Today we celebrate Simon’s birthday.
So – time for his favourite things: first, Alisa and I made his favourite trifle recipe, courtesy of his mother sharing what she used to make for him when he was a child. Fingers crossed he will love it. It surely does look pretty.
And first, a dinner with lots of cheese. How can we possibly go wrong?
But mostly, I celebrate by understanding how blessed I am to have this love in my life: to love this beautiful man and receive his love in return.
I am doubly blessed to share this home with him (officially again after our visit to the lawyer tomorrow). I am now fully pouring my love and care into all of it: the house, the gardens, the woods, the trails – all of it is beautiful and I can feel my roots growing deeper into it every day.
I am content. And I am excited. This feels so right.
But back to Simon. I celebrate that he is alive and in my life – that we found each other and then found our way back to each other.
Love. What on earth is more important than love? And isn’t it wonderful that the more of it you give away, the more there is to give away…
Happy. Delighted. Excited. Blessed.
Right now. This moment in time. Perfect.
