Getting Cocky

“Last night you did something you haven’t done in a long time. You were standing by the door talking to the kids and you looked over and subtlety winked at me. My heart skipped a beat. I had a bit of puppy love.”
-My Bride

Yeah, that was said today. There seems to be new developments on a daily basis now. A look here, a touch there, a kiss WITH a look.

Things are looking up. They’re looking up in a major way.

When the crap hit the fan on that fateful September day when she disclosed her distaste for sexual relations I began growing a beard. 2 months went by. My Bride finally asked when would shave it. “As soon as I think we have made significant progress in our marriage” was my answer.

Today I shaved. She was floored when she saw it. As we finished an errand, she finally asked, “Why did you shave?” I got to tell her that I thought we had made significant progress.

We shared a smile. That was when she told me of my enduring wink.

THINGS I HAVE LEARNED
• Be nice- good things follow
• Be kind- it might come back to you
• Make an attempt- the favor will be returned

As always, I suggest that others already know these things. I didn’t. The Good Doctor tells me that’s a function of my sex addiction. I get so self-absorbed, or have been all my life, those things were never learned. In my case they were also never taught.

Abstinence Day 24

At the risk of getting cocky: BRING IT ON WORLD, WE GONNA KICK YO ASS!

    Isn’t it ridiculous how we pursue other women when all the time the real joy is in the wife we have? I am often amazed at my own foolishness. The real joy in marriage is when the lady i have loved for many years still wants me.

    That is the real stuff.

    it’s so sweet how she can make you so happy. I’m not an overly romantic guy, but that is sweet.

    One thing I’ve notice too is that you have stopped complaining about not getting sex. This is a very good sign. Sex is wonderful servant and a terrible master. You are subjugating sex with you wife to love for your wife and (one of the best kept secrets out there) you will find that you have never enjoyed sex more than when you are loving your wife well.

    It’s like God knew what he was doing.

    As a bearded man myself, I’m sorry to see your beard go. That said, keep your lovely lady happy. If she prefers no beard, then no beard it is. -Chip
