Not many people outside my family circle "GET ME" so to speak. I love fiercely and will fight to the death to protect one of my own. I am often blunt...my daughters would say ALWAYS blunt..nevertheless, you never need to doubt where you stand with me. I care deeply, I love deeply, I give without wanting in return, I am passionate about my husband of 38 yrs and can not dream of life without him. Which brings out the real reason for this post. Two friends of mine lost their husbands recently..one as recent as Sat. morning. Neither husband had been sick but died suddenly of a heart attack and both wives were going about their regular routine when they FOUND Robert and Wayne...already in the arms of Jesus.
My dear friends, this hits too close to home. Some of you have even grieved the loss of a mate...your soul mate...the love of your life. I want to say to young couples especially young wives...please, please, please, learn to pick your battles, love your husband warts and all, and learn to live "HAPPY". By that I mean, learn to live as the apostle Paul said.."Content in whatever state I am in"
Here is a picture of #1 Husband and I, 2 yrs ago at the beach on a family vacation in October. He gets me...at least most of the time but I have to say he gets me in the areas that really matter. He understands my rhythm of life, my routines, my need for rest when everyone else is gearing up for round TWO. #1 is content to have me sit beside him in my chair and quilt while we watch our "shows" like tow old codgers. He know how I like my eggs cooked and how many Splendas I use in my coffee (well sometimes he forgets but Most of the time he remembers!). He understands my need for "alone" time but it still drives him crazy that I leave the tops off EVERYTHING.
My daughters have become my best and truest friends...two of a handful of people I truly TRUST! Life does that to you unfortunately. You think you know someone and then they betray your trust. I had that happen in the last 3 yrs. Two friends of mine betrayed my trust and I'm still reeling from it's effects. One friendship had lasted 14 yrs...I learned that for some the need for power and position outweighs a friendship. The following pictures are of people who not only Get ME but I GET THEM and besides loving them...I TRUST THEM with my heart and soul.
