Meet the love of my life, Joe. He’s a quiet kind of guy and when he says something you perk up your ears and listen. He’s one of the most creative souls on the planet. Aside from his family, projects are his passion. From creating earrings for nurses and the medical community (He is a Nurse himself) to making amazing homemade cheeses (Romano and Parmesan) to creating his own cheese press instead of purchasing one to some of the most creative birthday gifts a wife could imagine (the wife, me, has been super impressed over the years). To say that I believe he is an amazing person and partner is an understatement. He is my grounding in life.
When I met Joe, I was smitten with him……after awhile. Initially all I could see were some goofy things that l laugh at now. As I grew more in love, I became more heart and less mind. As time progressed, I wondered how would I ever know if he was ‘the one for me’. He went away for a weekend and I realized that I didn’t need him so much as I just plain loved being around him and when he wasn’t around I missed him terribly. I loved the fun we shared, the companionship we shared, the beautiful friend aspect of our relationship, the wonderful love part of everything. He was kind and gentle and loving. By the time he arrived home that Sunday I was not the same girl he had left on Friday night. I had released my resistance to allowing love and happiness in a relationship and I realized I was madly, deeply in love. I had been given the opportunity to be in my own space and weigh it all out and find out what my heart was saying without any distraction. It’s 31 years later and I am so profoundly grateful that I listened to my heart and what it revealed to me that brought me happiness and joy.
Everything has its ups and downs especially when you are with someone 31 years, however, I always come back to what I discovered that weekend and the love we share. As my focus shifts off of what is not working for me at the moment, to what I do love and what does make me happy about ‘us’, the down shifts back to an up. That’s one of the reasons I encourage you to recognize what brings you happiness and joy. It’s one day at a time one moment at a time one step at a time. I didn’t have it all figured out, I just kept living each day and listening. I’m glad I did.
