^^^ I'm starting to truly learn this (the first half of ur post Rosenda). People can recognize it as sounding true and logical, but to really "feel-know" and recognize it is something different... something forged only by experience (and the pains of relationships falling apart).
And the second half is true wisdom that I'm so glad you shared here. It gives me hard-earned perspective... it's put the things I was feeling/thinking/meditating on into words.
We have been through some things lately. You have let me down and made me cry. Forgiveness is very powerful. I love you. Making love brings us together in a way that I choose to not share with anyone else. This month it will be 17 years. Marriage. Love. Togetherness.
Sometimes I just look into your eyes, and I feel so much better. I wouldn't want to do this without you.
