Yesterday he was home all day, for what most of my readers know we call our WE-kend, because it's all about us. Rarely do we invite anyone else to join in on our special time together. Mostly we take long hikes, enjoy good food, wrestle around with Kiki, and spend alot of time watching movies, talking, and especially laughing. Something which has kept our love fresh for over ten years now is our tendency to make eachother laugh. His father once commented that, when Ramon and I spent our first summer together, holed up in his parent's converted garage, the only sign anyone was there was the ringing laughter that sounded throughout the day. It's true, humor has been our best friend, and hopefully always will be, come what may.
Another thing we try to do is spoil one another. We are both always looking for ways to make eachother feel special. I try to cook meals I think he'll love, knowing his long hours at the office are often empty of nutritious and delicious food, and I also give him as many back rubs and encouraging words as I can. He supports me in my creative endeavors, gives me everything I really want or need, and assures me again and again that he is here for me with all the strength and love he can muster.
I believe that as long as we keep our sense of humor and our desire to please one another going strong, we will be blessed to share many happy years together.
