My Sweetie Makes Me Smile



I love my Bud.  Totally, completely, without any reservation.  I am lucky that  way.  And he tells me every day "I love you more" whenever I say "I love you".  Sappy, sickly sweet; I don't care.  I appreciate all he does, every smile, seeing those darn dimples that got me on our first date.  I am so grateful we found each other, but sad we didn't meet earlier in our lives.  But I'll take the next 40 years or so with him.  

So ladies, please know there are good men out there.  They may be hard to find--usually cause they're working long hours, helping others, and going home to an empty house.  The trick is to bump into them somehow, somewhere.  It's not easy.  So even though Bud and I wish we could have met years before we did, we know we're blessed that we met at all, and appreciate what we have every day.  It's not easy, and communication is always always an issue.  But knowing neither one of us is going anywhere keeps us firmly together.  A healthy relationship isn't all bliss and wonderful times spent attached at the hip.  A healthy relationship involves passionate discussions, saying "I messed up and I'm sorry", and spending time doing things without the other.  

But--in this picture, Bud and I did something together:  a zip line in Las Vegas on Fremont Street.  Needless to say, I was terrified, Bud was all casual and not even a tiny bit apprehensive.  He's that kind of guy.  We did the zip line twice.  This picture is after the first time, when we got to the other side and I was flush with the fact that I survived the trip.  I expect we'll be doing more of these things in the future, and I hope we have lots of pictures to remember each terrifying, thrilling moment.

  1. You both looks so happy...or maybe that's just euphoria from having survived the zip line...lol. You're totally right, in a relationship, communication is vital. :)

  2. You guys are so cute :-) I agree, communication is challenging BUT the most important thing! Keeping the lines of communication open is vital to a happy relationship. :-)

    1. Yes, I have discovered that men and women will never understand each other. I keep thinking we'll figure it out, but it never happens. We just think too differently about stuff!

  3. I really want to try a zip line ride one day. It looks like such fun.

    You are right. Good men are out there and I would say that even if you would have liked to have connected with Bud earlier, you probably met at exactly the right time for both of you to recognise that you are right together.

    My hubby and I realised that there were a number of times when we might have met before we actually did, but i think I needed the lessons that life was going to teach me before I found my soul mate.

    I can see all the love and happiness you share in your eyes and it is wonderful

    1. Thanks Mynx! I don't know what I would do without Bud. He's been my rock these last few months and is certainly trying to keep me cheery.
