Joanna of A Cup of Joe, posted a sweet article today titled Do you ever worry about your partner dying? Her article + the linked one brought me a smile and a tear. I highly recommend reading both her post here and these beautiful paragraphs here.
Joanna writes about how, when it comes to relationships, its important to appreciate the little things in the here and now, rather than in the future when they are gone. I, like Joanna, worry a lot. I know that boyfriend and I are both healthy young people, but that doesn't mean that something can't happen to us tomorrow. My worrying makes me realize how important it is to appreciate the little things and be grateful for love.
So some things that I love in the here and now are:
When he gives me a peck on the lips over the tennis net in the middle of a game [even if he claims its for bad luck].
Touching his neck; he has baby soft skin.
That I have to smile every time I watch him dance and sing to Sexy and I Know It when it plays on the radio.
How after work today he pulled the hair away from my face and rubbed my head when asking how my day was.
