.just an ordinary day. {february 14th}

I have to say that I am so blessed. Blessed to have a husband that spoils me and loves on me in abundance, everyday.  Sure, valentines day is fun, and cute, and oh so fun to celebrate, but when it comes right down to it, is it really different than any other day? nope. And for that I'm thankful.  Thankful that I am so fortunate to be a part of this fun and loving marriage. He brought me flowers on Saturday, just because. Not because it was a day he felt like he should, but because he saw a bouquet of flowers and thought of me. Those moments mean more to me than any, somewhat, forced holiday.  Sure, we will head out to a fun date night together tonight, enjoying each other's company and some yummy sushi... and will also continue to celebrate this weekend, but at the end of the day, my husband treats me like a Queen everyday! He makes everyday my favorite; everyday is special that we spend together!

I was reminded last night that Valentine's Day is about celebrating those we love.  Not just romantically, but also friendship, true heart to heart relationships. As we celebrated an early Valentines day with our dear friends, celebrating our marriages, praying together, eating yummy chocolate fondu, and just enjoying fellowship with our like minded and like hearted... I couldn't help but also realize it's also about celebrating our relationship with Christ!  I woke up this morning with worship in my heart... literally.  As I was getting ready, praise songs were bubbling out of me.  Many would assume that this was me showing my reverence and love for my savior, but I saw it as the other way around.  God put those songs in my heart, to remind ME that on this day and every day, He loves me more than I could ever fathom or imagine!

I am blessed to have a heart that overflows with love, both given and received.  I have a gracious savior, who loves me abundantly, a husband who loves me beyond my understanding or merit, and friends and family who sprinkle me with love ongoing.  I am a blessed, blessed, BLESSED gal! ♥

And it's THURSDAY! So, that means I get to add to my neverending list of reasons why my husband is so amazing and loves me so unbelievably well!

48}  he knows all the words to "a devil went down to Georgia". I remember the first time I realized this.  We weren't dating at the time.  In fact, I believe I had only known him a couple years.  My jaw dropped.  Being a country gal, and loving CDB, when this OC boy started singing every line to one of my favorites... wow.

49}  he thinks i'm cute when i'm mad.  sure, sometimes this is infuriating.  but, true to my irish blood, i can have quite the temper, so its a blessing he thinks it's cute, haha!

50}  our conversations.  he shares his life with me, the good and the bad.
