My husband and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary this week. What a blessing! And what a gift he is to me, and we are to each other. Looking back – sometimes it feels like we’ve been together forever and sometimes I feel as though our relationship is a new as yesterday.
During our short time together, we’ve had our struggles as all relationships may have. But the one constant that I can reach out for and always come back to is that it has always been worth it. He has always been worth it – we have always been worth it.
We always face things together and we weather our storms as a team. Together. Because we both know that we are worth it to each other to make it this far, and to keep making it farther and farther, hand in hand. There was always something bigger than just the two of us at play, in our lives. There was us. And us needed to stay intact.
So to everyone else out there who thinks times can be tough, and life isn’t always fair — you are right.
But it is worth it.
Things worth doing are worth doing well. And people worth being with are worth the effort.
And to my love, my life, my partner, and my better half: Thank you. Thank you for always showing me that I’m worth it. And that we are worth it. Here’s to many more years that are always going to be worth it. I love you.
