Yesterday was a full on bucket of suck. I won’t bore you with details. However, something happened last night to turn it all around. I was not feeling good. I was in my recliner, and T came out of the bedroom (he was going to go to bed). He decided that he just wanted to sit out here with me, knowing how awful I was feeling. He didn’t want me to be alone.
We sat in the dark, in silence. Once in awhile, one of us would say something. It was lighthearted conversation, nothing too heavy. For 3 hours, he just sat here with me. When I mentioned that I was sleepy, we went to bed. I thanked him for just…. being. He hugged me and said, “Just being by you is so much better than being by myself. I’m sorry you’re not feeling well. I hope you can get some good sleep.” He kissed my forehead, and off to sleep I went. Content. Happy. Full heart and soul.
Today, I am in a much better mood. I got some sleep. I’m going to pack lunches for M and I, and make some chicken salad for T to have for lunch. I’m also going to throw something in the crockpot for dinner tonight.
I am a fortunate woman. My life with T has not been easy. But the love we share is strong. It’s amazing, really. And I was reminded of that last night. I am grateful.
I hope your day is filled with love, and goodness.
Until next time.. xo
