Daily Prompt: Cupid’s Arrow
It’s Valentine’s Day, so write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!
On this day, Valentines Day we are to take time to rejoice in the gifts of love with the ones we love. When I ponder this, I think that everyday is Valentines Day for us. I feel so blessed to be in this journey of life with you, my best friend. There is plenty of business going on in our lives that keep us from spending the time we would like together. Distractions that will age out of our home soon. Obligations and differents hats we are responsible for, and never ceasing to work as a team to make all things possible for our “Brady” sized family. It is funny how we joke about all the things we will do when the kids are all out. The feeling inside me when we thing discuss being together in the future since we have both had babies since we were babies.
Our love has not come easy by any stretch, well at least not easy to reach that point. Each of us had built every bit of character we possess through blood, sweat and tears. None of the love we have came easily or without a very costly price. However without the paths we walked before each other, we would not appreciate what we have today with the passion that we do. A love so plain yet deep, simple but by no means easy is what we have. The deepest, most rewarding kind of love. There is not a single thing we wouldn’t do for the other, knowing that neither of us would ever ask anything in violation of the other. The mutual respect and selfless love we have is rare and immeasurable.
Isn’t that what you get when you have already kissed every frog first??? And isn’t that what you get when you have settled for less for so long, and then a DECENT, UN-SELFISH person comes along, doesnt it seem to flow so naturally? When you have gone and made your mistakes due to immaturity or bad motives before meeting “the one”, things just seem so much more real, so genuine, so so so good.
