I know....

That I'm lucky. I tell myself everyday. Justin and I have been together for a long time now, and our love has only grown stronger. We appreciate each other. He thanks me for dinner every night and even makes sweet comments when the house is extra clean. I thank him for being so good to me and providing for our family. We never let those things go unsaid.

Sometimes I say that I trained him well. When you are someones first girlfriend at 15 you seem to have an influence on them. He was never broken, his heart was intact when I got to him and I did my best to never hurt him. We had our high school problems that any teenager does but all in all we have such an amazing relationship and we always have.

This year was the second year in a row that Justin missed my birthday. I understand that his job requires him to be gone sometimes and we have no control over when that is. Sometimes it's sad to spend that special day without the one you love. But he made it up to me. I didn't expect it but I knew he would, because that's the man he is.

He had duty on Friday so when he got home on Saturday he came upstairs to wake me up and surprise me. I rolled over to see him there crouched next to the bed....in his hands he had a dozen pink & white roses (our wedding flower), chocolates and my favorite Starbucks drink. Then he told me to get up and get dressed because we were going to breakfast! We all got ready and went out. It was great to sit and eat and spend time together. Then we did a little shopping and came home to hang out. For my birthday Justin also got me a book series that I've been wanting but didn't want to buy for myself. lol.

It was such an amazing day and I couldn't have asked for it to be any better. I know I am truly lucky and blessed. I don't know what I would do without him in my life.

The flowers I woke up to.

He's a good guy. I love the idea that he's never had his heart broken. I think that can really build a strong relationship. I wish my hubby's hadn't been broken - it might make things easier for him.

What a great post! I am just discovering the world of blogging, and I'm enjoying reading about the lives of fellow military spouses. Looking forward to future posts!
