Each week Ruth Ayres hosts a celebration link-up at her blog, Ruth Ayres Writes. Check out what other bloggers are celebrating this week!
This week I’m celebrating Jake. Together, we celebrated one year of dating on Sunday. When we met, Jake and I both lived in Perry County. Now, neither of us does, and we live four hours apart (when there’s not traffic on the beltway, which is almost never). Skype talks with him are often my favorite part of the day. Even better are the times when we can visit each other.
A few years ago, I spent a lot of time wondering how hard was too hard in a relationship. Jake has re-taught me what a healthy relationship feels like. And that in great ones, you both grow and learn and help each other be who you’re meant to be.
Jake is wonderful at that. He listens. He shares. He is one of the kindest souls I’ve known.
Together, we laugh. We talk. We reflect. We dance. We hike. We love — each other and those around us.
I’d like to celebrate many more years with Jake, but even if that’s not possible, I’m so grateful I get to enjoy this one with him.
