Ugh, I am having such a hard time getting up to date on #reverb10! It'll happen today, I promise!
Yesterday's reverb prompt:
December 14 – Appreciate What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?
The one thing I've come to appreciate most in the past year is, without a doubt, Mike. We have both worked so hard to make this happen. I have wanted a chance to be in a relationship with him since I was eleven. Eleven! I knew all along that he and I were meant to be together. We were long distance friends for a long time, and through all the years and through all of our respective relationships, I knew that I'd be happier with him, and that I could make him happier than anyone else.
Eventually I found myself in Florida. It was then that I decided it was now or never and I took matters into my own hands. We hadn't talked in a year and a half, hadn't seen each other in four years, but I didn't care. We met up one weekend and we both knew instantly that this was it. It was exactly the perfect moment we had both been waiting for for so long. A month later, we moved in together. Crazy, I know, but here we are, three and a half years later and happier than ever.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that our relationship has been tested since day one. Mike and I have gone through so many trials and tribulations in our relationship that sometimes I'm still surprised that we were strong enough to make it through. But we did. We're not perfect, sometimes we bicker, sometimes we fight, sometimes we just want to get the hell away from eachother, but no matter what, we always make it through.
I appreciate Mike, our relationship, and our ability to get through tough times together.
I know that this is where I'm supposed to be.
What are you most appreciative of this year?
