"Love is what you've been through with someone" James Thurber
I am feeling extra sappy lately towards Foster. I am not sure why, I just feel like I am so blessed. I have truly found my true soul mate. It's funny, I have gotten so many wonderful compliments on him as a person and as us as a couple.
When I went to the ball with him, a couple of his old friends approached me and complimented me on how well we mesh as a couple, how well we balance each other out. I was completely flattered by their remarks. I am the outgoing, fun loving, sometimes TOO talkative woman, and he is my strong, silent, easy going man...unless he has a few drinks in him, and then you can't get HIM to shut up!
Then I received a compliment from Kam. She met him for the second time at the silent auction this past weekend. I called her today to see how well the auction did for BIHAA, and she wanted to tell me something. She explained that when she first met Foster, about 2 months after our loss, she could tell he was an amazing man. However, she could tell in his eyes he was angry. She said it was just his demeanor and his eyes that told her this. I have to admit, at this point in our journey, we were probably BOTH a little angry.
This past weekend, however, as he held and played with every child in that room, and made every baby giggle and smile, as he teared up during the stories of loss, Kam's feelings of him being an amazing man were solidified. She says out of everyone there, he was one of just a few that made a HUGE impression on her.
He makes a huge impression on me everyday of our life together.
I honestly feel like our loss has made us strong as oak. No matter what, there will be no tearing us apart. We have gone through the "through sickness, through bad times," all we have to look forward to are those "good times, and through health". Right? To reiterate the quote at the top....love IS what you have been through with someone, and Foster and I have been to hell and back together, our love is unstoppable!
If you can't tell, I love him so much! :-)
