Thoughtful Monday

list1 by val on Grooveshark
This weekend was perfect! Me and Valdo have been so in sync. As most of you know we had some trials this summer that tested us. ALOT! Although some things are still hard, other things are looking up. Valdo is still having a sorta rough time but instead of getting angry and frustrated, he's staying postive and happy. I could not be more proud of him!
This weekend we gave each other some space to work on what we wanted to around the house. Valdo went out to the garage to work on the new car we got from my sister and I stayed inside and re-did my craftroom and put away wedding stuff. In the evening we both came in cleaned up and went to the store to grab fixings for dinner.
We cooked dinner together, taquitos, mmmm! Then we watched the ufc heavy weight title fight together! Really it could not have been more perfect!
Sunday we layed low. We hung out together all day. Caught up on our dvr shows, watched Matrix 2 and 3. Then ran out and rented some movies which we cuddled on the couch to watch together.
So sure things are still a little rough in our life now but we are learning that together we are better. We will do more and be stronger working together. We are learning that it does not benefit us to get angry over things that are out of our control but that through patience and faith we will be okay.
Let me tell you this is not something we learned over night. We have been together nearly 7 years and only in the past year have we come to begin to fully understand this. And sure we may have set backs every once in awhile where we forget, but those will be few and far between.
I am happy about all of this. I feel lucky to be with Valdo and to have what we have. Sure things are not perfect for us, hard still even, but we are perfect together!
I feel like I am only just now learning and really understanding what relationships need to work. The work you have to put in on a daily basis. Not that its hard work, just the simple act of being more aware and understanding of your partner. Sometimes thats all it takes. We all want to be recognized and heard. To feel needed and understood.
So today take the time to listen. To let them know you do care. To thank them for the time you spent together this weekend and the time you spent apart!
