Six Years nd Counting...

It's (officially) been six years as of today that Muka and I have been together. (: 
We have been through so much in our relationship but I wouldn't change any of it because I know that it's the reason we're able to be where we are now as a couple. And where we are now is beyond words for me to be able to explain. 
I'm usually a "gifts" type of girl. Haha. (I'll be honest) I just love getting gifts for each other and the excitement that comes with it...Muka, on the other hand, has never been too fond of it. Hah. He complains about never knowing what to get and he waits till the last minute so than he just gets frustrated at whatever store he goes to..(boys will be boys hah.)..but, regardless, he has always got me gifts. Because he knows I love it. (: December, January, February, and March he has always said are the "4 dreaded months" because every month kind of involves gift giving. Haha.
  • December=Christmas
  • January= our Anniversary
  • February=Valentines Day
  • March= My birthday
  • and that= poor him...hahaha.
But, now with the mission and all, things do change...we all know that the funds are quite sparse for missionaries. So I haven't even thought twice about receiving anything. Truthfully, knowing he's okay and an email or letter are just perfect for me! And, to my surprise, so far, the past 2 months celebrations (Christmas and our anniversary) have been the best. For Christmas he just sent me a letter and a tape recording, and than we got to talk on the phone and skype. Best gifts on earth!! And than with today being our anniversary, we're not able to speak (because it's not his p-day) but my niece was born last night (: (: (: and that's the best gift the lord could have blessed us with to celebrate all day today. Also, before and after baby was born, Muka's family came to the hospital. It meant a lot. That even though we are not "technically" family (yet!)...they are still there just like real family should be. It meant more to me than they will ever know...that they care so much for Sepa (my little sister) to be there, to go out of their way and bring a lot of food too for everyone, and just to show their love and excitement. It made me feel like a part of Muka was there for the big event, and it meant a lot. (: So, I feel like now, I am seriously okay with not getting gifts..and I am proud of myself for that. Haha. (Don't judge me, respect the honesty I am giving here! hah.) It's the little things that count. Like hand written letters, or random emails just saying I love nd miss you (: Muka's health and wellness and that he's safe and still mine. haha. And that my sister and niece are okay and healthy.

BUT, I still love me some gift giving! haha. Let me just say that i am so excited for Muka to get his little gift that I made for him. It SHOULD get there (to him) today, per the Post Office...but if not, either way, I'm sure he'll love nd appreciate it (: I found this idea off Pinterest nd knew it'd be a great anniversary present idea..especially to send a missionary because it's something they can carry with them in their pocket or back pack where ever they go, and won't take up room if they have to pack up and move for transfers. AND it includes tons of pictures, which they love (: So! Here's just a few pics of the gift! (:

Sorry they're backwards but one side was a thing I loved about him and the other side was a picture

I included pics of both me nd him and his family (:

 SO, I did "51 Things to Love About You"..You just take a deck of cards, and you just list things you love about them and on the other side you put pictures! (: 
they turned out so cute!!!!! Minus my handwriting...haha
But i loved them (: 
and than i wrote a letter, based around a "6" i wrote 
6 random things that reminded me of him
5 moments with him i'll never forget
4 things that he is best at
3 songs that are ours
2 things he should know
and last that he's still the 1, that i'll be waiting for! (:

Muka means the world to me. I'm so grateful for him and his example in my life. I'm grateful that he's let me be a part of this mission with him and I'm looking forward to more anniversary's to come!!! post to come...The Birthing Story of Caleah Lani Bloomfield! (: <3...

Monday Message

I read this today and loved it. It's so true and I think is a good reminder for everyone. I know that I often get so caught up in how busy i get with worldy things of my life that you forget how blessed you are with what you have. Be thankful for everything you have and all the loved ones you are blessed with.
There was a blind girl that hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, “If I could see the world, I’d marry you”. One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, “Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?” The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at him for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying; “Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.” This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what our life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Today before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who cant speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food -Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children – Think of someone who desires children but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep – Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive -Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another -Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – put a smile on your face and thank GOD you’re alive!
 just some of the people i am thankful for..
