Moments of Clarity

Have you ever been watching a movie, standing in line at the grocery or listening to someone talk and suddenly you think to yourself, "Damn, I'm a lucky woman?" That happens to me a lot. This morning I was standing in the grocery line and I looked at my hubby and my heart flooded with emotion. How did I get so lucky? Well, honestly, it wasn't too long ago that I had a momentary loss of appreciation and did the unthinkable. No, I didn't cheat (just wouldn't happen). I asked my hubby for a divorce.

Okay... many couples get a divorce, but not when you have a great relationship like we did. Even the sex was awesome.  So what the hell was I thinking? I'll tell you, after two babies and fifteen years of togetherness, I stopped appreciating what I had. Yes, I meant to use "I" in that last sentence. My husband was affectionate, giving, kind and sexy. He still is. Every time we passed, whether down the hall, in the kitchen, or in a public place, he'd reach out and touch me. He always told me he loved me. He cooked and cleaned and rubbed my feet many nights.

Do you get what I'm saying yet?

We can have it all and still want more.

Sure, my sweetie and I are together and happier than ever. What changed? There was a short period of time when I didn't have him in my life. Did we both grow from our circumstance? You betcha. The grass is never greener on the other side. He's forgiven me for asking for a divorce, and therefore, I've forgiven him for actually believing me when I said the words.

How does this make me a better writer? I believe in love. I've lived my own romance tale. I'm still living a romantic love life.  I write characters who have lost, whether in love or life. I write second chances. None of my characters are perfect, but they do perfect love.
