To My Person-The Thank Yous That Are Easily Forgotten

To My Person-The Thank Yous That Are Easily Forgotten

It's simple to thank you for the big things, but some little things are forgotten and underappreciated!

While I could write thousands of sappy words describing what you mean to me, I figured you get that enough. This isn't the classic love letter and I am not going to spend this article writing about how amazing you are (as much as I easily could), but instead, I am going to go in a different direction. I could thank you for all that you do for me, for always supporting me, picking me up when I'm down, and so much more, but that's what all these types of articles are about. While we both know our relationship is one of a kind, I'm always seeing the same types of articles. So instead, I'd like to thank you for the things no one remembers to thank their boyfriend for.

Thank you for always acting like a child with me even though this is most likely because we both have no idea how to adult correctly (mostly me).

Thank you for taking a million pictures with me and then hating all of them with me because neither one of us are photogenic.

Thank you for telling me how it is and not sugar coating things, especially when I need it most.

Thank you for pretending to be into my TV shows (even though most times you actually are and won't admit it).

Thank you for not caring that I take up the whole bed and that this will never change.

Thank you for being proud of me when I eat more than you do.

Thank you for driving basically everywhere because I'm usually too lazy or just don't want to.

Thank you for ordering extra appetizers and blue cheese because you know I'll eat it even when I say I won't.

Thank you for shopping with me and somehow dealing with it.

Thank you for playing with my hair and then telling me how knotty it is and that I need to shower; I appreciate the honesty and usually need it.

Thank you for always letting me choose where we eat even when I say I don't want to.

Thank you for letting me steal all of your clothes and knowing you're not getting them back even when I promise to return them.

Thank you for always being willing to get fries and milkshakes with me even though we're both constantly saying we need to go to the gym more (and by that I mean you go every day and I go once a month).

Thank you for dealing with my constant shedding and dealing with finding strays of my hair on everything you own.

Thank you for giving me attitude back when I give you attitude.

Thank you for being my biggest fan, and I am yours.

Lastly, thank you for being you and for making me who I truly am. There are infinite things I could thank you for, but all of these little things are very underappreciated.

6. They know what it is like to be woken up at 2 a.m. because someone wet their bed... mom training.

17. They know how to hide their favorites in life really well... so if they choose to date you they are basically saying you are their favorite and that is a big deal to them.

18. They have learned how to eat unhealthy food every day for a whole summer and stay in shape... or try to at least.

19. They also are obviously not a diva when it comes to material needs...they went a whole summer without even air conditioning and never complained.

21. They love God, living for Him, and have already made a difference in many children's lives... they are the real MVPS.

If you are still looking for a place to work this summer and love adventure, Jesus, and children, apply for Camp Crestridge for Girls; they still have many positions available. I'll be there so you should too!

If you are a boy apply for Camp Ridgecrest for Boys!

The Truth: About Domestic Violence

You can survive this.


Let me tell you a story about a girl who has a history with domestic violence, not only as a victim but as the perpetrator. Now, this girl is not proud of what she's done but the stories a little more complicated than she would like to admit. When the girl was fifteen she was with someone she loved more than anything in the world there was a dark side to this love, secrecy not only from each partner but from the world and this angered her so one day to be particular the first day of junior year in front an auditorium full of her peers slapped her beloved, whether this was from pain or anger it was wrong from start to finish.

Eventually, they broke up she found a man who lives close to her and seemed to be just as submissive as she had dreamed he would be. It seems like a perfect match, the type of personality with the relaxed go with the flow type of man but soon the love turned sour. She became controlling out of fear of abandonment, this relationship was her world and everybody knew it and most of the relationship was allegedly smooth sailing with the slight undertone of emotional abuse coming from her of course because she didn't know anything better. Then the day came where things ended, where things took a violent turn in front of witnesses like never before.

Grabbed by the throat, to shut her up was his goal but all it did this make her scream louder and then he pushed, pushed her right down the stairs, kicked her out and slam the door in her face. She loved him how could he do this to her? She asked herself what she had done wrong, was she not pretty enough, not kind enough and just plain not enough for the love of her life. Things don't stop here after the relationship ended, she went on a wild spree trying to find solace in the arms of another, with men who manhandled her who saw her as no more than an object.

But how could she blame them when that's all she saw herself as, she had been told over and over that should only be wanted for her body and she thought that they were right for years and it tore her apart and honestly a lot of things were sour from the start but she didn't care, she deserved this she thought. By age 18 she entered the relationship that set her off, things would never be the same, he belittled her every day for a year and a half after she had devoted herself to him almost immediately but she did not see his faults but her family sure did. This thankfully ended but the story doesn't end here. She was later sexually assaulted while unconscious on two separate occasions and she felt this would never end but here she stands strong as ever with all of it behind her and a story to tell.
