Last night something quite funny happened. It wasn't funny at the exact moment that it happened but it is now. I was in the living room cleaning up a bit while Blake was in the other room on the computer. I was picking up shoes, dog bones, and books all the while having to dodge two precious dogs who wanted my love and attention. Then it hit me. A scary thought that I had never thought before: "This is what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life?"
I know, sounds depressing right? I thought, "This kind of sucks...where's the passion...where's the romance?" Okay, none of those thoughts crossed my mind but it was slightly depressing for a second to think that everyday I will go to work, run errands, come home, cook, clean and then head to bed to do it all again the next day.
So, I stood up, dropped the shoe I was holding, walked into the computer room and told Blake the thought that came to my mind a few minutes earlier and you want to know what he said? "I know! Isn't it wonderful?!"
It was then that I burst into uncontrollable laughter and I realized...yes, this is wonderful. To have the one person I love the most, the one person who can make me happiest, at home with me and two healthy doggies running around my feet, begging for my love and affection, it is wonderful. If it's what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life then I am blessed. To love and be loved is the greatest gift of all.
