my life and I have good food in my belly and fresh drinking water and most importantly I have a roof over my head.
We as human beings never look at the things we have and realise how grateful we are, we don’t realise how many people don’t have all that we have and that makes me sad but at the same time very grateful.
So today I was to express my gratitude to all the beautiful things in my life.
Me and my husband have been together 21 years and married 16 this year and my god have we had our ups and downs but I see now marriage is not all about love and romance it’s about the highs and lows.
I look around me and people just give up too quickly on relationships these days it’s not like it use to be, one little argument and that’s it they leave that person and move on.
There were many of times I wanted to give up on my relationship, when my husband spoke to me like shit and when he feel in love with the girl we had a threesome with and when he said he never loved me.
But I stuck with it because for me marriage was for life for me and even tho my husband was a arsehole I still loved him and we still had kids to bring up, I didn’t want my kids to be brought up in a broken home like I was.
Things have changed so much over the past 9 years and our relationship has become so much stronger and I know he loves me now by his actions, we have both grown up and realised how much we actually mean to each other and that we could never be without each other now.
Marriage needs to be worked on it’s not easy but it’s worth it!
Today I spoke with my dad on the phone, I don’t get to see him a lot as he lives about an hour away from me but we always keep in contact and I do go see him from time to time but we both have busy lives.
So we are having our normal conversations as we do and I was saying how we had to go Southampton the other day and he says oh I use to live In Southampton I was like really he said yeah and Birmingham and I lived in Guernsey as well at one time.
I was actually shocked and it made me realise that I don’t know much about my dads life really, we have never really had that father daughter bond so he never told me things his done.
I know some things like his Irish and he came over here when he was 15 and went straight into work as a painter and decorator but that’s really all I know.
It’s just made me realise how much I don’t know about my dad and wonder what stories he would have for me if we had the chance to sit down and chat.
