I posted yesterday about Love & Marriage. Sharing your life with another person is amazing. It’s an incredible gift. It’s comforting. It’s fun and exciting.
It’s also challenging. But the most rewarding things in life come from challenges.
Billy and I are best friends. We spend a lot of time together and wouldn’t want it any other way. There are times when our wants and needs are in sync and other times when we can barely speak without frustrating each other. It’s part of the deal.
He keeps things light. I highlight meaningful moments. We enhance each other. We take care of each other. We learn from each other. We both fold the laundry. We both clean the dishes. And we always take turns driving on road trips.
A few days ago, I left the room for a few minutes while my laptop was running. I came back to find virtual love notes from Billy in every open window on my computer.
And on my iPhone. And a handwritten note, too.
And I was reminded why I fell in love with him. And how I love him more every day. And how I should pay a lot more attention to him than I do to my laptop.
I’ve posted about Billy many times. He makes me laugh every day. If we’re arguing or there’s a negative tone occurring between us, he’s sure to lighten the situation.
Sometimes his randomness makes me laugh for no reason at all.
Like last night as I was watching Bachelor Brad hand out his final rose and Billy exclaimed,
“Hey Bird! Scientists are trying to clone the woolly mammoth!”
Then there’s the photo he emailed me a few days ago. It speaks for itself.
Billy really lives life. He doesn’t worry about what other people think, and at the same time he’s the most thoughtful, caring person I know.
What’s one thing about your significant other that you value?
I value Billy’s humor, intelligence, affection, positive attitude, etc.
If you’re not in a relationship, what’s one characteristic you are attracted to in another person?
Have you ever chased goats in the nude?
If so, I’ll give you Billy’s email address so y’all can bond.
