On Sunday Xing Fu tried to off me...
Yep, I was trimming the jib during a race & I was grinding in when all of a sudden we were scuppers in the water & me, well I was almost up to my waist--at least one leg was. Xing Fu was on main & had forgotten the traveller so we were heeled way over. And then later, since he didn't get rid of me that way-- He hit me with the boom...tenacious aren't I??
But, I appreciate the attempt--but I appreciate this even more:
"I asked my girlfriend: How did your dad show your mom that he loved her? Her response: "Ceaseless appreciation of everything she did for him. He treated everything she did as if it were a surprise, as if it were the first time he'd ever had her chili or smelled her perfume. He noted every routine kindness. And he loved her the same way, consistently."
From Xing Fu: "Looking at my tie earlier today, I smiled at your helping me trim the thread. A loving gesture."
"I hope we always smile together", is what I wrote back.
He says these things to me a lot. Just makes me remember the dating mishaps & how I always had hope that the right person was out there for me & that through it all I'd always kept a positive attitude.
How great that I have a man who isn't afraid to share his appreciation with me & how incredible is it that he loves to sail. He may exasperate me sometimes, piss me off, & frustrate me too, but he is, as we approach the year & a half mark, my best friend--I am thankful for all that he does to enhance my life. Yikes, am I a mushy one right now!
