Happy Anniversary to My Huscub

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Saturday and it is also the six month anniversary for Todd and me. It is also another Faces of HIV event in Lauderhill today along with our local Pride event. So Todd and I will try and do what he has energy to do while enjoying our six month anniversary together.

Now six months might not sound like a big deal to those of you who have been with someone for years. But I love my husband so much I cherish every milestone we reach and look forward to hopefully many years together.

I would like to share a poem I posted on his Facebook wall:

When I Think of You

When I think of you, I think only of how lucky I am to have you in my life. So many times I wish our paths had come close, yet they never crossed When they finally did, I knew you belonged in my arms.

The way you smile when I make you laugh The tender way you relax when I hold you near The look in your eyes when you tell me you love me All fill me with wonder

I thank heaven every day for the gift of you and your love, and I hope and dream of our future together I love you more than I thought possible Yet my love keeps growing as each day passes.

I belong with you and you with me and with the love between us we'll be together for eternity.

I hope you enjoyed the poem I wrote for my baby. I was never one to write poetry. But the love I have for Todd just comes bursting out in words like I have never had happen before in my life. To me, it is just another sign of how much I love him.

If you read my blog regularly you know Todd has had a very difficult year so far with his health. He was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism which he is still having to deal with now. Because of this, he does not have much energy to get out to do things and has a hard time catching his breath.

I was never a homebody since my work kept my on the road for months at a time. I normally never saw home more than sixty days a year at most. But there is nothing I love more than being on the couch or in bed holding him and telling him how much I love him.

So please keep my baby in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to deal with these health challenges. I want to have him around a long time so we can enjoy the rest of our lives together.

UPDATE: The anniversary turned into a bust. We ended up having an argument because of situations that I will not go into here. Needless to say, the day did not turn out like I hoped.

Hope you have a great weekend. Stay tuned to pictures with Dab the AIDS Bear at events.

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
