In a few days is our aniversary, but we are trying to celebrate it today. she is trying to get dressed, so we can go to a play. I was wanding around another writting group, and it got me annoyed at how simple folks are. So here is Zodi's advice on what it can mean to be in love.

I have read the stories about how a guy gives his life up for his girl, and that is described as the ultimate form of love. I would offer a counter to that.

The ultimate form of love, is being with your love until the end. Its watching her slowly fade through an illness, and knowing there is nothing you can do, but be there for her, take care of her, and make sure she is taking her meds. Its watching and wondering everyday “is this going to be a good day? Or not”. Its facing the terror of yet another stay in the hospital, or another surgery to they take another piece of her intestines out. Its hold her and stroking her hair when she cant leave the bathroom, and is losing hope again. Its telling her its going to be ok, when you know there is no cure. Its watching her hide everything until the pain is too great, for even her to manage.
Giving up your life for someone is easier than you think. It’s a flash decision, and in a perverse way its romantic. Loveing another, more than yourself is living with them, and for them, through the good times AND the bad ones. Its knowing that more bad than good will come, and finding new ways to love her anyway. Its loving her at her worst, knowing that this is the way it will be until the illness eventually claims her life. Knowing that it will eventually leave you all alone.

And knowing it is worth it in spite of all of that.



Happy belated anniversary.

I can't really give you my insight on committed and romantic relationships as to how I'm terrible at both of those factors. Someday though, someday I will have it mastered no problem and I will keep this in mind.

Yeah, I got that memo, I'm just saying. Reading your old ones were as funny as all get out. Hey, sensei, how many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

Hey, does anyone find it odd that the forum dedicated for chatting is probably less used than the other forums? And van, I think she was just voicing her thoughts out loud. Like I do very often. Matter of fact, unless it's really short you probably won't find a post by me where I'm not thinking out loud. My thoughts just kinda go from brain directly to keyboard, which can cause problems sometimes when I'm thinking about two different things and I mix them up and post at the wrong place. That happens a little too often for my comfort...
