The theme of my days for the past four months can be compiled into a synopsis of these words: hurry up and wait.
I am in love with, loved by, and love a wonderful guy. Here’s the thing – I hardly get to see him.
We live basically an hour and a half away from each other.
When it all boils down, and I want to see him – or vice versa – the distance is daunting.
Finding the other person that you’re pretty dang sure you wouldn’t mind seeing all day everyday is like discovering $20 when you wake up in the morning…every morning.
Take this feeling and then subtract five to six mornings a week. That’s what my guy and I have to endure.
We’ve reached a point of hoping our circumstances will ease up a tad, and they have here and there. Ultimately, I would say that as certain things have become easier, others have worsened.
All of this winds us up back at the start.
I see nearly another year’s worth of toils and troubles ahead. Another year of waiting for it all the calm down.
Here ends the depressing talk. Enter in – the bright side.
I know that because my guy and I are forced to ride this rickety roller coaster of distance issues, we are undoubtedly going to appreciate when the distance equals zero. We so much appreciate the times we actually see the other’s face in person!… rather than having to hope they still have one.
Appreciation is imperative in a relationship like ours. To appreciate is to be grateful for the things you are given – and to forget the things that you are not given.
Thank God for his lessons, no matter how long they take and the amount they sting.
