I believe that the ways of showing you love someone is not measured by material things nor by how much money you have spent on it... it's truly the thought that counts behind it that should matter. I may not have gotten a new fancy car, nor glamoury, glittery, expensive things (not saying that it's wrong if you have gotten these - it's just not what I value in life)
My husband got me a Vera Wang perfume which shows me that he listens to me. We were in the store one day and sprayed it on and mentioned that I love the scent but didn't buy it, and this was over 2 months ago! He gave me kitkats because it's my favorite and it's my picker-upper when I have a rough day. He also got me an addition to my Pandora bracelet, a Pandabear charm, to remind me of him because he is my Pandabear. All these were simple things that he put some thought into, which made me feel even more special even from miles apart.
And when I thought that Valentines Day is over, I get flowers sent to me while I'm in training in Mississippi. And it wasn't even Valentines Day anymore... my husband shows me that he doesn't need a day to remind him to treat me good or make me feel special, but he uses that day to still plan and coordinate something.

The Holiday Season is upon us!
This time last year we had our whole house boxed & packed and we were sleeping on our cold Alaskan floor and getting ready to move across the world. Today we're thankful to have this opportunity to decorate and finally settle in our home.
The Air Force & military had become our way of life, meeting new friends & building relationships as we go. We pick up & go when told, but in the end, they are all experiences that not everyone get to have and got that we are truly thankful. We have been extremely blessed.

It's sad to see people, on their way to the top forget who they are and where they came from. It's as if they feel that it is now OK to belittle, judge and insult others, and they have the right to say whatever it is they have to say because of their economic status, riches & wealth.
This is not to say that I don't believe in working hard to get ahead (i.e. Get an education, find a career, etc.), but I see it many times, people work so hard to get to the next level in the expense of hurting people, using people, and in the end, lose their soul to get there.
I can say that because I was that person once, I looked at people around me and wanted the finer things they had, wished I had their life, their money, their riches. I came to America when I was almost 16 years old, and was told that if I worked even harder, all my dreams will come true, so I did. I pushed and pushed and pushed and then I cracked. I listened to everyone else, let them define who I am, let them tell me that I am nothing if I don't have the riches and wealth that they had, but I came to the realization: "What am I gonna do when I get there and all the people that were once beside me who cared for me, aren't because I pushed them away or put them aside as I ventured into the path of 'Greatness".
I used to worry about what those people thought of me, if they thought that my life was worthwhile, or if they thought that my life is good enough... But then I realized that those people do not have one weight on my life, because the people that care about me, are the ones that will add weight of value in my life and not the weight of judgment.
Psalm 49:5-12 Why should I fear when evil days come,when wicked deceivers surround me— those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches? No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them— the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough— so that they should live on forever and not see decay. For all can see that the wise die, that the foolish and the senseless also perish, leaving their wealth to others. Their tombs will remain their houses forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had named lands after themselves. People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish.
I will NEVER forget where I came from and who I am. I might not have the riches that some crave for, or the wealth that some people would even kill for, but I count my riches and my wealth in what I have been blessed by God with.
