The Gift

I often write about J, at least that’s a sure way of not stepping on any long toes. Many times the comments on those posts were “You are so lucky to have someone like J”
….and yes, I am a very lucky clog wearing woman.
I've known J for almost a quarter of a century. We've been living together for nearly 20 years and are blessed with two great kids, my two little espresso’s.

How is it that nearly every morning I wake up beside him seems like the beginning of something special?

It certainly wasn't always that way. We've had our ugly moments. War and peace…Battles of will….tests and trials, very large, large and petty. There were days I felt I was sharing a house with a stranger. There were dark nights when he lay right beside me but I felt totally …alone. Building this thing we share now took work…. blood, sweat, and yes tears. The “romantic” stroll Slow we did last week is a vivid reminder of how very worth the effort it has been.

I just spent time in the company of the greatest gift that ever strolled into my life.
The gift that keeps on giving, irrespective of my moods, without pretence or expectation.
The gift of unconditional love…laughter, warmth, trust, curiosity, comfort, and promise.

Shortly, the gift of the man himself.

My partner and husband J is a remarkable human being.

And yes, I Love him...He loves me and he is mine.

You're a very lucky Coffeelady, and all the luckier for knowing how lucky you are. I only know because I'm a similarly lucky Tiger...

But you'll never attract comments with a post like this. Next time, throw in some hot co-ed lesbians. My emails assure me that they want me, you know.

Coffee, you have put it all remarkably well.
This is the only way that relations can flourish
and be meaningful and rewarding! It is really
worth the work, provided it goes both ways.
