Who can you depend on?

I've been taught all my life not to depend on anyone, but as the world grows colder and I grow older, the thought often enters my mind about how strange and lonely the world would be without Treesa in my life. I thank God that He's trusted me with her all these years and that she Loves me the way she does. She keeps me warm at night, rubs my shoulders when they're sore and scratches my back when it itches (...even sometimes when it doesn't), and helps to keep me plugged-in and grounded in those times when I'm feeling low, cause when the going gets rough, it's an Awesome feeling of assurance to know you have someone there with you, in your corner and you're not alone.

She says I do the same for her, but for one reason or another I don't buy it. I never do enough for her. I feel she always does more. She's my Lover, Best Friend, & Soul Mate, and to be totally transparent: I don't know just what I'd do without her.

I can depend on TEK to create threads like this on a regular basis. And we do a lot of that sex stuff... but don't tell Treesa!

(jk, she's into it)

Is Treesa another word for Lithium?

Good for you for noticing all this about your beloved, and you are both very very blessed. It's a very difficult thing to find that sort of love in this world, and I'm happy for you. I for one love what you wrote here.

I have only been with my boyfriend for two years, but I feel the same way about him, especially the feeling that they always do more. I feel very spoiled, you know? Very blessed.

I don't know why a couple of silly chumps like you and me have been blessed with the people in our lives that we have, but I am so thankful, and it sounds like you are too. That's all you can do, is be thankful.

My cat all the time and the occasional girlfriend...

And as far as family goes I would have said my parents up until about a year ago. Due to a situation or two...now I'll just
say my sister is the only one I can rely and count on.

Pretty much just my wife and my in-laws... And I can depend on my dog shitting in the back room and thus making me absolutely dog-shit crazy.

Nobody. People disappoint, don't care and make excuses for themselves.

I can depend on THEEK making me smile with every new thread he posts. You're a sweet soul, and Treesa is a lucky woman.

I have a tool shed full of dependable items. Also, I can depend on Nick to keep me in check so I don't get into trouble with my tool shed full of items.

There is not just ONE person in this world for each of us.

Death happens, and too many people give up after they lose their soul mate. Happiness is within yourself and your relationship with God. Other people are important, but one particular other person is not essential.

No, but it's awfully nice to have.

There's no reason to stop with one, either.

...let me see if I can put this into words that make sense. (FAT CHANCE, I KNOW! )

'I don't know just what I'd do without her.'

That T, is not actually a 'Train of Thought' (for me, at least). It is rather a 'Figure of Speech'.

Examples:

"It's raining cats and dogs" means it's raining intensely.
"I'll give you a piece of my mind" means the speaker will state a frank opinion.
"Break a leg" is a saying from theatre meaning "Good luck."
"Butterflies in your stomach" figuratively describes nervousness.
"You want a piece of me?" means "Do you want a fight?"
"You're climbing the ladder to success!" means "You are doing a decent job at trying to achieve success."

'I don't know just what I'd do without her' means I Love her immensely (Of boundless or immeasurable size or extent) and don't want to think about being without her.

But I hear ya, and I know the drill. It's well known that we all have our opinions and I can respect that. However, (at my stage in life) I am of the opinion that this one particular other person is essential to 'me' and is without doubt, above and beyond the rest.

Hey. I lost my Mom and many folks down my road of my life. I've also had my share of relationships and break-ups and know all too well the pain that comes with loss, and how to 'get over it', or carry on, and it was the Lord that got me through it all.

You see, I got so tired of dating, and I had more than my share of 'various babes', so one day I actually prayed for one woman that I could spend the rest of my life with. It took nine months of praying, with no dating, and finally I received Tree. That was some 30 years ago.

She is the answer to my prayers. She is the one He provided. So to me, she stands out as being different and even superior to other women, and I'm more than content with that.

She is enough.

'My name is...

-Pablito Antonio Tres

You killed my Father. Prepare to die.'

(What the HELL is THAT all about??? )

-THEEKSAKE!

What Miss V said, and I hope you show your post to Mrs THEEK, and also tell her often.
