I was sick last week feeling like I was on the brink of death with a horrible ear ache & body aches. You know the first time you really get sick in front of the one you love? I don't mean just a cold either, the real thing, where you don't comb your hair or shower because it takes all the strength you have in you.
I have to say Thomas was amazing while I was sick taking me to the doctor & nursing me back to health. How is it I got so lucky that he would put up with my booger filled tissues and complete laziness. He was sweet enough to cook me tomato soup, tuck me in at night, rub Vicks on my back & remind me when to take my medication.
I swear I love him for taking care of me & still looking at me like I was the most beautiful woman in the world.
Thomas has been extra sweet to me lately my unfortunate week of sickness started off with a just because I love you gift. I had really wanted a beautiful Leaves Silver Ring from Pandora and could not find it. He told me a day or two before I seen him that he had a surprise for me. The last thing I had expected was the beautiful ring that I had pointed out in the mall the week before.
I used to believe that men like Thomas died off with my fathers generation. Flowers for no reason, romantic sweet nothings, someone who accepts me & loves me for the person I am. I remember when we first met telling my mother that he was way to good too be true and that I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's amazing how jaded life makes you but finding that person who changes that view, well that's priceless. Sometimes I wonder if I hadn't had my heart broken before would I be able to appreciate the heart I now call home.
Here is an open letter to the amazing man I fell in love with telling all you Kinks just how lucky I am.
"It was the best thing anyone had ever said to me, and it was the best for one reason: I felt exactly the same way. The person who loved me like this was the person I loved back, which can feel like an absolute miracle. It is an absolute miracle." - Emily Giffin
