Timeless Love

Time to Grow Up
Dedicated to For Dabe

Submitted by Charlotte

I don't know what I did in this life or in any of my past ones to deserve a man as wonderful as my husband. We first met when we were 15. We didn't move in the same circles, but a similar class schedule and the fact that he let me copy his trigonometry homework led to a fairly strong friendship. The day after we graduated from high school we started dating and knew right away that we would be spending the rest of our lives together. It's sounds trite and naïve, but somewhere in our souls and hearts, we just knew.

We have been married for almost five years now and have made our family circle a little wider with the addition of our daughter. I know that I could not be more blessed. My husband's heart is so enormous and all-encompassing that people love him pretty much on sight. The things that he has to put up with! I am an extremely high maintenance person. For whatever reason, I require lots of encouragement, confidence boosting and reassurance. All of those he showers on me in lovingly patient quantities, without an exhausted sigh or roll of the eyes. Over the years I have grown into a fairly confident woman, warmly wrapped in the security of his love.

I lied to him once. When we were younger, he asked me if I ever wanted to go to Hawaii. I told him no. Hawaii didn't hold a special interest for me. Even as I said it, all of the places in the world that I have longed my whole life to visit were passing through my head tauntingly. Italy, Scotland, Australia, Egypt, and beautiful, lush Hawaii. I knew he had always wanted to go. At the time we probably could have afforded it. There were only two of us and no mortgage. But again, as always, it comes back to my character flaws. I was terrified of flying. The thought of getting on a plane used to make me break into a cold sweat. I couldn't bring myself to do it. So I lied and deprived the one person in this world who would do anything for me.

Recently, due to family emergencies, I have found necessary to fly. All of my trips have been without incident and I actually quite enjoyed myself. The plane trips and the reasons for them led me to an epiphany: Life is for the living and you live that life for the ones you love. I love my husband and daughter. I live for my husband and daughter. I want to take him to Hawaii and show him all of the wonderful things in life I have been able to enjoy because of him. Hawaii would be a nice start to the grown up part of our lives. Maybe we'll even widen our family circle a little more…
