Six months! Tomorrow marks 6 months with Sir and Danae. Whoot! Where did the time go? So much has occurred. So much has changed. In such a short space of time. I can’t even begin to imagine what 6 years might bring!
As I sat at my desk, this morning, the door to the office hesitantly cracked open. I looked up to tell whomever is most likely lost, “Come in” in my friendly receptionist voice. Sir’s face peeks around the corner of the door just as I finish my invitation. I excitedly get up to usher him in when I see Danae is behind him! This was an unexpected and very welcome visit.
As he fully appears around the door, I can see he is holding flowers! I wonder what the occasion is, but am too excited to see them to worry about the flowers. I reach for the two of them as he hands me the flowers and I realize Danae is holding flowers, too. I ask what they are for and if Danae had gotten some as well. They both shake their heads while telling me that they are for our anniversary and both vases are for me. I blankly look at the two of them, long enough, that Danae explains tomorrow is the 10th – our 6 month anniversary! I unsuccessfully attempt to catch the squeal as it spills from my ear-to-ear grin…..and hold the flowers…..and hug them…..all at the same time! They laugh and we all hug, as the warmth of our love surrounds us there in my normal, everyday office space. What a wonderful surprise!
What a wonderful life! I am blessed beyond words to have Sir and Danae in my life and honored to have the opportunity to be in theirs. To share experiences, both good and not-so-good. To hold and be held. To do common household chores together. To sit in each others’ company. To do art and write poetry together. To just be. Together. It is such a wonder!
Tonight, we returned to the place it slowly began between us. We sat at the same table in a local pizza place and enjoyed dinner. We laughed and marveled at the changes. We giggled and chuckled at the heady emotion that surrounded us. We celebrated the moments that had been and were currently passing. The food was lovely. The memories were a lot of fun. (Surprisingly, there are quite a few in only 6 months!) The love was almost visible.
Hey, world! Guess what?? I’m in love! I’m loved! I could stand on a mountain top, dancing and twirling, while singing of it to all of you. I am bursting with joy and excitement. The smile won’t leave my face. Concentration to type is difficult, but this is an occasion to be earmarked. One of many more to come, I’m sure.
Happy six months, Sir! Happy six months, Danae! May blessings rain down upon you both. I love you. I treasure you.
