How I knew i was loved

Trust me when i tell you i am very aware every day that i am loved. But there are those defining moments that you never forget. When i was married before my then husband and i would talk about the day when we could retire and the life we wanted. When asked he would say that all he needed to be happy was a chunk of land, his truck, his dog and his hunting gear. I would look at him and ask if that was all. After a pause he would look at me and go Oh yeah and my wife. It gutted me every time.

Now here we are years later and i am remarried. Life every day is good. So driving down the road my husband, my king, realizes he has no lighter. this is tragic in his world. I pull one out of my pocket and laughingly ask him what he would do without me. He response melted my heart. I would be a wreck, living in the poor house, a shell of a human with an alcoholic girlfriend working 2 jobs. No i would just die. That is what my life would be without you.

How time changes and how great it is to be so loved.
