I release butterflies… What’s your super power?
Relaxing outside with MSP (Mr. Sexy Pants aka my husband for those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook) after he comes home from work is one of my favorite things to do. We have coffee by the pool, listening to the waterfall and the birds singing, and watch the dogs run around chasing squirrels as we catch up on each others day. It’s a quiet, peaceful part of our routine that allows us to reconnect after 8 hours apart.
Eight hours, huh? You laugh, but those who really know us also know that we are happiest together, and after 25 years of marriage, eight hours apart is still the worst part of each others days.
It’s in these times that my “Super Power” comes in handy. My husband calls it “Releasing Butterflies”. My ability to release the happiness inside of me to uplift him, and negate the bad energies that the stress of his life has brought upon him. My daughter says that I am the most annoying person in the world because I’m too happy all of the time. I’ll take that. There’s too much sadness in the world.
My natural state is to be happy. Glass always half full, look on the bright side, no dark clouds here…. But, I also have so many other things that keep me that way. Things that, should I have a bad day, are always there to bring me back up.
#1 I’m married to the love of my life, who also happens to be my best friend
#2 He tells, and shows me that one of his major goals in life is to make sure I’m happy… everyday
#3 He loves me in words, and actions…… always seeming to love me more today than he did yesterday
#4 He listens to me… really listens to me. Phone/tablet/computer down…. looking me right in the eye listens to me when I need him to
#5 He makes me laugh. Belly laugh
#6 He puts our family, our pod, myself and our daughter, US above everything else. We are his priority
I could go on and on, but if you really look at it, really pay attention to what’s going on in Paradise, you will come to the same conclusion that I have. My Love is the one who gave me these “butterflies” almost 26 years ago, and when your heart is as full as mine is, like a balloon with too much air, the butterflies have to go somewhere!
