During a holiday work party, I went up to my husband to give him a hug when a co-worker asked me, "Do you know you are the luckiest woman in this room?".
I knew what she meant but still I asked "why?". She went on to tell me how wonderful my husband is and how I should love and cherish him. (What made her think I don't love and cherish him?) As we left she made her way to him and tried to go in for.... for well, I don't know what.... but she got a half hug at best.
My family says I think too much about things. I don't know if that's a ME thing or a woman thing... whatever... I couldn't stop thinking of this woman. I mean that's pretty ballsy to hit on someone's husband not only in front of them but USING them.
Another thing my family says is - I'm always focusing on HOW things are said - and it's HOW she said this that really bugs me. I mean I know my husband is great.... but why am I the lucky one? He's pretty damn lucky too.
She also made reference to her boyfriend who she feels is imature. This actually cracks us both up, as my husband still finds bodily noises funny and is entertained by SpongeBob and Disney.
No one is the perfect package. Relationships take work. Don't wish for what someone else has because you really don't know what you're wishing. We've put hard work into our marriage. There are things that we love about each other and things that annoy each other. We embrace the things we love and work through the other junk.
But really, how did she know?..... I am the luckiest woman.
