Appreciation for accommodation, then alteration

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.  🙂

    We celebrated 51 years of marriage yesterday, Frank and I, and I’ll let you in on the secret: EXACTLY WHAT YOU WROTE right here.
    I’m essentially serious too, and that has its virtues. But for the long run, your sweetie’s got what it takes!
    Lucky you — lucky him!
