we've been together forever.
we've talked about marriage for years.
and yeah, that's after many years of saying neither
one of us ever wanted to get married again.

so how is it that it all hit me totally out of the blue,
i was completely surprised.....and completely
knocked to my knees??

we've been hitting some pretty deep stuff lately.
and yesterday was no exception.
stuff that needs to get cleaned out of the way to
make space for real love.
'more real love' i should say. as i know we already
have heaps.

it's not easy stuff. and we've been in the middle
of a lot of it lately.

and there, right in the middle of some heavy duty cleaning,
he asked me.

i was stunned.
and so incredibly moved.

and this part....the ring........
i'm really not a materialistic person.
i don't care if there's a ring or not.

but there is a ring.
and it's not just a ring.

it's completely beautiful, made just for me,
inscribed with something just for me, the entire
thing is completely with me in mind.

i've never had anyone do anything like this for me in
my entire life. i can't even express what his doing
that means to me.

i was and am just stunned.
i keep looking at it.

and i keep thinking of the things he said yesterday.

and i can't seem to focus anywhere.

my heart just keeps melting.

how cool is that?

way cool.

had to share.......

I'm stunned, too, Ms. 'I'm never getting married.'
So happy for you.
Did you set a date yet?

Thank you for sharing this part of it with us. Of course it would be very special, personal and perfect. :) And a ring. sigh Wow. I can so relate to the feelings you describe, Ter. I still feel that way about one has ever treated me the way he does. I'm so utterly happy for you.

Smiling and crying at the same time
I love it when romance and love and hard work and sharing and communication and play and more love all comes together for a happy ending. I KNOW you will live your dreams together happily ever after.

What, what???? For REAL???

And a Ring...a ro-freakin'-mantic is that!

Need photos of your hand...just to see if it's covered with stars.

Already can see how your heart is looking!

All the best, Ms. Terri...All the BEST!!!

Oh Terri, I am crying tears of joy for you! This brings back so many memories for me! After my first marriage ended, I swore, and really really meant it, that I would NEVER get married again. Then four years later, along comes this guy....this guy that not only puts up with my ptsd "stuff", he loves me thru it....I can relate to some of what you are feeling right now, and so incredibly happy for you! Congratulations! Bonnie
