First a little business: I just realized that little over four years ago I started writing this blog. I had no idea that I’d still be here sharing stories of my Vampire life and parenting tips and other odds and ends. More odds than ends I think. There have been over 1,000 posts. Holy Crap, I could have written a couple of best-selling novels… anyway. Thank you everyone who has followed and supported this odd little blog.
And speaking of Anniversaries, today, May 3 Teddy and I will celebrate our wedding anniversary. Needless to say “Short Story Sunday” will be a rerun today (but I know you’ll still like it.)
Today I have a few brief words about true love and perfect days.
True love exists. It is rare, but it doesn’t have to be. It isn’t a thing that one chases or has angst about. It isn’t something for teens. It isn’t turning into a Vampire for a tall mysterious stranger.
True love is when you’ve been together for decades and you know it is still right. No doubts. No regrets.
Then there are those perfect days. Teddy and I have had more than our share. We’ve had more crap than our share, but we savor those perfect days.
About fifteen years ago, when the children were tiny, Teddy and I spend several hour walking among dinosaur bones. It was an exhibit of amazing bones from Russian – bones of animals who had walked and run and maybe even loved twenty million years ago. We saw amazing creatures of all sizes in shaped and forms we could have never imagined. We’d gone during the week so we practically had the place to ourselves. It was magical and romantic in ways I can’t explain.
Dinosaur bones – who would have thought?
We’ve had so many perfect days as parents. We’ve had perfect days as friends. We’ve had perfect days alone. Like true love, a perfect day is hard to explain. You just know. You feel the glow. You feel content and happy just because.
Wishing all of you a perfect day, and maybe even a bit of true love.
