19 YEARS! Where or where have those years gone?

(1/8) > >>


Tomorrow (Saturday--July 15th) is our (damn fool and mine) anniversary. 

July 15th, 1987, we met for the first time.  I was wearing a blue blazer, color coordinated shirt and tie, and slacks.  He was wearing a t-shirt and blue jeans.  His hair was BIG and permed.  He had a mustache.  He was drop dead gorgeous.  I knew instantly.  There was no question, he was the one for me.

This morning, as he was giving me my Fuzeon injection, my eyes strayed into the bathroom mirror, where I saw our reflection.  We've aged.  It shows, there is no question.  But what I saw in that reflection was the same man I saw 19 years ago tomorrow.  Full dark head of hair.  Classic handsome features.  Tall and lean.  With an ass to die for.

I'm not just lucky.  I am truly blessed. 

Life is good if you want to know the truth.  Throughout those entire 19 years, my HIV/Aids, has been a part of our relationship (he was with me every step of the way, even when death was predicted to be coming in the next 12 - 18 months), but it hasn't been the definition of our relationship. 

I'm not just lucky.  I am truly blessed.

Tomorrow, we'll clean the bathroom, we'll mow the lawn, we'll fuss and fume at one another.  Tomorrow evening we'll go to Ruth's Chris for a fantastic dinner.  At some point, we'll raise our glasses and look in one another's eyes and without speaking we'll say. . . . .

I'm not just lucky.  I am truly blessed.


Damn Rocky I was 16 years old and going into the 11th grade of high school. Time really flys by.
