Sometimes...


Sometimes I feel the need to just drop to my knees and thank God over and over for the wonderful man I have the privilege of calling my husband. There's no one in the world I'd rather struggle and succeed with. I know deep down there's no one better matched for me in this world. He compliments my quirkiness in every way. 


We had a conversation the other night about my hopes, dreams and goals. As I hugged and thanked him for supporting me, he said, "When have I ever told you no?" 

It dawned on me in that moment....He hasn't

He has one hundred percent always supported me. He has loved me through every crazy idea I've come up with! If something I want doesn't work out, he's the one comforting me and thinking of ways to make it happen.


He's so much like my daddy in all of the ways that really matter. Those two men push me past my limits. They talk me through everything jumbled up in my head. They are my constant source of encouragement. All of my life, I knew that people like my dad were rare. I never imagined I would end up with a man who pushes me to greatness like my daddy. 

I've got so many wonderful opportunities developing in my life right now. At times it's overwhelming. I struggled with change, even when it's absolutely fabulous. My husband puts everything into perspective and walks me through it. I've never been a sissy, but he makes me even tougher. He moves mountains to see me pursue my dreams. 

I know so many people never have to chance to experience the kind of marriage I have. Ryan and I haven't always had this either, but we worked together and appreciate every second of it now. I strive to be as good to him as he is to me. I think that's what makes it work. He's such a blessing in my life and I want to take the time to fully appreciate everything he does for me and for our family. 


I thank God every single day for my husband. God blessed me with a man better than I ever imagined for myself.

  1. That's so beautiful, Wendy! I complain about my husband more than I thank God for him, it this makes me realize how lucky I am as well. It may not be perfect, and we may not have found the place you and your husband are in, but it does seem to be getting better and better each day as we adjust to all the changes we have gone through in the last few years and grow together. Thanks for reminding me to be grateful and count my blessings!

    1. It's so easy to focus on the negative sometimes. I sometimes get trapped in that way of thinking until I hear someone else is dealing with something so much worse than I ever imagined. It makes me feel so grateful for the life I've been given.

      Ryan and I struggled for several years. We turned our marriage over to God when Caleb was little...still had a few struggles, but eventually He brought us to a better place. I think we go through difficult times so that we may better appreciate the blessings we are given.
