Yesterday I was checking my Facebook, and a message popped up from a friend of mine who I met at the U of A. We were in the same Masters Program, and we’ve kept in contact through weekly emails/blogs/etc over the past 6 or 7 years. Anyway, I hadn’t heard from him in quite a while, and all his message said was:
“Hey there – I was just thinking the other day (and this morning) about how jealous I am of the relationship between you and Chris. That’s all.”
That message completely made my day. Not because I made someone jealous…I never strive to do that….but because someone who lives far away and is doing his own thing in a totally separate life/world would be going about his day and start thinking about my relationship in a positive way. Like we had made an impression, just by being us. It made me smile…made me think that we must be doing something right…made me even more appreciative for what we have. I know I talk about my DH a little too much (some of you are probably like “again? geez!”), but he’s my life. And I wouldn’t trade him for the world (or for Brad Pitt)!
