Day 142: Support System

Grill Steak Seafood Restaurant on Hardware Ln.

We have taken a short break from blogging due to an unexpected trip back home to New York. We arrived from our vacation on Friday morning, and we would be in the sky again on Tuesday.

Adonis’ grandmother passed away so we spent most of Monday trying to figure out (1) how we were going to get home (2) how much a last minute flight would cost (3) who would pick us up from the airport once we arrived (4) worrying about whether or not my managers would be understanding and (5) how family back home was dealing.

Fortunately for us, we have a very strong support system that is made up of amazing family members, supportive friends, and very understanding co-workers. Most of our worries were washed away by these people on Monday (and for the duration of our trip home). Friends quickly and without hesitation (from coast to coast) offered their help in anyway possible, family pulled together to ensure we had a ride from the airport and that we had everything we needed for our short stay, and co-workers rushed to ensure I could get back home.

We had been away on vacation for 3 weeks and didn’t have any food in the apartment. There was no point in going food shopping because we were leaving the next morning. So, we decided to take a break from the crazy day and go out for dinner to one of our favorite spots since Adonis was craving a steak.

Side Note:
As we mature in our marriage and begin to make more difficult and life-changing decisions we realize the importance of supporting each other. I think that goes without say in a marriage. However, it’s so nice to have support from the people around us. You hear a lot of people say “I don’t need anyone but myself” or “We don’t need anyone but each other.” These statements are true. You don’t. You don’t need anyone to make your life what you want it to be except yourself. But… it makes life so much easier and sweeter when you know that your family and friends have your back and are willing to do what they can to see you succeed.

If you have an amazing support system, please take the moment to give them a call and give them a random “Thank You” to show your appreciation.
