Wednesday my husband gave me a truly beautiful gift. He came with me to Paint Nite. Now Paint Nite is a two hour social event where you all create the same painting while enjoying the local hosting restaurant or bar. You also need to know that M is color blind and hadn't painted anything since middle school. So in essence what he gave me was total engagement in an activity I dearly love (painting) while struggling with his own limitations. We laughed and concentrated and played all night. It was only one of the best dates of my life thanks to his joyful immersion in the artsy side of me. What a gift! I am grateful!
"The secret to a happy marriage is if you can be at peace with someone within four walls, if you are content because the one you love is near to you,
either upstairs or downstairs, or in the same room, and you feel that warmth that you don't find very often, then that is what love is all about."
