No teas today, just sappy post time, because I am squishy and very very loved.
And tomorrow is Thanksgiving, so why not?
Last week, I had a moment with my fiance that I consider to be a significant indicator of the strength of our relationship, a “defining moment” if you will.
We had a spat over something that wasn’t particularly significant but my crazy brain got a hold of the situation and off I went.
Later, once I had calmed down, I felt really bad about it, like I do.
In a fit of misguided sorrow, I turned to my fiance and said: “Wouldn’t you be happier with someone less broken?”
The concept of being happier with someone else was so absurd to him that he just laughed.
This would seem like a no-brainer, because we’re getting married so of course he would not be happier elsewhere. But it is one thing to know it and another entirely to have it confirmed so blatantly.
I feel very loved, and very grateful, and I’ll probably be telling this story for years to come.
