I woke today and even though it was raining outside the sun was shining inside where I lay awake in bed.
The sun was shining not on, but from you as you lay next to me. I looked on at your sleeping form and your peaceful expression and the radiance that came from within was a sun to me.
How could a little rain outside dampen my day when I had the sun in my bed to keep me warm and dry.
How could a cold wind blow outside and make me cold when I had the warmth of your affection right here beside me keeping me warm.
How could any problems that I might have to face today matter when I had someone like you to stand beside me and help me through what ever might come my way.
How could I worry about my health when I know that you will always be there to help me through any illness and be my comfort if I do not recover.
How could a day be any better than a day started with the one you love asleep beside you giving you a silent inspiration to greet things knowing that no matter what life has to offer be it good or bad she will always be there for you. Knowing that with her you can face anything and no matter the outcome you will always be a winner.
Oh how I relate each day with your thoughts. I have enjoyed 40 wonderfrul and beautiful years with the same kind caring partner. I've spent a lot of time with my head resting on my hand and elbo just observing this woman lying next to me with her slight smile of confidence and self assurance that she makes God proud as she loves and cares for me each moment she is awake. You and I know we are lucky to have God in our heart and a caring partner by our side. I thank God each day for this blessing.
