Somethin’ lovely

wedding bwMost folks who know my husband know him as the quieter, gentler half of this couple. That’s often all they know of him, so they think of him as “gentle” and laugh about how he once cried on national TV.

Last night, I came inside after a confrontation with our neighbors and explained to him what had just happened. His face got stormy, following which he very quietly put on his shoes and went outside.

He returned six minutes later to explain what had just happened. It all madeΒ sense, and all will be okay going forward. I was grateful that he’d had the conversation.

But his face was steel, just steel, when he relayed his starting message to our neighbors: “Don’t you ever talk to my wife like that again.”

I can hold my own. If you read my blog, you know this. I have held my own since I was very small, so that it astonishes me when anyone else speaks to protect me.

Because of all this, I sometimes forget how seriously he takes his vows of for-better-or-worse.

He loathes confrontation, but he loves me more.

That’s somethin’, folks.

That’s somethin’ lovely.

      πŸ˜€ I often know to be thankful, but yesterday really, really knew. He was very matter of fact about it all, which just … made me very glad for our vows, and this different-than-once-imagined life of mine!

      I thought he was going out to his car, so … “awesome” was pretty much what I thought when he stepped back into the house and said, “Here’s the rundown …” πŸ™‚

    Lovely indeed. It’s comforting to know people like that exist.

      They do. By existing, hopefully, they encourage others to exhibit these traits more often. πŸ™‚

    It’s amazing what people will do and go through for who they love. He sounds as awesome as you do. Y’all are epic together.

    It really is, I still find it amazing when someone sticks up for me. I hope all is now ok with your neighbours.

      I was flabbergasted for a moment, and then recalled another incident where he took a similar stance. He prefers to be quieter, but the fact he prefers that doesn’t mean the other’s not possible!

      The present really is not the past. Thank goodness for change.

      I think things will be okay with our neighbors now. The last two nights were blissful, which is great after less blissful three months preceding. Phew.

    This is too sweet. You and your husband have put the biggest smile on my face. What a beautiful family. It’s crazy how I can feel the love you have for each other all the way from California to Florida just through a computer screen πŸ™‚
