No Pain, No Gain? Maybe Not Always…..

I was sitting in the kitchen with Dan this morning, sipping coffee. He looked at me and said, “Have we been together all week?” I couldn’t remember. We had to back track each day to actually get to the realization that we HAD been together 24/7 for a week, between his house, my house, and my sisters house.

I looked at him and said, “This is not what I expected! I expected to meet someone I’d want to spend 2 or 3 days a week with, and go on with my life as it was. And I didn’t even get sick of you!” He laughed, and said, “I know, it’s better than I ever imagined it could be. We never got on each other’s nerves at all.”

He went home this morning. He had stuff to do, his mother to check in on. I had the girls coming over, so I had some things to do. But we’ve been talking all day. I miss him when he’s not here. He’ll be here in the morning and we’ll go to lunch with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew and his wife when they stop on the way to the airport.

I’ve been asking the universe, since I left my ex-husband, to let me know the love of a good man before I die. On that path, I fell in love with the wrong man, one who would teach me another hard but valuable lesson. But now….I think I get to learn some easy lessons. I guess I’ve asked for that a lot too. For lessons that are not so hard. Dan said to me that he’s never learned anything from a good day, and I agreed with him. Until now. We are both rethinking that, because we learn from each other and there’s no pain at all involved. It’s amazing. And wonderful.

Love and light to all.

  1. I have to admit, the drama was more interesting. Never knowing which way you were leaning was kind of fun. I use to bet with one of my friends which way you would fall. He was right more often than I was, but only by one. So I still have a chance to get even. All you have to do is dump Dandude and call Simple Simon. Do this and I get my dollar back, Simon gets his obsession fix, your blog gets more interesting, and Dandude will be saying WTF right along with you. lol You have to admit, my version is much more interesting. We could make it a 3 out of 5 question bet. What are the odds you could get Ddude back before SimpleS screws the pooch again? Will you choose kindness or weakness for a partner? Do either one of these guys have any balls? What’s love got to do with it? Does a guy from Boston have what it takes to keep you interested for more than a few weeks? These are the questions your readers want, or need answered. With felonious intent in my heart, 2020.

  2. Yes, we can learn from a good day. We can learn that we don’t want to go back to the drama and stress that drain our energy and distract us from growing. You’ve paid your dues and learned the hard lessons. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy real love.
