My Place in this World!



Jen, at TuTu's Bliss stopped by yesterday and left me some love so being the good, kind and friendly blogger I am (most of the time) I popped back over and checked out her page. Holy Homecoming! It's good to know that there are people out there like me.

She has a great little meme (and I know I'm not the biggest meme fan) called Two Cents. Could there be a more perfect meme for me? I give my two cents all the time so finally I have a reason!

This week's topic of course is Romance what with V-Day coming and all. So here's my two cents on romance. I think romance evolves. So many people say that the romance is gone in their relationships after they have children. I don't think it's gone. Maybe dusty. Maybe a little more evasive but I don't think it every really "goes."

I think romance evolves. I don't get cards and dates and flowers every week anymore. But I get help with the baths. I get someone else to clean the kitchen now and then. I get a hand putting away the laundry or an afternoon to myself from time to time. Sure! The flowers and dates and monkey love scream "I LOVE YOU!" But those other things whisper "I value you." "I want to help you." "We're in this together."

They also blurt out, "Where did all this water come from?" "Who didn't rinse their dishes before they put them in the dishwasher?" "Honey where's the cheese (that is always in the deli drawer if one would move things around and look for 2 minutes)?" "Why are the underwear all mixed up?" And "When are you coming home? I need a nap"

But you know evolution isn't always pretty. Welcome to the primordial slime of love!

True and funny ~ just how I like it! Don't you just love how men "look" for things! If it isn't RIGHT IN FRONT then don't expect them to find it because heaven forbid they move something! I call it "using man eyes" and I call all men on it that I see doing it!

First, I don't know what's in my blue water but it scares me...

Great post! I love the part about saying they value you. That's the best ♥

So excellent!! You're are correct, true love is found in the whispers.

I love this post.

I'll take the private whispers over the public yells any day. And that was not meant to be as dirty as it may have sounded. ;)

Well said! As long as you continue to be valued and do things together, romance is still alive!
