I am so lucky. Yes, that is right, lucky. You are probably thinking, how in the world are you calling yourself lucky? I don't want that kind of luck! No thank you! Well, I am talking about lucky in the diabetic, pain everyday, stress 24/7, and still remaining sane type of lucky. I am realizing through the DOC (diabetic online community) that diabetics have horrible mood swings. Seeing all of these people who deal with a diabetic loved one who just goes from calm to crazy 2.2 seconds. Well, that is the complete opposite of my good ole' hubby. Seriously! 100% the truth. He is so calm and so patient with my nagging duties. It takes a heck of a lot for him to really get mad. I am the one who loses it over simple things. I tend to take out my anger, about the medical issues, on him; something I am working on. Sure he gets annoyed, don't we all? But for him to really lose it, well he has to really be pushed. I think this is why we get along so well. We are literally each others best friend. I think that is so important in a marriage, to be friends AND lovers. I can't imagine a marriage without my best friend. I just don't see how that would work. So yes, I am lucky. Lucky to have a happier marriage than I ever thought possible, despite all of the crap we are given. And I truly believe that since we are such a good team, team effort here, that it will last for a long time. We have actually noticed our marriage grow stronger as more problems are handed to us. So yep, counting my blessings everyday for that.
