I've found him

Finding my compatible someone has been one of the happiest things in my life. The night we met is forever etched in my memory. There was something about him that just struck a cord within me. And now, years later, I've been lucky to see that he is that "someone" I'd been looking for all along.

 I am admittedly a lot to handle. Tim acknowledges it and dislikes it at times (i.e. our recent spats/ my rants over cleaning ... maybe I'm more my mother's daughter than I thought...) but overall, he embraces it. And I know deep down he actually likes (most times) being challenged and balanced by someone with a more fiery personality.

Everyone comes with baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack. 
When we  began our relationship, I had doubts. There was the distance. There was the chance of heartbreak after just having been through one. I was scared to let him in, only to lose him for whatever reason. But he promised me he'd prove my doubts wrong and he'd stick by me. And stick by me he has.

find the one... 
 I am overall an extremely positive person but there have been moments when I have been inconsolable. And Tim has been there - to listen, to hold me, to try to understand. We've made it through the unthinkable. I count my blessings to have a man who stands by me and makes my heart smile when it feels like my world is crumbling.

Lucky ducky me.
