... it was on this very day 3 years ago that Rhett asked me if I'd be his, and I said yes. Love roped us in, hard. Two independent, strong willed, determinedly single, happily selfish people bound together tight by an unbreakable rope of love.
to say we haven't struggled in those ropes would be a fat lie.
but we've finally learned that pulling against each other, hurts. So elementary a lesson, right? but oh so true. Those love ropes just don't give, and man oh man can they burn. But by leaning on each other, realizing when the other has a need, checking with the other before heading off in one direction ~ to make sure we're both headed in the same direction, and working together .. we've made our love and those ropes that bind us so much more comfortable. The rope burns are fewer and fewer now, and longer and longer apart, and I have faith that someday, they will cease all together. And if one were to think that would take a miracle? I'll wait for it. Cause after all we've been through, I'm 100% on this: those ropes aren't gonna break. They are here to stay. I love that man, and I know he loves me.
last night Rhett leaned over to me..
He said "babe, 3 years. We've been together for 3 years tomorrow."
I said "I knoooooow.. how the heck did that happen babe?"
He said "Fate. And some Miracles."
