I have been a bit overwhelmed with work and life lately. I was reflecting with Babushka about this and how I was in a way missing the 'good ol' days'. Going from daily dating to a true life together is so much different...so much more work. It can be scary to open up completely all of who you are with someone else. When other insecurities about jobs and kids and ex-wives come into play a mind can play tricks on oneself. One (like me) can become concerned that the challenges of life life will make the most beautiful woman you have ever met finally wake up and question if this is really what she wants out of life.
One of the best things about our relationship is that during these times of internal strife I can talk to Babushka about them and she does not judge me or immediately jump to a conclusion that I am unhappy with her. Like any man in love, I want my Babushka to have only good, no bad....only joy, no sorrow...only peace, no strife. I can pressure my self into thinking that I have failed if I do not deliver all of these things.
Then I get an email from her that simply reminds me............
- Why I fell in love with her
- Why I am still madly in love with her
- Why I anticipate every kiss from her
- Why her every smile lifts my heart
- Why I look forward to marrying her (once I get the courage to ask)
- Why I am at ease knowing I will die by her side (many, many years from now)
Get Busy Livin' or Get Busy Dyin'
I Love You Babushka :-)
