It has been a beautiful day. We had a very nice morning. There was chatting and cooking and cleaning. As I was leaving to see The Good Doctor, she kissed me. Well. This was a serious kiss. I think she meant it. I went in for seconds. She let me in. As I started to leave, I went in for another round. She let me!
The Good Doctor was fine. It was a pretty intense session. We have begun a new therapy method and, today, it was effective. It was the first time I came close to crying at therapy. I felt a little tear forming as I talked. Of course, when I told My Bride, she told me that it’s probably onto cry in therapy sessions. I know that, I just don’t really want to. Whatever. I know it’s going to happen.
I returned home to more cooking. My Bride and I are spending the evening alone as per usual. All of the boys are at their respective parties. So she decided that we need plenty of food to snack on. This “snack” consists of approximately 4 quarts of homemade salsa, 1 quart of homemade pico de gallo, at least 1 quart of homemade guacamole and, finally, a huge homemade 7-layer-dip. Oh yeah…I left off the bacon wrapped water chestnuts. And a “Cowboy quiche.” For the two of us. As a fluffy guy, this is a challenge that even I cannot meet.
As we sat gnawing on our small snack, she looks over at me and drops the bomb. “The year is over and I’m not going to bring any baggage with me. I forgive you.”
The following video pretty much sums up how I felt.
I totally realize that I did nothing. But when she said, “I forgive you” it was as if everything good that could ever happen in my life hit right then.
I can do this all night.
What do they all have in common? Something unexpected. Not only unexpected but incredibly positive.
Today has shown me that even I can have a positive outcome. Even I get blessed by God. And the biggest blessing I have ever received is this second chance at my marriage.
Baby Doll, I love you. I won’t let you down. We WILL get there!
