It is rare that you find a person who stands next to you no matter how bad things get. It is rare that you find someone who is as honest, full of heart, and brilliant all in one person that will never be the sexual love of your life but still be one of the greatest loves of your life!
Almost 20 years ago, during some of the worst moments of my life, I met our “Lisa”. She stood next to me during some of the worst moments of my life. She stood next to me while I was marrying a guy she told me I shouldn’t marry. She stood next to me when I had my 3 youngest children. She stood next to me while I was almost homeless, loosing my mind, breaking under the abuse… She was always a smart, hardass, blessing in our lives. She even became my youngest daughters godmother.
I have never been as good a person to her as she has/is to us which has, over the past few years, started to bother me. Yes, she understands I have certain limitations… BUT it doesn’t change the fact that I feel angry with myself for not being able to be a better person to her life. To give her more. To do more for her. To appreciate her more with BIG gestures!
How do you show someone how important they are to your family when you are ill equipped to do that? Words are NOT enough! Nothing could ever be enough for all she has been to our family!
We love our “Lisa”!!!
