I know it's not news to others and similar to many. I get brought down so easily :(

then again .. I am now in a better mood. Granted my nose is stuffy and runny at the same time from the perfume I'm wearing ... I didn't put any on, it's from all the hugs at work today :O

Yays for hugs!!! Here’s another one!

(((HUG!)))

(That’s not perfume; it’s my natural spring-fresh scent.)

Hugs are lovely! I’d give you one, too, dear. I’m forced to send you a cyber one instead. Or two!


Hugs x 2,

Yes, I know, lots of friends, & family, & friends that are family, all with hugs and concern ... yet sometimes I feel empty and alone :(  I honor of my family of friends, here's a selfie from this morning ... at least, I think it's an honor :-\

It's hard to post it yet here I am doing it anyways ....

That image is not about my face (I think I should have cropped it off), nor my hair, which was tied back so that I could eat lunch without eating hair. It is, however, a positive moment photo. The photo is a bit dark, however, you can tell what is positive if you look for it .. should I tell you .. hmm ...no, the top is not new and neither is the necklace.

On another note. My wife and I were driving home Saturday afternoon after getting deep massages (YAY!). Oh, speaking of massages a man did mine this time. I must say, I have never felt so vulnerable before. It's a strange feeling. Right ... back to my story. Lori mentioned stopping by to check in on her older brother who happens to be married to my younger sister (yes, you read that right). While she spoke with him (I make him uncomfortable but he is trying) I went in to see my sister for a minute.

Well, we hadn't seen each other in months, hmm .. last June? She immediately jumped up and yelled, "Faith!" and came over and gave me a hug. From there I sat down and we just chatted about things. A lot about me since she needed to catch up. Anyways, a good moment and a good visit because I never really could just sit and chat with her before. It was nice.

Another weekend event, without going into detail (TMI), I got to be intimate with the love of my life for the first time in months.

Let's see ... OH .. dreams. HOLY CRAP .. COW .. HORSE .. PIGEON .. Whatever exclamation you want to use.

The only thing I can remember, and quite vividly, is that I am always a woman (complete) in my dreams now. The part drawing the exclamation is the fact I am with a man  :icon_blink: :icon_blink: :icon_eek: :icon_eek: :icon_blink: :icon_blink:  I have no daytime thoughts of being with a man, no thoughts of being with any women either for that matter. I am most assuredly monogamous. The only attraction I feel of that type is with my wife.

I think that sums things up a little. I'm sitting here all butterflies and goosebumps trying to concentrate on work.

Dear Faith, I could see the love for each other in your and Lori's eyes when you were sitting across from me.  One would have to be blind do not see what you feel for each other!

I'm glad you're feeling good today, but are you going to leave us hanging?

I see a couple of things!

It made me happy to read your happy post.  How nice to have some girl time with your sister!  Dreams are weird.   That's about all you can say about them.

Danielle, I too hope they don't go away, they are very distracting though.

Dietlind, I've always expressed my love for Lori. Having it show for everyone is  good bonus.

Katie, oops  :D it's because my booblettes hold my top in place, even when I'm walking.

Kathy, I much prefer happy, that's why I posted. I needed to share. And yes, dreams are weird !!

Yes, to all of you, I cannot express enough how lucky I am and have been. She chose well? I chose well? We chose well? Oh the heck with it, somehow we got suckered into it and before we knew it, we were old and still together :D
