Known

M is finally having a long overdue surgery in two weeks. His pre-surgery physical is today, and last night, the thought of the physical today made the looming surgery very real, all the feelings about the surgery coming to the surface. 
We talked quite a lot about it all, and the last of the conversation went like this:

M: You know, it’s going to crush me if this doesn’t work.

Me: I do know. I’ll be here, either way, whether it works or not. You know that?

M: I do. It’s the only thing I do KNOW.

That’s our foundation, our core. 

He KNOWS.

I KNOW.

We communicate openly and honestly, express ourselves freely, in both words and actions. There are fewer misfires and there’s discussion so that we learn from our mistakes. We let go and forgive. Our eyes are open wide; we see the other.

I’m so grateful. Beyond grateful; it’s safe, it’s HOME.

Everything else is a happy, amazing addition. 

THE END.

  1. Best line and so full of honest to goodness truth : it’s safe, it’s HOME. No place I’d rather be and so glad you both are there. Love you woman! Will be sending lots and lots of healing energy your way.

  2. This is, by far, the best description of love and marriage: Partnership. Surprisingly I found that for the first time in my life with Waco. It’s nice. Thanks for sharing this.

    • Thank you, Kevin! It is a partnership, or should be, at least in my humble opinion. I’m so happy you did!

      I had it for a long time before I figured out how to truly see what I had. Well, we did. But we do. It is nice.

      • My first marriage was not and I had no idea how much better it can be – and Waco and I aren’t even married. Trust, mutual respect, mutual support all go hand in hand and it’s wonderful. I’m glad you found it as well.
