I'm the lucky one...

...due to the lovely anonymous commenter (coward, what?) on my last post-
I wanted to write a post on reasons why my life is so fabulous:

  • God. He is so amazing and I can definitely see where his hand has guided me in my life.

  • David. When I was younger & I would come up with "lists" of what I wanted my husband to be, David met every single one of those characteristics. The "boyfriend" I had before David was the complete opposite in every single one of the areas that I wrote on my list but I hung on because I felt like that was the direction my life was supposed to go (after all, I met him in college, Liberty is close to my hometown, etc.) I am so glad that I finally got fed up and picked up and moved to DC, knowing that he would realize what I meant to him. Well, finally, he did, and he even came up to DC proclaiming through tears over dinner that he knew I was the one and he wanted to take me "home" that day. I already had my eyes on David, and felt relieved when I sent ex home and called David to come pick me up so we could hang out. David is my best friend, soul mate, lover, father to our future children, secret keeper, confidant, supporter, biggest fan, and so much more.

  • Family. My mom is truly my best friend. It was not until I was 15 and in and out of the hospital that I realized just how important she was and how sorry I felt for treating her so badly for so many years. Some of you that have read my blog for a while know of my plans to stuff her when she dies. We'll just leave it at that. I have also been blessed with a wonderful set of in-laws and the best sisters & brother anyone could ask for.

  • Job. I know, I know. You all are thinking "What Job? You're about to lose it!" I am not afraid when I think about how I have about two weeks at my job. Photography is going so well, and I cannot wait until I can venture out during the day and let people know who I am. There will be a slight change from the pay check I am used to receiving, but it will not be that bad. I am thankful that if worse comes to worse, David's salary can support us. Plus he says if I get a job at Subway then we won't have to worry about making dinner. Such a funny guy he is, I want to throw a shoe at him when he says that.

Speaking of photography, I am now offering custom announcements.. This is just the design I don't have the hard copy yet (I changed the name).

Why should you have to explain why YOU love your life? If you don't think you are beautiful and great, who will? I bet it's someone you know that's secretly hating on you because you are happy. Happy doesn't mean that your life is perfect or without fault, it just means you decide not to complain and thank God for his blessings! Please don't give "anonymous" anymore attention...I love your blog and hope things are going well for you and your hubby. I have a David in my life too :-), Tiff

Sounds pretty fabulous to me!! :) Sometimes, other people just can't stand other people's happiness. Yeah for you - embrace it girl!

Jon and Steph said...

You're awesome girl! Don't let anyone ever make you feel any different! Anonymous commenters have nothing better to do than to make other people unhappy. I had a HORRIBLE comment one time from an anonymous person, it just makes me sad for people like that. All you can do is pray for them.

Kat said...

Great post!

I hope anonymous comes back so she can see what a dink she is. Sense of humor, please? Yes, they're free! Take one! You should try it! It's fun! Weehoo!

Ugh.

God really makes it work out! He always has a plan and he knows what is going to make or break you! Good luck with your photography! It is so good!!!! :)

Love your blog and I'm glad your life is so fabu! I hope your husband's medical condition is easy to manage and heal from.

I've never met anyone else who has threatened to have her mom stuffed when she dies other than me. My plan is to have a recorder of her favorite sayings playing when you pass by her in the entry hall where she is also helpfully spreading light as a lamp. Did I go too far in my need to keep her with me?

I'll be back!

Hey Megan, sorry you had to deal with a cowardly commenter yesterday. You shouldn’t feel that you have to defend yourself to him/her though. You’re happy with your life and apparently they need to get one.

This from one of those 'older' people who reads your site and never posts: I think your anonymous poster needed to lighten up. If you go out and get tatoos, piercings, and other body modifications then you have to realize that others are going to make comments about them weither in private or (like this blog) public. Many of those that I know that have body modifications would have laughed at your comment too. And as for the clutter bug picture, you were dead right. That person should have been aware of what was in her picture before she posted it if for any other reason, to make it looked like the desk was well cared for. All that crap around it make me wonder if it was in really was ingood condition.
