Ten years ago today, in an outlet mall parking lot, I met a man. It’s been a a roller coaster ride in every way imaginable. Full disclosure: I love roller coasters!
What’s special? He makes me laugh every day and he knows how important this is to me. He says things just for the purpose of making me laugh and after all this time, we have a few phrases that alway elicit this response.
We both enjoy the wonder and beauty of our planet and the universe beyond. Who else makes a date to watch the solar eclipse in the middle of a busy work day?
Who else makes a magical fire with a picnic on the beach to enjoy the blue moon, knowing I am consumed by the beauty of the full moon?
You know you’re loved when he withstands below zero temperatures because you want to see every moment and every snow sculpture of the Fire and Ice Festival in Breckenridge.
And now, we have created beautiful gardens around our house. He has built creative garden beds, hollowed out logs, and repurposed planters to grow wild flowers, morning glories, herbs & vegetables, and so many flowers that attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and me!
And back to the roller coaster, the feeling of contentment when you are heading back to the station, knowing everything is safe and secure … and it’s always been okay. 😊
