What I Want Is What I’ve Got

Just a little fair warning, this one may be long!

This weekend was fantastic! Saturday was spent in lines for some roller coasters at Cedar Point with my niece. Sunday, Cletus and I went to church, went for a bike ride at Orion Oaks, then went to his place to watch some football and hang out.

While at Cedar Point, I messaged Cletus back and forth throughout the day just to say hi, or let him know the plans for the day, and what time I might be home. Well, after 7 hours of practically running around the park, Cass and I called it a day. I called Cletus and said, “I should be home around 11, 11:30 if you want to be there. If not, that’s fine too.” Well, he decided to meet me at my place. When I walked in the door after dropping Cassandra off, Cletus was laying on my couch in jeans and a plain white t-shirt, and it got me thinking…

A while back, I started thinking about what I really want in a man. Here’s what I came up with:
I wanted a guy who would listen to me, talk to me, respect me, be honest with me, and treat me like his queen – like the most important part of his life. Someone that could look sexy in jeans and a plain white t-shirt, and cleans up nice. A guy that would do anything to make me happy, appreciate me, cherish me, and most of all, LOVE ME.

Well folks, I have all that and more with Cletus. When I walked through that door Saturday night, I thought “What a beautiful person inside and out. How did I manage to land this one?!?” He’s so perfect for me…quite literally my other half. I’m so incredibly totally and completely in love with this man. So much more than I ever thought possible… It almost brought tears to my eyes to think about what he has done for me. Sure we’ve had a few rough times, but we’ve worked through it and it only makes me love him that much more…if that’s even possible!!

I’ve had a few long-term relationships that I thought were love…man, was I wrong. Maybe it was, but not nearly as strong as this. I see him, I smile. I think of him, I smile. I hear his voice, I smile. I get a message from him, I smile. He completes me. 100%. I have no regrets about my past anymore. Everything that happened to me only happened to bring me to him. I wanted so badly for things to work out with one person, but it wasn’t meant to be. To quote a country song: “Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.” I’m so thankful that things have gone the way they have for me. If my life had been on a different path, I might not have met my true love…

I love you Cletus

"I'd go hungry I'd go black and blue. I'd go crawling down the avenue. There aint nothing that I wouldn’t do. To make you feel my love. Go to the ends of the earth for you. Make you happy, make your dreams come true. To make you feel my love."

I know I don't always say the right things, and that I don't always do the right things, and that I am far from perfect. I do know that I love you more than life itself. I would do anything for you. I love you with all my heart!!!
