My bright and shiny day



These have been themes for me for a couple of days now.  For example, I woke up this morning, not happy, not sad.  Just facing the day, with a mental review of what needs to be done.  Work, groceries, stop by the pet store for cat food.  Just a regular evening of errands.

I walked into my office and powered everything up and checked my phone.  Its my little morning ritual.  I missed a call from the hubs.  I swear, I felt like Meg Ryan in You Got Mail.  So sue me-its a favorite.  Anyway, I didn't waste time checking the voice mail I just called him back right away.  

He was just letting me know he is on his way home.  Yeah!

My day went from drab and dreary to bright and shiny.  In the blink of an eye.

I know that I have been married for twenty years.  But I think that as time passes and you spend it with that one special someone you maybe take the little things for granted.  Like going to bed with someone.  (Get your mind out of the gutter.)  I mean, just getting into bed at the end of the day and having that persons breathing be the last thing you hear.  I have missed that.

So this post goes out to all my married friends, even the ones who are in a sour place right now.  Push through it, because tomorrow really can be a bright and shiny new day.

Sweet. Today, I love my husband a whole lot. Yesterday, not so much. Tomorrow, more than today (hopefully).

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

I've been married 25 years. I go through cycles. He's Prince Charming and then, he's a troll and I can't stand the sight of him.

I push through it for this reason: I don't have a lot of friends. I don't know why. People tend to misjudge me - assume I'm things I'm not and then treat me as if I am. It happens all the time and EVEN with my own family.

He is the only person who's never done that to me. When I remember that, suddenly the sun shines on my Prince Charming again.
