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.
