You make it all better [Oct. 6th, 2008|09:38 pm]
Lanette
[Current Mood |lovedblessed]

He made me tea with honey. He cuddles me. He told me that he can't imagine what it would be like to spend life with someone who isn't me and he's just so happy to have a great partner and that he doesn't have to worry about that.

Craig is just so easy to trust. He's there. He is the one who emails me, who reaches out, who wants to spend time with me. It sounds so retarded to say this, but while I feel nothing even close to friendship for him, Craig really is a true friend to me as well as the man I love, and that makes me lucky. I'm so sick tonight, but he's making it so much better just by being him. He makes me want to be a little more considerate and soft.

Sorry if I just made anyone throw up in their mouth a little. Just wanted to share my good fortune.

No throw up. Just smiles and a tear.
:)
Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to have Matt.
He's all of that to me as well.

I'm so glad that in this time of fly-by-night relationships that some people are still not only lucky enough to experience a pure, unselfish love... but some are also smart enough to see how lucky they are.

I'm so glad that this relationship is so good for you.
*hug*

We are very lucky to have that. It's easy to get lost in the day to day chores and realize just how much difference having love makes. How much difference having a great partner you can count on makes. *hugs*

You are so lucky to have someone like that in your life Lanette. Hold on to this one! You deserve to have happiness. Take care.

Re: I wish I had that....

Thank you Len. I hope you find it. The thing about love that is wonderful is that it only has to work out once to be worth all of the times it didn't.

Thanks! I need a love icon, huh? :) I woke up feeling better today, mostly because of his spoiling.

You would have cracked up last night, since I know you've seen Craig cook. It did take him 5 minutes to make tea. ;) Isn't that cute! Just don't let the man loose with grilled cheese and canned soup or it could be 2 hours.

All I gotta say is after two freaking hours that better be the best damn can of campbell's I ever tasted! lol At least he makes the effort though. That's what's important unless you're cranky and hungry and then to hell with the effort just gimme some freakin' soup already!

He is a true softie inside, which makes it more ok. I do have trouble with his Republicanness at times, but we agree on more than we disagree. His love of kids and animals really shows through despite his more conservative beliefs. However, if we have a gay kid he's gonna be at their wedding or I'll beat him. ;)

If you could see Craig with his cat, you'd think, no way that guy's a Republican! He was joking today that Palin would understand his special needs child while Midnight was licking the electrical outlets. We both laughed.

Craig is a true gentleman. He isn't one of those arrogant elitist Republicans who hates others, so I guess his more moderate stance makes it not such a big deal to me. Besides, I cancel out his vote. ;)

Thank you! I feel very lucky to have found such love, and to be with him for more than 2 years and still feel that excitement is really wonderful.

How did the 3 liberal ladies of our family end up with men who are perfect for us, even though they are conservative? We all go lucky. I swear, if I'm lucky enough to have a little boy with Lan I'm going to do my best to make him gay, just because Lan is so uptight about that.

I told Craig that if we have a gay child he's going to their big gay wedding or I'll beat him.
