Yes. I mean that. We never know how much “good” we will have each year and so I treasure it.
The last three days have been “GOOD”! In fact, they could be categorized as “GREAT”! We both needed a break in the bad. It was wearing us so thin that we weren’t able to see the “good”.
He’s been happy and energetic and I’ve been less tense and snippy because of that. We haven’t spent every moment together – he’s worked a lot on his models and pulled some wood from the back yard to the front. (With the truck…) I’ve cleaned and watched shows I’ve had DVRd for entirely too long. It’s been incredibly relaxing for both of us.
And so, I stay through the bad because there IS good. Heck, there is even GREAT! I supposed during the bad times it proves that love IS enough.
