I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. – Roy Croft
I guess I am luck. Nah, no guessing – I know I am lucky. I have one love who I have grown up with – who I have a crazy life with – who I been on a crazy rollercoaster of a ride with for 22+ years. And we still are talking to each other – we still love each other – and we can still laugh when we feel like life has us backed into a corner. And we still know what the other needs even if they don’t know it at the time.
Then I have another love. Another love who brings me to balance, who adds so much to my life that I often wonder how I got this far without it. While we have had quite a year together – ups, downs, communication breakdowns – coming back together was like coming back home after a long stressful trip. The trip was necessary but being back home feels so much better.
I am beyond loved – beyond lucky – and beyond thankful for what I have. I can only hope they both know how much I love them – how much they each add to my life – and how much I enjoy growing with them and learning about myself. I can only hope I bring as much to them as they do to me.
I love you, G – you whacky kilted guy with comics all over the bedroom, who makes up theme songs for the pets that you sing to them, and who rocks as a Dad. Thank you for taking this journey in life with me.
I love you, SB – my Daddy – my friend – the man who can make me cry with a beating, then can tuck me into bed with kisses on the forehead as I’m curled up against you. Thank you for sharing your life and who you are with me.
