A Real Prince

I've been under the weather for the last few days, so much so, that I've sunk to the point that I'm ready to call a doctor. It's just a sore throat, but my sore throats have a habit into becoming strep. Blech!

The one highlight of my week is that Greg took emergency vacation so he could take care of me. Is that not a prince of a man?

A few weeks ago we were talking to a clerk and she made a remark that we looked so happy. Ironically, we get that comment a lot. We've been married 33 years and we still hold hands and kiss.

Greg mentioned that he's met some people who were jealous of our relationship and he couldn't understand that. Why would you be angry at someone else's happiness? That doesn't even make sense.

Lest I mislead you, we are a normal couple in every sense of the word. We make mistakes. We have fights--at times, doosies since we're both alphas. And sometimes we can even be unkind. But we always want what's best for the other.

I think that pretty much sums up our relationship. Emotions, stress and hardship sometimes muddy the waters, but if your heart is in the right place, you'll rarely go too far wrong.

We always watch each other's back. And when one of us is down, we know the other is there to carry us for a while. It all comes down to trust.

Right now, I'm going to trust him to wake me in time for my doctor's appointment. *g* I'm going back to bed.

Have a great day, everyone.

Take it easy, M. Strange how these viruses always manage to seemingly circumnavigate the world in the blink of an eye. ;)

I hope you feel better soon.

And your man does sound like a keeper! :)

Hope you have a restful weekend!

Thanks, guys. A shot in the butt yesterday has made me feel much better this morning. I still feel weak though, so I will be cocooning through the weekend.

As I suspected it was Strep again--my Achilles Heel. :o)
