My story begins in High School. Yes, I married my high school sweetheart! And, I have been married to him for 20 years this September. It has been an amazing 20 year whirlwind. We laughed much more than we cried, we loved more than we thought would ever be possible, and we are happy and content. That is true love.
He really is a special man, for so many reasons. But, I'm only going to share these few.
He buys me sushi just because, and he supports my Hello Kitty habit, and my love of expensive purses.
He told me once that he rushes home every day, just to see me. I said "really?" He said "yes. even if you are bad, or....especially when your bad!" Now, I have to explain. When he says "bad", he means stuff like, "um. I spent all of my money on art supplies", or "guess what? I repainted the living room!!". Perhaps even "I went out to the "junque" stores today, and I bought all new vintage furniture!". That is what he's talking about. And, these little "bad" things that I do actually amuse him, bring a smile to his face, not anger. So I hear, a lot of men would be really mad about these things, but not mine. I am very lucky.
Then, we had children. 2 boys, Large is 14 and Small is 11. That is when we knew that kind of love that you only feel when you are holding this beautiful miracle. And my boys are just like their father when it comes to me. They say I am the "princess", because I am the only girl. Even the dog and cat are boys!! So, they were raised with a father who is so good to me, so they are just as good to me. They never forget to kiss me goodnight, or tell me they love me every single day, no matter who is there, or where they are. When I am "bad" and do crazy things, their favorite thing to say is "Oh Mama!", like it's OK. We expected it! And it's fine! And yes, they actually call me Mama.
