I’m getting what I’ve always wanted.
It’s not a new car, or a new home, a larger paycheck, the Pulitzer Prize, or the Drummer of the World award.
I am getting love, esteem, acceptance. I’m getting my soul fed from the one who matters most in my life – my wife.
Never have I experienced this love and esteem to the degree that I know it today. My soul is fed, my cup is full, and my sense of self-worth grows every day all because of our relationship.
This is a personal post – almost too personal for your eyes. Yet it is significant enough that I feel it is worth sharing.
I’ve had this quote in my files for some time now, and today it demanded my attention.
Did you get what you wanted?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the earth.
I can call myself ‘beloved’ because of the one who loves me most, cherishes me, esteems me, believes in me, and loves me as I am, not as I should be. And I’m writing about my love – Carolyn.
The way we do life is such a soul-satisfying experience. The way we talk about the large and small events of life, and the way we laugh together … well, it’s meeting a need to the largest degree I’ve ever known.
I am esteemed and loved.
That is what I have always wanted.
