Saturday, 3/14/09 - "DANCE OF LOVE"

(The dance of Prayer Girl and Mr. Steveroni)

"DANCE OF LOVE"

Today in our Al-Anon meditation meeting we read a page and then meditated for 5 minutes before discussion. The reading described someone who took the time to thank a total stranger for their service and how grateful that stranger was for the kind words. There is then a question at the end of the reading. Today, it was, "When was a recent time when you went out of your way to say "thank you" to someone?

My mind was somewhat scattered when I arrived at the meeting, people kept arriving late and I had to keep moving my chair, and it was quite hot in the room. Consequently, I was a million miles from meditation during that 5 minutes. Yet, just before the time was up a thought came into my mind. When was the last time I said "thank you" to the person I live with? To the person I love the most? So.....that's the topic of this blog.

Thank you Mr. Steveroni, hubby dear, for:

  • Asking me to join you in this Dance of Love - this Dance of Life!
  • Sharing your life with me - the good, the bad, the in-between, and the exceptionally wonderful.
  • Sharing with me and spreading your laughter, humor, and joy.
  • Being the man that you were when I met you and being the man you are today.
  • Allowing us to grow spiritually and religiously together.
  • Sharing your love of Alcoholics Anonymous - allowing us to live a life based on the spiritual principles of the AA way of life.

Thank you, my love, for:
  • Supporting me at all times NMW (no matter what)!
  • Believing in me always and when I'm having trouble believing in myself.
  • Being patient in the early years of our marriage as the "blended" family found it's way to a comfortable place.

Thank you, my dearest, for:

  • Saying to me one day, "You've got to get out of that job." That sentence opened the door to my retirement. Thank you. Thank you.
  • Cruising to the Caribbean with me.
  • Being a wonderful companion and help-mate.
  • Always being forgiving.

Thank you, my love, for:

  • Sharing your life with me.
  • Being a miracle in my life - being the soul-mate God intended for me.

Let's keep dancing.
Let's dance into eternity together.

Weeeell, what can I say? Let's see...um...hmmmm...how about? No!, how's this:

"I knew there'd be trouble when I talked prayer Girl into blogging last September!"

No, that doesn't sound right, either. But it's bed time, anyway.
Thank you, PG.

Love,
Steve E.

Well Steveroni is one of the luckiest men alive. Great post PG
I leave little notes for my beautiful, telling her how much I love her, how great sheis.. I hide thse in odd places, in the middle of a stack of dishes, in work folders, books. She may not find them for years, but when she does, the smile that brings, the feelings on both sides is incredible.
