I came home from choir and my husband greeted me with a huge smile and kisses and then I made him laugh really hard and then he made me laugh really hard and I could tell when he looked at me that I make him happy...really happy and I could see in his eyes that he knows it.
Then later he was saying he would accept this part in a shadow production of Rocky Horror Picture Show which we watched for the first time last night after someone asked him to play the doctor part. We were both pretty baffled by it... but he said "Oh I might as well do it to help them out. I bet it's not too hard to get high heels for size 13 feet." I said, "You are amazing me right now."
I don't know... I remembered the times that I really knew and saw in someone's eyes that I make them happy. Joyful.
It means a lot and although I might lighten burdens, supply comfort, or bring fun to random people, I know that when I see that look in my SO's face then...I think their happiness is the most endearing bonding thing ever. I love his joy. We've arrived. I've arrived finally after some ups and downs over the years. Those of you who are married know what I'm saying. I have always liked to romanticize our relationship, but at this point our relationship is surprising me by being more wonderful than my current expectations.
Use this space to reminisce about people who make you happy or who you make happy. I know that must be so precious to us. I'm not just talking about romantic partners. I'll give another example in a minute.
