When I was younger, my mother used to write fairy tales for different women in her life. As I think of those that I love with a desire for them always to have a lovely and loving life, I remember this sometimes….

Once upon a time there was a young lady. She had two beautiful children and she knew that she would one day find love again. And, she did. But this love was messy, but fantastic. She grew and learned that love can be messy, but that does not mean it is not love. When she found the person she wanted to help her wade through her mess, she learned that there is so much more to life than a fairy tale. (Okay so it isn’t Proust but, hey, little is right?)

So, shortly after my 11th wedding anniversary to the hubbs, I begin to wonder if this was what I expected. Honestly, no it isn’t, but that’s okay. Have you ever heard the phrase, “Nothing worth having is easy”? It’s the truth. It has not been easy and it has not been all loves and snuggles. But, its worth fighting for and it is worth continuing to work on it, because there is no one I truly like more in this world. THAT is what love is about.

I love you man!!
