|I'm weird, I usually type my lists at work.|
We've worked up a menu that includes favorites from both our families and worked out a plan to get it all done at close to the same time. It's turning into quite the togetherness project and I thought it was just so dear when Mr. Wonderful asked me to give him a list for the grocery store.
I felt such a sense of teamwork and comradarie. Through the move, I let myself really depend on Mr. Wonderful - to need him. For all of my separation, single motherhood and much of my marriage I survived by doing as much as I could by myself. Needing made me feel weak and while I did ask for help, it was only when I had no other option and to those that I knew would not refuse.
I am terrified of being vulnerable. And yet I love the reward of opening myself to needing help, to doing life with someone that I love. I'm just getting used to feeling safe in relationship and it is such a sweet treasure. It was a simple thing, he asked for a grocery list and then got the groceries. But it has deeper meaning for me. Togetherness. I couldn't ask for more.
