Its so beautiful. Its so special. Its so unique. Its not beautiful in that it is perfect because nothing is. But its beautiful through all the scars and imperfections. Through the trials and the pain and the tears. Through the laughs and the joys and happiness. Through the work we put into it. The intensity and the rawness of our honesty. Through our ability to forgive and move forward. Through all of our efforts and our will to never give up and to make it work. Through the care and compassion we show fore each other. Through making it 3 fold with Jehovah. Its just so beautiful. Its a rare love we have. And I am so proud of how far we’ve come. We put the work and effort and the love in and we got a beautiful strong marriage as the result. Its true, its happy, its real. It wasnt always like that but we actively work hard to make it that way.
Its really not a marriage many people can compare their relationships too. I say this with a lot confidence. Because I know what we’ve been through. And most importantly I know the work we put into it. I dont like when people compare my marriage to theirs or to their relationship. In my mind it doesn’t compare. And to think it does is offending. Dont go there.
I have them. Three to be exact. They make everything better. Stressful, naughty, rascals sometimes, yes. But overall such a awesome blessing. We are forever grateful.
…can piss the hell off, then make me blush and crack me up, then piss me the hell off…again, and then get me all giggly with butterflies in my tummy, and all in a span of five minutes. LOL Gosh I love this man. Marriage is awesome ^_^
How the little things they do can give us so much joy. So much hope. So much determination. So much love. Raising children is hard work and it can get tough. I know I do my fair share of yelling and disciplining, but then they do something so wonderfully innocent and loving and you can’t help but be reminded of how fortunate you are to be a parent. They are truly blessings from Jehovah. Forever grateful for our babyboys and all that they do to keep us both moving forward.
We accept the love we think we deserve.
Ok this post is like 3 weeks late because they started school at the beggining of the month but I am so proud and just wanted to post that on here :) So happy that we were able to put them all through preschool and now they are all in elementary! They are growing too fast.
“In Samoa the women are like natural fibers themselves, risen up from the green Polynesian earth. Sun rays are the only lotions they need to purify the smoothest of bronzed skins. In every Samoan woman there is a princess, both graceful and powerful.Samoa is a place set in permanent slow motion as if the spirits watching from on high are yelling at the tops of their lungs, “Don’t walk too fast, There is so much to see in our simplicity.” -Rachelle L-L V.
Having learned about my Samoan culture, people, and history has opened my eyes to the native perspective of not only my Samoan people but also Polynesians in general. I have great pride in the lineage that runs through my veins. Samoa mo Samoa.
New hat from my mister <3 Thanks love I love it!
Songs of Solomon 8:7
Aunty Nida lost a loved one :( So the boys picked these flowers because they said the colors are 'girly & happy' and they said Aunty Nida is also ‘girly & happy’ lol. They said these would make her feel better. So we sent these today and she ^__^ Good pick boys!
I think I can say that a lot of people including myself go into this moving expecting to find something somewhat similar to ‘The Notebook’. Some feel good love story with all its feel goodness and happiness. Well its nothing like that movie, not really. Let me say that it is a WONDERFUL movie and I absolutely loved it but it was not what I expected (The Notebook-ish kinda movie). From my perspective this movie was more about LOVE & MARRIAGE. Real life, over the stars, heart wrenching, painful, raw, love & marriage. Things that if you’ve experienced that kind of LOVE you would know actually happens in real life. It was a very emotional movie to watch. So many parts where your heart just sinks cuz you sorta know the feeling… or you just connect with the characters so well that you empathize with them even to that extent. It was emotional. Very emotional. And it can teach a lot about real love and what it means. It emphasized more so on the struggle in the marriage after the accident, not so much on whether they end up together or not. It was beautiful and yet sore to watch too…but mostly beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved it. It might just be cuz I felt a personal connection with so many parts of it. None the less I LOVED IT!
is so hard. And I always feel like I cant find anyone. I hate that I gotta keep burdening my sister and mom with these favors but I am so grateful for their help. Today my little sister missed classes just to help me out. I feel horrible that I made her miss those classes, but it says so much to me that she would do that for me. Even though she has to crunch and really work hard to catch up she still did it anyways and I super appreciate that. Its a big deal to miss out on her education but she did it anyways. I dont like to encourage it but I really also cant afford to get fired. I love my friends but when it comes down to it it is always family that comes through in the end. Forever grateful and in hopes that one day I can repay the kindness.
Look what I just got in the mail!!! I just LOVE them they’re so pretty and glittery!!!
