Sometimes, He Surprises Me

By Bren @Virtual_Bren

There are days…… my man surprises me;

There are days….. I’d like to knock his block off;

There are days….. I remember why I married him;

And there are those days….. that I simply think I was drunk when I got married;

Then there are days like yesterday…… when my man totally surprises me!


 You have to understand where I’m coming from.

My hubs and I married in 2004 at the ripe age of 36.  My first marriage and my hubs second.

See, he was already damaged goods when I got him. Add over 21 years in the military (USAF) that included several tours to the “sandbox” and yet you have a more damaged man.

However, I still married him despite these flaws…… especially considering I was not perfect either.


Over the years, I’ve tried very hard to understand the way he thinks;

His lack of celebrating holidays;

His lack of emotions;

And lack of support………. to me……….. when I really need it.

And knowing damn well, if I was a military member………….. he’d be right there for me.


But somehow, I continue to love this man;

Hate this man;

Wish him to move out to shed;

Welcome him into my arms;

And thank the day he became my best friend;

The man I’ll grow old with;

The one I’ll have wheelchair races with;

or cane fights, at this rate.


Yes, Sometimes He Surprises Me


I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!

(p.s. Thought I'd share my favorite get my sexay groove on song with ya'll... think I'll get laid tonight? hehe)


Happy Valentine’s Day!!
