My spouse has always traveled during the 30 plus years we have been married, we joke how we have been married for 30- together for 16....as it is pretty true! I always miss him when he is gone, whether it is for 3 weeks in asia, or 3 days in Santa Monica, Ca. It always feels the same...like a piece of my heart has been torn away. I count the days until he returns, altho dont get the impression that Im not independent!! I truly am...and that is probably why this relationship works for us, lots of trust, lots of love.
So this week, I have the good fortune to talk live on the phone with a OP friend I have made over the last year or so, and we talked and talked...and I realized that she would give her eye teeth to have what I have as far as a loving man to spend life with. How lucky I am! The more I thought about how she has managed to somehow escape meeting the "right "person in her life as of yet, how much energy and hope she lives for each day wanting acknowlegement and maybe just a nice relationship in her life---well I realized that I want to be sure that my husband really knows in all the ways possible that he is the most important and most wonderful person in my life. I cannot imagine not having him in my life, each day... and as I get older - I am witnessing more life events that take someone suddenly away . And I want to know if anything ever happens to he or I- that I gave it one million percent, and nothing less...that he feels special each and everyday.
I cannot give this friend the answers of how to find love, to get someone to notice you, to see the amazing person she most likely is, and to be friends, or lovers, or to fall in love, you cannot wrap that up like a gift, it just happens. Some never experience it, always the illusive romantic dream. I live my dream , I am going to be sure- darned sure - that my man knows he is my heart, my rainbow, my forever person.
I will wish my friend the best I can, that if she doesn't only gaze in one direction, the obvious direction.....the direction she has been limited to for some time now, that she just might see someone that has been gazing at her for some time now....and just didnt realize it. there is someone out there for each of us,
I am one very lucky woman to have the man I married. Im just sayin.....
