My Arvid...

Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a man's last romance...

I was only gone for 3 days, but judging by Arvid's reaction you would think I left him alone for months.  You gotta love this man.  He is a one of a kind and I am lucky to have him.

When I first met Arvid, I never realized what a romantic he is.  He has a way with words I would have never believed.  I always thought (maybe wrongfully), that woman were the romantics in a relationship, but everyday he proves me wrong and I adore him for this.

I was gone for just a few days, and even though Arvid was busy, busy everyday (nothing new here :), he always made time to call me early in the mornings to wish me a good day and in the evenings to tell me about his.  Being at a family gathering most of the times I missed his call.

We have been married now for 11 years and every moment with him is different.  He keeps me laughing, smiling and always wondering what comes next.  I have to say that he says the same thing about me.  Guess that's what makes a relationship special.  You never take each other for granted and you always keep each other guessing as to what comes next.  Fun!

Arvid never misses an opportunity to tell me and show me how much he loves me.  He never misses any of our special dates and trust me according to Arvid there are many of those.  With him life is a celebration and one I look forward to.

I'm older now. I think I'm beginning to understand what life is, what romance is, and what a relationship means.  Arvid is my second chance in life.  One that was unexpected, unplanned and totally AWESOME!  

Sometimes I think that due to our backgrounds, there was speculation that it would not last.  I have to say that due to those differences, we have something extra special.  As my dad would say, "you have something of value"

Being away for a few days was good, but being home again is always the best.  Arvid is always telling me I am the best thing to happen to him, but I believe that he is the best thing to happen to me.

New York was great. It was so much fun to see everyone.  I am really happy I went and even happier I went alone.  Yes I love the man, but I also know where to draw the line.  Yes, in a relationship you have to recognize each others limits and respect it.

A relationship is like a couple holding hands. Although the hands are different and imperfect, they still fit together perfectly...
