So, November is finally here and with it comes the month and season of thanksgiving. There are tons of people on social media, and even in the blogging world who are taking up the 30 days of thankfulness challenge. I love it, and I have done it in the past, but I have decided this year I am going to write posts of thankfulness as they come to me instead of doing one every single day. So, today I am going to write about how thankful I am for my husband and the father of my son. My husband is the hardest working man you will meet. He wakes up every single morning at 5:30 AM gets ready and goes to a plant where he packages and ships chemical products all day long. He then comes home to spend time with his family and he is the last to complain about his day. He is faithful to a fault and will work himself into the ground to secure his family and make sure that everyone is taken care of and always puts himself last. We have been together for 4 years and married for 3 and it has always been his goal to look after me and make me happy. I see it in all the things he does, the big and little things. Sometimes I see it in the more noticeable things like where we go out to eat or what movies we go see, to the small things like letting me get the scented waxes I love or that charm from Origami Owl I have been wanting. He is so selfless and never looking to see what he can get out of things. I am so spoiled by him that sometimes I don’t even realize how spoiled I really am. The Lord knew what He was doing when He placed Steven in my life and I can only hope that I have been as much of a blessing and enjoyment in life to him as he has been to me. In order for me to be thankful for my husband and the father of my son, I must first give thanks to my God who knew us before the beginning of the world and predestined our paths to meet and our lives to intertwine so intricately and intimately. The Lord could have taken me down so many different paths but He took me down this one, and I am so grateful and humbled and blessed that He took me down the path that He knew would be best for me and was according to His purpose. To some people Steven Allen Dent Jr is a hardworking, kind and caring man, but to me he is so much more. He is loving, hardworking, caring, protective, passionate, just the right of optimistic and realist, affectionate, firm, jealous but not the annoying kind, humble, and most importantly a Godly man who strives to glorify God each and every day. We have had our ups and downs, as every single married couple has had before, but the day we said “I do” was the day we promised each other that we would stick it out with each other no matter what and something I have always felt was important and that I think we have always stuck to is never going to bed mad. That has always been huge for me and I love that we always talk things out in the end and I always feel like through it all we find the good in one another and we always realize that our love should always outweigh our pride and ego and that saying, “I’m sorry”, and “I was wrong” is better than hurting the love that we have with one another and the bond that we sealed on June 11, 2011. I am so thankful that the man I have by my side for the rest of my life is my best friend, my companion, and my soul mate. He is my go-to person for everything and I trust him with my life. I know I can count on him no matter what happens and I truly don’t know what i would do without him.
