Thankful Thursday: Spouse/Significant Other

Oh my goodness, there is so much I could write about this man! I’ll try to keep this as short and sweet as possible because I could honestly go on and on about him. I also apologize for the photo spam that is about to happen!

Our first photo together! (October 2014)

Danny and I met and married within (almost) a two year time span (it was officially two years together as of September 26th this year and we were married in July), but as they say, “when you know, you know”. I knew pretty quickly that he was the one for me and I’m so thankful that he felt the same way! We have been through quite a bit together in such a small amount of time and it has been nothing short of wonderful!

There are so many reasons why I am grateful for Danny. I often tell him how thankful I am to have him in my life, but sometimes I don’t think I can express enough just how much I truly appreciate him. He is my biggest supporter. He encourages me every single day and he loves me unconditionally. I am an emotional person and I can be quite sensitive at times (okay, basically all the time). I get anxious very easily and I can just seem like an overall mess. But he always tells me that he loves me and that he will always support me. I never feel like I have to apologize for my emotions because he has accepted me and has chosen to love me for who I am and who I will grow to be.

Danny has encouraged me to strengthen my relationship with Jesus and to keep trusting and having faith in Him. I am continuously learning about God’s word and what it means to be Christian and I will admit that there have been times where I have struggled with my faith walk. Danny has such a strong faith in Christ and he encourages me to continue on my journey. We often do daily devotions together before bed and we will always take the time to discuss lessons we learn from mass on Sundays. A lot of our conversations are rooted in faith and that is something that I believe has helped us solidify our relationship. It’s inspiring to see how strong Danny’s faith is and it has helped me with my own faith journey.

Danny is unapologetically himself which I really admire. He is a self-proclaimed DC comics fanatic with a specific love for Superman (he has many Superman related things, from his Superman comic book collection, to towels, to mugs, to slippers, to his two Superman tattoos). He is silly, kind, and is a true child at heart. He is passionate about Jesus and what faith means to him and he loves to share that passion with others. He loves to make people smile and laugh as often as possible. He is confident and secure in everything that makes him who he is and he always encourages me to be the same way.

Always with the silly faces! (November 7th, 2016)

When I met Danny, I was at a point in my life where I was feeling impatient and frustrated with not having a relationship with someone. I talked to my mother and grandmother very often about this frustration and they told me that I needed to be patient and trust God’s timing. He would put the right person in my life at the right moment and I had to trust that it would happen when God felt I was ready. Not too long after one of these many conversations and after many prayers, I met Danny. There was an instant feeling of comfort and friendship with him and that made it so easy to build this relationship with him. I thank God for that every day.

I am so in love with this man! He is truly my best friend and I am so thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with him!

It’s also important to note that a relationship is never really “perfect”or easy one hundred percent of the time. We face obstacles and go through rough patches once in a while. But in the face of those tough times, we have always managed to come out stronger. We continue to build on our relationship with lots of communication, trust, and love.

We’ve learned so much from and about each other already and I look forward to many more years of loving one another, learning and growing together, and making incredible memories. I will be forever thankful for my thoughtful, loving, amazing husband!

I’ll stop there since I know that I could easily keep blabbing on about how much I love and appreciate this awesome guy (so much for keeping this short and sweet…oops)!

Week two of the gratitude challenge is now complete!! I am so excited to continue this challenge and I hope that you will enjoy reading these posts as much as I will enjoy writing them!

Have a great Thursday everyone!
