September 7th is a very important date. It's my wonderful husband's birthday and I haven't posted for his birthday yet! Bad wife!
There are so many wonderful things to say about him. I love many things about this man. He is absolutely incredible to me! I couldn't have asked for a better man to run this race of life with and he definitely keeps things interesting! :)
I absolutely love just being with him. Do not underestimate this aspect of marriage! There certainly is a lot of "just being together" time in marriage. Sometimes alone, sometimes with children, with friends, with family, etc. It helps to have someone that it just comes naturally with. Stop and think for a minute, who would be your first choice to experience some amazing new adventure with, or the mundane tasks of daily life? Mine is always Daniel. (Except for maybe a chick flick! :) He is the best!
I know that I am spoiled and I don't appreciate him near enough. I will talk with friends or family and hear all types of marriage stories and situations - good ,bad, happy, sad, etc. and I always come back to the same thought. I am so happy that I married Daniel Asher! We have an amazing relationship that can only be credited to God.
We are both very "broken" individuals, with many annoying habits and such, but with God we truly become one. Don't get me wrong, we have our misunderstandings. We've brought each other to tears and had some really tough times, but we just come out stronger and loving each other more. I don't know how many times we have talked about how it's when we behave selfishly and make ourselves the priority that we have the biggest struggles in our marriage. I thank God that we have an open and honest relationship with each other and can really tell each other how we feel and know that the other person is really listening too. It's so amazing and freeing!
So, I'm just feeling really thankful and appreciative of him today. He is my now 33 year old husband of 8 1/2 years and still an amazing man! I look so forward to many, many more interesting years together. Happy Belated Birthday, Hon!!
