I had a whirlwind of a day today. And I’ll spare you all the details of everything that occurred (basically it was just a busy day at work coupled with a misunderstanding after work), but by the time I got home this evening it was late, and I was tired, irritated, and hungry. Not a good combination of sensations at all.
My husband was already in the house when I arrived, and he could easily tell that I was both crabby and upset. And he let me have my space – but then checked in on me after a small amount of time had passed. He let me vent my frustrations – but then nudged me to get over it all once I had shared them. He gave me hugs – but equally importantly he joked with me, and played with me, and made me laugh and smile.
I could have spent the entire evening just pissed off. I could have spent a lot of time tonight alternating between stewing and fretting. But in large part due to my husband, right now I’m smiling, and letting go of things as best I can, and focusing on the gratitude I feel to have such a wonderful man in my life. (And to have such a wonderful life in general.)
So goodnight everyone, I’m off. I want to spend the remainder of my evening with my sweetie. 🙂
