a new kind of newness.

i came home not feeling very good.
i asked darling friend to lay down with me.
he brought me water and medicine.
he rubbed my back.

when i woke up from my little nap, he made me tomato rice soup and {two} grilled cheeses for dunking.

laying down on our couch, i realized this is what love is. I have been in love before. I'm not going to say this is the first time i've been in love. But this is the first time I've felt safe. That next to him, i just know everything will be okay. I don't know if it's a feeling of protection when i say i feel "safe" - though of course that has something to do with it. {like last night when we were already in bed almost asleep and one of our doggie babies started barking like she heard something, he did get up to investigate}

i feel safe as in he feels like home to me.

he takes care of me, and i want to take care of him.
he (my sweet smiling boy below) fills me with happiness... and i kinda like him. *wink

I know we've blogged about this/discussed it before but it fits. And i'm divinely happy for you!!

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

That is a love I want someday. And I'm glad you've found yours :)

Yay for love!
