I feel like I’ve been on hiatus from this site, soo many ladies getting engaged and closer to it! I have been working on disaster relief these past few days and taking care of my poor SO who broke his ankle when he slipped on ice. He’ll be out of commission for 6 weeks.
Its made us really have to sit around and enjoy each other’s company, talk about things, and be thankful for all the things we have. one woman in the disaster had just gotten engaged the day before, then he died in the storm. It really puts all sorts of things into perspective.
I love him very much and really am just happy to spend the time I have with him, because it might have been his neck instead of his ankle. Its morbid I know, but after seeing and talking to all sorts of people that I have in the past week, I’m just very thankful to be his girlfriend. Wife can come whenever it does.
I want to be the best girlfriend I can be now, because my poor man is so unhappy because he can’t drive, walk, bike or really go out of his apartment except for work due to being miserable. That’s really it for me Bees, have a great day, enjoy the sunshine (where I am it is anyhow) and just rememeber that although its really hard to wait, the time will come when he realizes that you are worth every moment of the rest of his life. We have to focus on the now, because its all we have.

I’m sorry that your boyfriend broke his anke, but you’re right — it’s importnat not to live in the future but to live in the moment. Reminds me of that famous lyric from John Lennon, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I hope he heals quickly and is back on his feet (literally) soon! And that is awesome you are working on disaster relief.

That is such a fantastic attitude to have. We all would be better off if we thought that way. I try to think poitively like that when I’m stuck in traffic because of an accident. It’s better to be sitting there than to be the one who was in the accident. I hope he gets to felling like his old self again really soon!

Im the one who is running to the accident and holding c-spine while calling in for an ambulance. Its nice that its nothing too incredibly serious. I had a lady at work this winter who had 5 broken ribs, punctured liver, pneumothorax, broken hip in 2 places, a flail chest and Im missing one other thing. Anything smaller than that I feel lucky. Hopefully he can start getting out of the blues. I remember my mom being off her foot for 3 months once and walmart was her favorite place to go since they had the powered carts.

Oh the poor thing!! I hope he feels better very soon – it must suck for him to not be able ot move around like he used to!
Injuries and illness can really bring a couple together
