Magic Moments Monday

Mondays, for most people, are the "Ho hum, weekend's over, work is WORK, and can't wait 'til Friday" type of day. My intent is to help us begin our week with something positive, something to hold on to, to get us through the rest of the week. Your entry can be a Scripture verse, a quote, an insight, something that touched your life or changed the way you look at things. I expect some of the first entries to be from the past, until we learn to look each day for those magic moments that remind us how wonderful life really is.

Please leave a comment with a way to find your post, either the link through your signature, or insert the link, so we can all read your experience. Then, on your post, link back to this post, so others visiting you can participate if they'd like.

Well, it's Magic Moments Monday and I am stumped. I guess I haven't been very observant this week, or open to inspiration, because I can't think of a thing. Not that it's been a bad week; it's been rather ordinary and uneventful. Now, I'm not complaining--I'm not one of those who has to be in constant crisis to feel alive, nor do I have to be on top of the world to have a good day. Sometimes a good day is just one in which everything proceeds as it should, a day in which you can feel just comfortable.

Comfortable, as in a marriage with someone you have loved for more than half a lifetime. There's a lot to be said for comfortable. And don't equate it with boring. I am comfortable in the fact that he loves me, that he will be there when I come home from work in the morning, and will be there when I wake up. I am comfortable in knowing he doesn't insist the house be spotless or that I be a gourmet cook (good thing!). I am confortable in knowing he adores our daughter and would never do anything to cause either of us harm. That is comforting as well as comfortable.

Here is how the dictionary defines comfortable:

1. producing or affording physical comfort, support, or ease: a comfortable chair; comfortable shoes.
2. being in a state of physical or mental comfort; contented and undisturbed; at ease: to be comfortable in new shoes; I don't feel comfortable in the same room with her.
3. producing mental comfort or ease; easy to accommodate oneself to or associate with: She's a comfortable person to be with.
4. more than adequate or sufficient: a comfortable salary.

Well, that is how J-Man makes me feel. He tries to make things physically comfortable for me, mentally comfortable, and he is more than adequate or sufficient for me.
This is what I strive to make him feel, too.

It's what I wish for all of you this week: being comfortable.

Ahhh, what a great man. My guy is good that way, too. He knows it's a struggle to get home cooking on the table every day, so he doesn't sweat left-overs or take out.

He's always good for a back rub or letting me take a few hours for myself.

Great post!
