There's nothing better than staying in bed at night watching the old episodes of XFiles, cuddling in the morning while we both moan about having to get up, making dinner together, anticipating each others needs and already having the tea done, or the dishes washed. Its these times when I think, yes I will grow old with you, no matter what may come. The times when I think just how lucky am I to have this person to walk the path with me. *happy sigh*
I've often wondered if was possible to refall in love, go through that whole early stages of "new relationship" once you've been in it for awhile. I figure if people can suddenly fall out of love with their partner, could they not also go through stages where it is reaffirmed and made fresh again? Like a second chance to be in that perma-afterglow? Makes sense to me, and that's where I feel I'm at. Yes, there are still times when he makes me grit my teeth and go on, but those times haven't been as visible lately.
But then again, I could just be swayed by my positive outlook at the moment, but I think not. I don't think I'd trade this feeling for anything. And that's what is important, isn't it?
