12 Years and Counting!

12 years ago today I realized I wanted no one but her. Her name is Chardonnay and she is absolutely amazing.

When we met I was a mess. I had no job, I had dropped out of school, and I was practically homeless. I had emotional problems and I was severely depressed. She loved me anyway though and for that I am eternally grateful. She takes care of me and supports me more than is probably healthy and definitely more than I deserve. I can never repay her for all she has done for me but I try everyday. I try to be a better person for her and I try to be there for her the way she has for me all this time. I love her more than anything.

People ask me all the time how we made it this far, and the truth is, staying together is both the easiest and the hardest thing to do. The trick is to keep trying NO MATTER WHAT. There will be misunderstandings and hurt feelings from time to time. You will take things out on each other and say things you don’t mean. You will change and make mistakes and even sometimes take each other for granted. At the end of the day, at the end of every single day, you have to just come together and work it out. Let the anger and the pride go and just TALK. See things from the other’s point of view, say you’re sorry, and try not to do it again. There isn’t much else to it, just remember to love each other and the rest just falls into place.
