Holidays


I can't remember having a significant other to bring in any holidays. Okay, I lied, actually I do remember having a boyfriend on a Christmas or two. I also remember having a boyfriend to bring in the new year with once. ONCE I remember watching the fireworks with a significant other. I have never had a significant other for my birthday or valentines day.

I am not stating this to get sympathy, but to give a little background on this blog. My whole point is that I have grown used to being alone for the holidays. I was fine with that. Now, I must admit that at times it is hard to see my co-workers getting the boquets of roses or flowers for their birthday and valentines day, or maybe even an anniversay.

Well, my boyfriend and I were unable to spend much of yesterday together. He went to a barbeque at his parents house and I went to a barbeque at a friends house. Since his divorce is not yet final, it was best I didn't attend his parents barbeque. His kids were going to be there, and I have not met them, yet.

It was not unusual for me to go off with my kids to a friends house for a barbeque or some other type of gathering. The holiday for me was as all the other holidays in my life have been for years. His reaction was one that I was not expecting. You see when we spend time apart from each other, we have a tendency to get sad.

He was happy to attend his parents barbeque, yet was torn because he wanted to be with me. I encourged him to be there, because I want him to maintain the wonderful relationship he has always had with his parents. It seems in his families eyes, I am the wedge that broke up his marriage. That's to be expected, and I suppose it's no ones business why he really left. That will be revealed when they are open enough to listen to him.

He had a great time with his kids, parents and grandmother. I was happy about that. There were things that delayed his return to my house, but I was so glad to see him when he came home.

Here's to a lifetime of spending the holidays with the man I love.

I had a blast. He said he felt guilty because I used to do things with my friends all the time, but don't as much now that I am with him.

Exactly! I am looking forward to it. I must admit I am not used to having someone around for the holidays so it does not effect me much when we can't spend that time together.

I can't believe that I am so lucky to have such a wonderful man. I am looking forward to this lifetime with him. I only wish everyone else could find a true priceless gem like I have.

    Don't be sad about the odd day apart, be happy about all the days together! Enjoy! Love, it's so wonderful!
We were both sad, but those days are coming to an end. His divorce will be final soon and then we won't have to spent time away during the holidays. We enjoy every moment together.

We act like we celebrate holidays everyday. That's a great suggestion. I guess I'll have to start celebrating our time together from the first day he left his wife, and started seeing me each and every day. Thanks for the advice.
