Gratitude Journal Entry # 2- Hard Working Man

Today, I'm thankful for my hard workin' man. 

He's not only hard working, but an all around good guy. Though in the early days of our marriage, we were a bit like oil and vinegar.

 Two separate souls, with two totally different personalities that would often clash. In those early days, we found it difficult to deal with our differences, as if only one of us could be "right." But as time went on, we began to see the bigger plan for us and for our marriage. And instead of viewing our differences as a curse, we began to see them as a blessing.   Imagine if we were exactly the same. One of us would be unnecessary in the relationship! We  realized our unique likes, dislikes and opposing personalities bring a richness to the relationship. 

 Over the years, we have learned to love, accept, support, and allow one another to be who God made each of us to be. Today, instead of oil and vingear, we're more like chocolate and peanut butter....... A PERFECT MARRIAGE.

  (I'm grateful for chocolate and peanut butter too- how about you!)
