For everything that you do for me, I want you to know I'm thankful.

11 Things I Need To Thank My Boyfriend For

After you are in the dating game for a while, you tend to get discouraged or burnt out when things continue to not work out. However, what I've begun to realize is that relationships that don't work out help you appreciate the good ones that much more. Relationships are so much fun when you actually find a good guy, ladies. So here are 11 things that I need to thank my good guy for.

1. For being a gentleman.

He constantly is treating me like a princess. He takes me out, shows me off, and makes sure that I am never left wanting something. He continuously spoils me.

2. For praying with me.

He will just stop in the middle of whatever we are doing or talking about and ask if we can pray together. It's one of my favorite things because it shows me that's he has his heart in the right place and wants God in the center of our relationship.

3. For challenging me.

He constantly broadens my perspective on everyday things and challenges me to be more open-minded and gracious.

4. For showing me God's grace and patience.

This poor boy, y'all. I made him wait 6 months before I finally said yes to being his girlfriend, and there has never been a moment that I have regretted that decision. Thank you for sticking around and waiting for me.

5. For realizing my worth.

For those of you who know me, know that I value worth so much. It's something I'm incredibly passionate about because I have seen and experienced the effects that not knowing or seeing your worth can have. He not only sees my worth in the Lord - he values and treasures it.

6. For showing me off.

He never makes me feel unwanted or undesired. Whether it be showing me off to his friends and family or just do little things to make me feel special, he always shows me that he cares.

7. For being a man of God.

He is such a sweet man of the Lord. He'll pray with me, lead me in the Word, and just share his heart with me. This trait is something that I value a lot, so I never have to worry about him meeting that expectation

8. For always supporting me.

He supports me in everything that I do. He is always encouraging me, and he makes me feel like I can accomplish anything that I set my mind to.

9. For always cheering me up.

Even if I'm in the worst of moods, he always finds a way to make me laugh or smile. He's so silly, that it's hard to be in a bad mood around him.

10. For doing more than enough for me.

Whether it's driving an hour and 45 minutes almost every weekend to come see me, surprising me to come watch me sing at church, or the little things he does to show me he cares, he always does more than enough for me.

11. For being everything that I didn't know I needed.

I've known him for about 7 or so years now, and we were friends for about 6 and a half years of that time. I never thought that this would come out of it. This is one of those relationships that you just don't see coming, but you're sure glad it did.

So as you can see, there are tons of things that I can thank you for, but the one thing I thank you for the most s for being you.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
