I miss my husband

by adustyframe ~ November 26th, 2007

Today was just one of those days.

I wasn’t able to visit Lee since last Monday. All day today, I said, “Just one more week. Just one more week.”

This time next week my store owning days will be over. These past weeks have been crazy, but it’s just a few more days.

All day I felt that I just wanted to see my husband. It was so good this afternoon, to get a hug and a smooch.

To feel his arms around me. My place of safety.

I am so ready to be the wife that kisses her husband good-bye in the morning and waits to hear his footsteps on the back porch at night.

I can barely remember what that feels like.

I shared with him all the things weighing me down today. He listened. Then he told me to just let it go. “Like water off a duck’s back” is what he usually says. He’s right of course.

It’s just so good to talk with him and hear his voice and unburden.  Choosing what to tell him or not tell him is very difficult. He gets angry sometimes at the things people say or do to James and I. Yet, I have to share.

He’s the human that loves us most. The one that understands my heart when I share. He doesn’t criticize or tell me what I should be feeling. He loves me and he listens.

It was so good today to be wrapped in his embrace. For just a moment to feel like

“all’s right with the world”.
