We had to take down all our posts for a while. We did not realize that to put them back up would repost them in everyone's feeds. We apologize for that. We also will do our best, as life allows, to get the rest of the posts up as soon as possible. :)

Good Days

It's all too good.  I don't want to get my hopes up.  I know rough days will still come.  I know that rocky times will still shake us.  But right now, I FEEL SO GOOD.

The Duke has really stepped up.  I was visiting with family today, and wanted more time with them, and that meant he'd get less time with me.  And he let me.

Our landlord was causing a bit of trouble, and I was feeling guilty.  But the Duke told me it wasn't anything I did, and he didn't want me worrying about it.  He was firm about it, and I was so impressed, and I listened.

The house hasn't been kept up, and I've been freaked out that I've been too sick to clean.  Now the last few days I'm actually feeling better, but had too much to do to be able to clean.  So when the landlord wanted to come in today, I was too embarrassed and said I'd rather he not come in.  The Duke asked afterwards how he could help when I'm sick.  That he doesn't like when I'm stressed over how the house looks, and so he wants to do more when I'm sick.  I told him he already does a lot, but he told me he is in charge now, and that also means helping when I can't.  WOW

He also gave me a chore list for tomorrow.  Hugged me through out the evening like crazy, joked with me, and pretended in front of family after a joke that he was taking me into a bedroom for a quicky!!! *BLUSH*  He's so much fun and showing me so much love.  He's never showed me so much love, so much enjoyment just to be around me.

I don't have much to share about what I've learned over the past few days, but I've been doing more studying, reading a new book actually, and am excited to see where this goes with the Duke and I. :)  I am so blessed. :)

 I hope you had a good April Fool's Day.  I didn't do anything, but got to hear about some good pranks that happened this morning. :)

    1. Thank you, Callie. :) I guess that is so true. If all we write about is our bad days, we will get encouragement from other's comments, but it's good to see the good that comes for DD as well. :) I'll keep writing about good days then when I have them. :)

    1. Oh, thank you, Roz. I am happy. :) Still recovering, but I do feel so loved and cared for. I've never felt this safe, nor important. And I can't stop cuddling with him at night now. Seriously, NEVER did this before. It was, this is your space, this is mine, I need sleep. Now I want to sleep right next to him! Not sure what happened, but it's nice.:)

  5. I think you already told us what it was you learned that you absolutely positively love your Duke to pieces.
    It's great when we can help when our spouses when they are down.

    1. Well Bob, hopefully not to too many pieces, I need something to snuggle with after all. ;) You know, it really is awesome that you guys can help us out of our funks. Before DD the Duke could not do this, no matter waht he tried. Now he knows he holds the key. :)

  6. It's awfully neat isn't it Es May! Once they start to really lead they start serving us in all these unexpected ways.

    1. Hey Susie, you know, I did almost fall over when he started serving me in other ways, when he offered to clean more when I'm sick, even though I know he doesn't like to clean, especially after a long day at work... I was so touched. I tried to tell him he shouldn't have to help, but he said it was worth it if it kept me from getting worried about people stopping in unexpectedly. What a guy. :) :)

Please feel free to leave any comments, but I do ask you to be kind. We go into this with eyes wide open after months of prayer, and a peace in our hearts that this is the right choice before God for our marriage. I am open to questions from those who wonder why we made this choice, but I would ask for no personal attacks. Thank you. :)
