Because He Loves Me...

I've been under a little bit of stress this last week - as those of you who read daily are surely aware of. When something happens I tend to get very angry, very fast and stay that way for very long. But yesterday...well, I was quite honestly devastated by some circumstances and just about curled up in to a ball to cry when my Knight in Shining Armour came to rescue me.

Again.

Frank and I have been together for twenty years. No one thought we could make it that long and really, the first 3-5 years were rocky but then we hit our stride and I love him more and more each and every day.

As I was lying on the bed yesterday like a zombie, he came and laid down next to me and reminded me all of the ways that I am "okay" and that the people who are doing these heinous, back-stabbing things are really the ones that are not okay. They do things out of meanness. They create drama because they are bored and that by hurting others, it keeps the focus off of them and their craziness. For nearly an hour, this wonderful man just sat there and held my hand and told me how much he loved me and how he hates to see me so distressed. I mean, there was a Mission Impossible movie marathon on and yet he still came to me and put my needs first because he could not bear to watch me being so sad.

I am so blessed!! I can get through just about anything with this man by my side. It's not the first time he had to give me this kind of a pep talk and I really wish that it was the last. I really dislike feeling that bad about myself. I am better today, not great, but better.

I've said it before, friends, and I will say it again - God may not of have blessed me with a big house, a fancy car, an endless wardrobe or luxury vacations, but he blessed me with a man who loves me unconditionally and has given me a GREAT marriage. Thank you, Lord!!!

Awww... Stace... I am so glad you have your wonderful husband by your side. I think maybe there is some planetary or atmospheric something or other going on (I just don't know what... I know there was an eclipse) because I've just felt internal rage and unrest lately... like the most intense PMSing I've ever felt. So hang in there... I know a lot of crap has happened... hopefully things will calm back down soon.

You are lucky to have a husband as wonderful as he is. I know the feeling as I have found myself a good one too.

Keep it up!
