Thank you so very much for your incredible words and advice. We got a conversation going tonight. It was rocky at first, but we pushed through. It is wonderful to talk to my hubby on a deeper level - commitment, jealousy, anger, and fear. Like I told him, "Hell, we could be alive and married for the next 100 years!" We have to talk about and deal with all these things at some point. Why wait? He really is amazing and I am thankful for him everyday.
Thank you again for your beautiful words, JRiver.
