Wow, can you believe that...

I don't blog much anymore.  Life has a way of catching up with you - for better or worse - and other issues (mainly life) become the priority.

I started this blog around five years ago, for several reasons, and through the years it has taken many forms.  Unfortunately right now, it has taken on the "dormant" form as I mentioned earlier life has a way of taking over and becoming busy but as My Carlo says, it is important to write and get that creative side out!

Tonight, after a long day and very busy week we decided to have Indian food!  Great night for it, a non-typical cool May night, rainy and very overcast.  After dinner, we happened across some journals that Carlo wrote so many years ago when we first met... 2008...  Wow, that was a long time ago.  For a few hours we read about the up's and down's, the good and bad, the funny and sad and sometimes hard things to hear.  It was an interesting journey to relive the past in that way, through words and drawings, but also very therapeutic.  Makes your really appreciate all you have been through with a person, and to realize that sometimes all that struggle is worth it.  Yea, the struggle...  I am so fortunate to have him in my life, he stood by me when the chips were down, when the world had turned against me, when I had no one...  He was there...  His smile, his laugh, even when I was a jerk. What really struck me about this trip down memory lane is that we both have a great deal of love for each other, more like I adore him and he tolerates me! HA!  It really brings home the words:

"you brought me sunshine when I only saw rain, you brought me laughter when I only felt pain"

That is my Carlo and thanks to him, I only feel happiness,  My life and one day, my husband if he will have me.  Thank you for sticking by me all these years, thank you for putting up with me, and thank you for being the most perfect you.
