I work hard for my own happiness. As part of this I’ve learned to appreciate the small things in life, those small pockets in time when life differs a little bit from the normal routine. A moment of passion. A moment of pleasant surprise. A moment of laughter. A moment of rest. In a relationship these moment are love’s oxygen. Like deep breaths of fresh air they keep the relationship alive. Romance should not be saved for those special occasions, it’s a daily necessity.
I am lucky to have a boyfriend who appreciates these moments just as much as I do.
Sean went on a camping trip on Tuesday and was meant to come home Sunday. As I was arriving from work on Saturday, tired from a busy day at work, I heard a familiar voice coming from somewhere behind our overgrown garden.
A voice and a greeting I’d grown so used to suddenly make my heart race.
Today we bought a table and two chairs for our garden. While Sean set up the table with much love and care, I made lunch with an equal amount of care and love.
