Time out to show some loving…

November 24, 2008 waterswife

Those who really know me, know that I’ve been through a lot in my lifetime. A lot of good…and a lot of bad. I wouldn’t trade any of it, because it has helped shape the person I am … and the person I want to be. However, due to some of the bad stuff in my life (a lot of which was my own fault … choosing the wrong paths in life), I closed off my heart.

Sure, I put on a good facade. I dated a lot of guys who were NOT good guys. I hung out with a lot of people who were NOT good. I basically felt that I didn’t deserve anything good and I would just take whatever I could get.

And then I met the man who opened my eyes … and my heart.

I knew that I was not the type of person that I wanted to be, or the type of person that I thought he deserved to be with. With Tyson’s gentle support, I made the changes that I wanted and needed in my life.

And here we are, almost 4 years later. I love him more and more every single day. I thought I’d share some text messages exchanged between us this after noon:

Tyson: I don’t get many things right the first time. In fact, I am told that a lot. Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls, brought be here. And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face? Now I see it every day. And I know that I am … I am … I am the luckiest. (note: this is the our song by Ben Folds “The Luckiest”, that he sang to me when he proposed)

Aimee: Thanks for making me cry on the treadmill! LOL. I love you so much. I am the luckiest.

T: LOL, sorry. I just love you a million.

A: Love you a million! I carry your heart, I carry it in mine. (quoting our favorite poem)

T: Mmm. I’m glad you’re my partner forever.

A: Me too. I am glad I am alone in this gym. Talk about an emotional work out.

Anyway, I know it’s all ewwy-gooey lovey stuff. But I just wanted everyone to know that I love this man.

(This was one week after he proposed…The night he gave me my ring…which I promptly got a scuff on the next day…LOL. Wicked awesome sunset, eh?)

    It’s perfectly WONDERFUL to share mushy gushy stuff. It helps you remember and reminds Tyson that you remember too. I’m so glad you found your best friend and partner :o)

    Now I’m crying sitting here at my computer! I love you both and am so thankful that you found each other and are happy … all a momma ever wants is to see her children happy and healthy in every respect ….
