I'll admit it...

living with me is not always easy
~~
in fact
I believe it takes a saint
~~
and
this saint
my saint
my lover and best friend
my air when I can't breathe
my legs when I can't bear my own weight
my only hope when my dreams are shattered
my pillow when everything in life feels as hard as rock
my biggest fan even when I'm sitting quietly reading a book
my right hand when my left hand has a mind of its own
my voice when biting my tongue is a better option for me
turns
47
today
~~
wow
47
years old
and
I have been lucky enough to be with this saint 29 years
~~
don't get me wrong
does he ever do anything that irritates the crap out of me
?
sure he does
but
does all his good far outweigh any of his bad
?
more than I could ever put into words
~~
happy birthday sweetie
I love you so very much

  26. My dear Beth,

    I am so happy for you and your saint, that you have had 29 years of joy together, interspersed, of course, with some sadness, I'm sure but I can see that the love is still there. Blessings and 29 more years, at the very least.
