I have had the chance to have some conversations about love lately. You can feel it for someone, but not have it be quite right. When love comes in that form, it is tricky. Your heart might want one thing, but it is not meant to be. There is that question, the not-sure, the nagging feeling. I have felt that a few times in life.
And then, one day...it is clear, quiet, sure. and you just have a knowing. a contentment. It is not perfect, but it is sure. It is not full of roses and bubbles, but it is steadfast. And when you both have the feeling and that belief, there is nothing else like it in the world.
That is Steven.
my sure, my steadfast, my ebb and flow, my quiet
except for when we are arguing or bantering! LOL! We have this teasing thing...this back and forth. I see him the same way with his friends so I like that we can hang in the same way. Sometimes, our banter makes other comfortable. Sometimes, our banter turns into arguing...issues come forth. We are heated like that. There are things about him that make me want to scream and I know he feels the same about me. But that dissolves and we are left,
sure, steadfast, quiet...
I made this layout to document our banter, a component of who we are. I hope we keep that playfulness with each other. That we continue to be friends too.
Many of you stopped by the Pebbles blog this week and saw this layout! Thanks for all the lovely comments! I used the With Love collection here! I love those speech bubbles!
I placed my journaling on them! Our story...or at least part of it! Because along with what we have accomplished, there is so much more to look forward to!
I know in my heart that all the hurt that came before led me right here...
in love with my sure, my steadfast, my quiet.
