You know those moments when someone can say or do something that just fills up your soul and heart, immeasurably. When those moments come it isn't until that moment in time you remember how nice it is to be recognised and validated. Last week the Ben was on annual leave from work and he gave me two such moments.
Recently I've had a few people ask if the Ben reads my blog, in reply I'd chuckle and say:
It doesn't bother me to say no, I appreciate that not everything I say and or do is of interest to him. But he surprised and enlightened me whilst on our road trip last week, when I was sharing some of my blog ideas out loud. Then out of no where he announces to me:
"Babe I just have to say when I read your blog, I mean when I have read your blog, both of them, I've always been impressed. You write well and I find what you're saying engaging. I'm really proud of you and that you're doing something that makes you happy. You're happy, we're happy, it's great."
I was utterly flattered and filled up by his words.
Us on our wedding day, I was a few months shy of 21.
