a real man


apparently, "manhood" is getting hard to figure out...at least, this is what i hear from "They". is a real man sensitive, or stoic? romantic or rugged? giving or demanding? (sorry, i ran out of alliterations) i can't answer that question, but i can tell you this. my day yesterday was made possible by a REAL man.


first, he let me sleep in a bit while he made breakfast for The Girls. Then, he sat on the couch with me (monday is his day off) and we watched 'the amazing race' while i drank my coffee. then he drove us over to the church, where he stacked a hundred chairs and rolled out tables and helped me set everything up for a women's meeting i lead last night...and he did it with great cheerfulness and energy. then he took me out to lunch, and spent the afternoon fixing - yes, thank you, Curtis!! FIXING - my laptop, debugging vista (which has been a bitch, if you'll excuse my language) so that this morning everything is running %100! then - oh, you thought he was done? no no - i left for my thing, he fed the girls, and then he came to the meeting at the church, and did the childcare for me, since i had tried and tried and couldn't find anyone else to do it. and while i stayed around to say goodnight and talk to women, he brought the girls home and put them to bed, and i came home at 9 to peace and quiet. and it was his day off. all day he worked alongside me, making it possible for me to do the things i had to do, and giving me the gift not only of his strength, intellect and kindess, but also of his company. i could not be the woman i want to be without him. Curtis, YOU are a real man. thank you.
