Nick gave me this song a few weeks ago. He heard it on television and found me immediately to share the lyrics (via YouTube).
Every now and then he finds a song that makes him think of me. I have been with Nick nearly seven years now. After all that time, he still works to win my heart. I think that’s pretty special.
Nick and I express ourselves differently. He says the first unrefined thing that comes to his mind. I am more reserved; I speak only after I’ve found the right words. This can cause some conflict.
I sometimes (unfairly and often during moments of frustration) label Nick a poor communicator. I couldn’t be more wrong. At times, he responds too impulsively for my comfort, but he knows how I value words. He gives them to me in his way by sharing messages that articulate his feelings.
I could not have found better words to give him than those he gave me just then:
Am, over-come with joy
You’ve, taken me higher, and shown me what love can do
Where would I go, or be, without you?
I am grateful for Nick this Thanksgiving (and every day)…my husband who continually makes me fall in love with him. He keeps our love fresh.
Nick, you communicate just fine.
