I love Rusty....

Over the past several day's Rusty has reminded me why I love him so much.

One the day Amber had her accident with the cat, Rusty came home and was there for Amber. Rusty works with another retired marine and this marine reminded Rusty that this is a big deal to Amber. After all Amber still calls Rusty's to kill spiders. I love the way Rusty waited up for Amber and gave her a hug and just let her cry.

I love the fact that after going out with the boy's he called to tell me that he had a great time and thanked me for telling him to go. It is not that Rusty has to ask permission to go out with the boy's, it is the fact he knows I held down the fort and that he would not have to do anything, but go have a good time.

I love the Rusty cranked up a song on you tube and we danced on the porch. We have not done that in a very long time.

I love the way Rusty helped me clean out a house down the street and in return Rusty got a workbench and we got some other things for the house.

I love the way Rusty just sat on the bed on watched me changed the filter on the cold air return. For years Rusty and I have argued over me doing things like that. Now I got to change the filter without him complaining.

I love the way Rusty watched me take a nap today.

I love the way Rusty said nothing to me when I had to turn down tickets to burning man. Rusty knows that I have wanted to go. He knows that I want to run around naked and set things on fire.

A very nice entry of appreciation for your Rusty.  We need those to keep love alive in the world, between couples.  I love having those moments with a male companion. Even with one who is not entirely active as a couple but still means a lot to me.  We are still a couple when we are working on our projects and other times, too.  We all have our drawbacks, but then we find one who in spite of his flaws seems worth hanging on to.  It's important to recognize a moment of contentment or otherwise there would be a lot more divorces.  Gerry
