After this crazy week with work and my oldest daughter flying off the handle with me over the US election, I really needed to have something good. I also didn't get to see Valentina on Thursday due to her having a sleep over at Cindy's as there was no school Friday. She came home very excited for the five days I had off, we talked and then I received a text from David that it was a good time to call.
I called him and we caught up about everything, I babbled about silly stuff and important stuff. We laughed incessantly, if he wasn't making me laugh, I was making him laugh. I know I felt extremely grateful, especially since we hadn't chatted on the phone for over three and a half months.
I can talk at the best of times but look out if I haven't talked to you in months. David took it all in stride, he laughed and teased me, told me how wonderful he thought I was. I sighed when the conversation was over; I realized how much I had been holding inside me and how wonderful it felt to feel free.
I needed to tell him of all my shortcomings, my failures and mostly my accomplishments. I was so afraid I would disappoint him but he was loving and kind and he told me to remember how wonderful and strong I am and that I can continue to strive forward.
Can you all see why I love David, I'm so grateful we are best friends; he sees the best in me and shows me I am worthy of good things. I can see what he sees when he talks to me and sometimes that's all I need.
Today is Remembrance day, I'm incredibly grateful for the veteran's and the people in the military. My David is in the military and I love his passion for his career. I'm thankful to have him in my life, someone I can be completely open and honest with and know in my heart that he'll never judge me.
Remember to take a moment to thank the people you know that are in the military, they defend and protect our country and freedom.
