Okay, I’m getting a little tired of everyone teasing me for the last week. Conner said I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve, so everyone knows exactly how I feel about him. I can’t help it. I’m in love with the man and there is nothing I can do to keep from smiling at him and loving him the way I do. It’s just too bad that everyone else knows too. I hate being the topic of discussion. Like this is a news flash.
When I first met him, I had no idea that I could fall in love with a man the way I did with him. He tore down all of my defenses and made me stronger for it. I now know that I can show my love for him without embarrassment. Yes, that’s me, the one that sounds grown up.
Technically I am grown up, but emotionally I was quite young. I had many things to learn about being in love. And Blair was the one that taught me. I’m so damn grateful to him for teaching me to be happier, wiser and stronger. He gets all of the credit, I however fought him every step of the way. But Blair being Blair, never gave up and he bullied me into understanding just how much I loved him. As if I didn’t already know.
He’s walking into the bullpen and my heart honestly feels like its pounding. I get this way every time I’m around him these days. I’m in love and glad to be alive. I thank my lucky stars for my Guide, my partner, my lover and my friend.
Now I need to stop smiling.
And I for one, couldn’t be more grateful.
