one more thing

This week I got an email from a friend that I have known for 3 years. She and her husband are really great people, but she was telling me and others about their 15 year marriage and what they had learned. I cracked up, I have been married 46 years and still finding out things about Gordon I never knew before, 1. either I wasn't paying attention or 2. he never told me. More likely the latter.
We don't fight, we may disagree, but never fight. We have before, but he just walks away and nothing is resolved. So we try to calmly figure things out. We have gone to bed not speaking to each other, but its a rare occasion. I have slept on the couch because I was mad, but that never solves anything either. When the kids were little or teens, we stood united, we may disagree privately, but we stood united in front of them.
For instance, he wants mustard on his hot dog, really????? I didn't know this until 10 years ago, I thought everyone had ketchup on it, no not him! :)
Another one, he likes a clean house, but on my day off, I can do what I want, didn't know that until 3 years ago. It's my day off from work, so in his mind that means cleaning the house too. I do clean the house, but not always on my day off.
WE love traveling together, but I do enjoy being alone from time to time, so when he goes hunting out west, I'm ok.
His love language is touch and gestures of love. Mine is words. He loves his head rubbed and still holds my hand. I love it when he calls me or now he's learned to text, go figure!
Well, that's all for now. Blessings!!
