Boy have I missed that woman.
I felt like I was in the midst of a dream the whole time... I'd doze, then awaken to feel her chest rise and fall with each breath and the warmth and coziness of her arms around me. I'd close my eyes and feel the softness of her shirt against my cheek and breathe in her beautiful scent.
The night was short, but the impact it had on me was deep. Between the acupuncture and seeing Monica, I feel like there was a break in the clouds and the sun peeked out to shine on me, giving me the feeling that everything's going to be okay.
I truly believe it will. Things are not going to be easy, but I know I'll make it.
As I watched Monica walk off to the airport terminal a wave of love washed over me. I'm grateful to have that beautiful woman in my life. She's truly amazing.
And now I'm off to nap before work...
