I’m back from my long business trip, grateful to be home, knowing that my true home is 440 miles away. There’s something about traveling that makes me feel farther away than even miles can calculate. Is it the disruption to our routine, the thing that connects us while we are physically apart? Is it the knowing that there are even more miles between us? I don’t have the answers. But I’m glad to be home.
Last night, we spent an hour or more talking about our relationship, talking long into the night, refusing to give in to exhaustion. I spoke passionately about putting fear aside. I reminded him that if he is my rock – which is he – then I am also his rock. We can do anything together. We are stronger because of one another, not despite the other. I admitted that I had been wary just a few months ago that maybe he wasn’t serious about making changes he said he wanted to make. I told him that I knew he was strong enough, that now he proves to me every day that he wants this as much as I do.
We skirt around the “marriage” topic. Neither of us is ready for that conversation. Like much of our relationship, if there’s a time to be ready for it, I have no doubt we’ll reach a similar conclusion at about the same time. One of us will say, “I have something I want to talk about…” and the topic will tumble out to be discussed, dissected, debated, planned, strategized…and ultimately a decision will be made that we can both live with. (I wouldn’t be a babygirl if I didn’t hope that, if we mutually decide that works for us, romantic gestures would follow. But I digress…). And no doubt, one or both of us will blog about it.
Every day we work towards something that takes our breath away, strengthens our backbone, gives us hope, makes us deliriously happy, and is worth fighting and working for. Every single day. I know that time is slowly moving, that we are making progress in our goals, dreams, desires to be together. I know we will be together soon…but not soon enough.
Welcome to Wicked Wednesday! This week’s prompt is “Together.” Hmmmm, can you guess what that made me think of? /giggles
In one way or another we have both had our doubts but though an open line of communication we have dispelled them.
Things are gaining momentum now, moving forward.
There are and always will be unforeseen obstacles but we manage to work through them together moving towards the ultimate goal.
Things are gaining momentum in big, fast, larger than life ways. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time – but I couldn’t imagine doing this with anyone else.
I hope your heart gets filled to overflowing goodness soon. LDR’s are difficult at best. and we just keep hope alive at times- sounds like you will be together soon and at last! Blessings!
((HUGS)) Thank you. I think we’re on track for everything we’ve planned. Life is moving along nicely. 🙂
I can’t wait until JUNE!!!!! If I am looking forward to you being together, how much more can it be for you two? Love to read about the heart of your relationship. Xoxoxox
Me neither!!!! 🙂
I don’t think we’re going to be able to stop smiling once June gets here…and I have a feeling many of you will have plenty of reasons to label us “cute.” 🙂
Just wonder what is holding both of you from moving forward further?
We’re working on a plan, instead of moving forward impetuously. The plan is to be together by June, and right now, everything is on track.
“Every day we work towards something that takes our breath away, strengthens our backbone, gives us hope, makes us deliriously happy, and is worth fighting and working for”
<3 this! This is what so many people fail to do!
🙂 You’re right. I’d say we both failed to do this in our previous relationships.
My view of the world tells me that the Universe was just getting us ready for one another. Damn Universe took long enough! LOL
I remember those days of being apart but so wanting to be together… we got there in the end though and I am sure you will to
Thank you. It’s nice to see people who’ve made it out the other side of this hell known as LDR. 🙂
It’s wonderful how two people who are meant to be together, eventually find the way to be together, no matter what obstacles they have on their road to happiness.
The Universe seems to be opening doors left and right for us. We’re trying to do this in the most responsible way we know how, and things are happening faster than we anticipated. Life is good. 🙂
I love all of the hope underlying this blog post.
Hugs to both of you.
((HUGS)) Sometimes hope is all you have…thankfully, we have stubborn determination, too.
It is often hard for me to fully appreciate LDRs – I have never lived more than 200metres away from my love That makes me exceptionally lucky!
Wish you all the best.
You are exceptionally lucky, but it sounds like you realize it. 🙂
I think we are going to be just fine very soon.
A truly lovely, and totally un-wicked, Wednesday post.
I know, right? Damn these posts for making me think. 🙂
I’m so happy for you two. You’re so sweet together.
🙂 Thank you. We’re kinky and dirty, too, I promise!
I know how you feel I think. We were in a trans-Atlantic LDR for 2 years before we could be together and it was hard. Ten years later, and we couldn’t be happier. Good luck to you both.
Wow, I can’t imagine trans-Atlantic. Glad you closed the distance!
Thank you. We’re happy and moving forward at lightning speed right now. 🙂
My hats off to you SilverDom for a relationship with that kind of distance.
Hearing that it has worked out for you gives us hope.
Bring on June!!!
People that should be together get together, it’s the way of the universe, even if it does seem impossible, nothing is ever truly impossible.
Thank you for sharing.
I’m adoring the universe right about now. Of course, I keep waiting for something to go wrong…but even if it does, I know we’ll weather it together. 🙂
