He's alright...

I've been thinking a lot about my husband lately. It's not that I didn't always know I was blessed, but lately some things have come into the light around me that makes me realize how truly blessed I am. Sometimes I accept who Race is and the type of husband he is at face value and assume that this is who he is supposed to be, and then I hear a story about someone else's husband and realize that Race doesn't have to be who he is. My husband is truly an amazing,  kind, caring, and supportive person, and I don't say it enough. He loves his family, more than anyone I know. His sense of humor, strength, and undying faith make him the man I love spending my life with. We had some REALLY tough times the first couple years we were together, and I remember on more than one occasion thinking "why am I putting myself through this?." Now I know why, it's because all the hard times we went through together, the drama, the jealousy, and everything else that you deal with at that young of an age, made us who we are today. It made us perfect for each other. God knew exactly what he was doing, he was prepping us for a life together. I'm so glad we stuck through it because I can't imagine my life without him now. He keeps me grounded, makes me live for today, and truly makes me want to be the best person I can be. I wasn't born with the gift of faith. It's something I've struggled my entire life with, and until recent years thas has made me angry. I am someone who questions everything, and sometimes I have trouble believing. I am a very concrete person, I need evidence. Race has taught me to believe. My husband's relationship with God is something I've always been extremely jealous of, but even more so have admired. He's had it rough in the past, a  tough childhood in more ways than most, and definitely a difficult religious upbringing, and while most of us would start to doubt, or question, his faith only got stronger. Throughout the years, he's never strayed, he did what was right in life and became a stronger and better man. His love for life is something to truly be admired and I strive to be more like him in that way. I tend to see the negative, but Race is always quick to point out the positive. In so many ways we are the perfect balance of one another. I heard a quote the other day: "Don't marry a man unless you would be proud to have a son just like him"...and I truly can't wait.... batman cape and all :)
Happy birthday to my best friend and a man I love more every year! Can't wait to celebrate another 50...
