10 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 8 - Phil

Today I am thankful for Phil.

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. it is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." ~ Ann Landers

That quote by Ann Landers sums up my relationship with Phil oh so well. We've been through a lot together. We've been through big things like the loss of a parent, dealing with my diagnosis and on-going treatment of RA, and career changes, and we've been through smaller things like my hip surgery and the day-to-day challenges of life.  I'm glad that no matter what life throws our way, I've got a strong partner by my side to help me get through it all. He's my best friend, confidant, and he still gives me butterflies. 



I waited a long time for the right person to come into my life.  Far longer than many of my friends and family members. But Phil was worth the wait. 

What are you thankful for today?

I'm thankful that you were finally thankful for Phil because I was wondering when you'd get around to him! You have a gem there and so does he. I love your quote -- I copied it and am sending to Rick. It fits us to a tee!

That is a perfect quote and I pray you will feel "butterlies" until death do you part!

I'm so thankful that you found Phil! It gives this perpetually single girl hope as I enter the last year of my 20s. :)

Today, I'm thankful for a sweet dog to snuggle with at night! He makes everything so much better. :)

I love this post. I am so happy you found Phil! So so so happy! I am learning, as I get older, that not every married couple has the gift of friendship. It is so important to have a partner in life that you truly enjoy, and can be okay with 'everyday life' with them.

Love you guys!
