Sometimes, He Surprises Me

4 years ago

There are days...... my man surprises me;

There are days..... I'd like to knock his block off;

There are days..... I remember why I married him;

And there are those days..... that I simply think I was drunk when I got married;

Then there are days like yesterday...... when my man totally surprises me!


You have to understand where I'm coming from.

My hubs and I married in 2004 at the ripe age of 36.  My first marriage and my hubs second.

See, he was already damaged goods when I got him. Add over 21 years in the military (USAF) that included several tours to the "sandbox" and yet you have a more damaged man.

However, I still married him despite these flaws...... especially considering I was not perfect either.


Over the years, I've tried very hard to understand the way he thinks;

His lack of celebrating holidays;

His lack of emotions;

And lack of support.......... to me........... when I really need it.

And knowing damn well, if I was a military member.............. he'd be right there for me.


But somehow, I continue to love this man;

Hate this man;

Wish him to move out to shed;

Welcome him into my arms;

And thank the day he became my best friend;

The man I'll grow old with;

The one I'll have wheelchair races with;

or cane fights, at this rate.


Yes, Sometimes He Surprises Me


I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! ;)

Happy Valentine's Day!!
