Things are working out

School is winding up nicely. I'm making progress on my research. My personal life has been much too interesting over the past few days, and that's why I've been feeling up and down. Thanks to everyone who called, texted, and e-mailed support... <hugz> You rock.

The past few weeks have been difficult, but we seem to have cleared the worst and have come to a new understanding. It amazes me that even though I kept trying to walk away and even though he was also under so much stress from business, he refused to give up, and he refused to let me give up.

Maybe this is a big part of what love is. It's not so much about having lots of high points—those will come with time—but being able to deal with the low points. And day by day, week by week, month by month, we're learning.

From "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran:

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

Besides, there are high points too. <grin> I just have to blog more of them so I'll remember.

This isn't an LJ post, so please e-mail me your insights or use the form on my page... =)
