A special extra post on this holiday of love. Happy Valentines Day to my husband Chris. 7.5 years have gone by fast and hard. Our relationship has not been perfect ever, it’s been hard and challenging and the best of my life. Sure, we look happy here and maybe we were but this pic was 4 years ago. When he both drank and it wasn’t healthy, I am sure we had SO many problems. I am sure we look happy and in love in the pic, I’m sure it wasn’t just easy like a picture shows.
I was there for you during some hard times. You have been there for me during hard times. We have been there for each other through it all. Nothing good comes easy is what I have learned, and nothing worth having comes easy either.
I’m sure you never thought the wife you married on 8/26/17 would change your life and our life so much just 10 short months after we married. I am so grateful for you. I’m so lucky to have you. I know I’m not easy, each day has it’s good moments and bad. Sometimes you have to deal with a week of hell with me, I admit it and right now is definitely one of those times.
But thank you for loving me no matter what. Thank you for taking on this huge challenge in life. Standing by me, being my biggest supporter and fan. Through my injury, through all we have gone through on this brain injury journey, I cant say enough how lucky I am and how thankful I am for you. The one thing I can take away from this accident, is that I truly married the right man. You have proved time and time again how amazing you are, even when right now I probably don’t deserve it after my multiple break downs yesterday and even this morning. I surely know how to ruin a morning on Valentine’s Day and start your workday off on the wrong tone. I apologize for that.
Happy Valentine’s Day my love. Thank you for being you. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for being such an amazing man and husband. I love you so much and am so proud of you and the man you are and beyond grateful for you💙 You always know how to do little things like bringing me my favorite Reese’s Peanut Butter cups yesterday when you knew I had a horrible day.
Love yourself first before you can love others. And love your brain, it is pretty dang important. Life’s to short to not spread the love.
