I’m back at the stable until tomorrow evening – and that has meant a lot of busy-ness. Nothing serious, of course, just laundry and napping (What – napping is not being busy? Then clearly, you have no idea the dedication it takes to nap with total enthusiasm!)
But finally, I have done what needs doing (bubble bath – yes, this also takes concentration and dedication) and I’m ready to get down to writing for the rest of the day with only small interruptions to put bread in the oven, eat etc. I’m pleased about the excitement I feel about this manuscript – about the work I am doing. The end result doesn’t matter to me nearly as much as the process and how happy I am to be doing it.
Okay – that takes care of the “work” portion of the post. On to intimacy. I thought about Simon today, as I normally do all day long, and understood that one of the greatest gifts of this relationship is the intimacy we share. I feel there is nothing I can’t tell him and nothing I can’t share with him. This intimacy is beyond the physical, although I treasure that too with all my heart. What we have is truly In To Me See. At my age, I didn’t think there were any “first-times” still to experience. Simon has shown me first after first after first. This is beyond being a blessing – it’s what I would call grace.
Reading back over my blogs from our early days, I see how much our relationship has changed and grown. It has such depth. I welcome every change, knowing there are more to come and trusting they will be rich, deep and meaningful. I’ve seen my doubts and fears disappear. I’ve experienced a healing of my soul. I have received the most precious gifts. I am truly blessed.
