I stumbled over this quote by Kahlil Gibran from his book, The Prophet. I love that book and haven’t thought of this quote in some time.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Emmie and I have been married a year today. It’s been hard. But we’re still chugging away. I find our best times, our funnest times are when we are by ourselves… no kids, no chores, no obligations… just us being friends.
Those times are very few and very far between. But even during the mundane, the every day, with the burdens, the stress and tension of life… tension of each other… we manage to brush off that stuff (might take a week or so but it gets brushed off) and laugh with each other and share pleasure.
We went on a date in early October of ’09. That was five months ago. I think the last date we had before that was in June of that year… maybe… I think.
I don’t know.
I love being married to her. She is an amazing, beautiful, kind woman and wife.
I wish we had dated more though.
