Merry Christmas from the Antagonist Family
L to R : Diminutive One, BA, Hubs, Pubescent One
Doesn't Hubs look great? He's lost 50lbs. He and I are going to begin training to run a marathon in March. YIKES! Doesn't PPO look like a giant? I sometimes forget how big he is until I see a picture of him next to me or his Dad. And I was wearing three inch heels. DO is from my gene pool obviously. I don't really see it, again, until I see a picture of him next to me. He really has my mother's face, and I have often forgotten that. Now however, I sometimes gaze at him for very long moments, remembering how they looked side by side. His face has become my emotional touchstone.
We've had a tough year. But we made it through together. I feel enormously fortunate to have a man by my side who is my best friend as well as my life partner. My boys? They challenge me, as you know if you've been reading BAS for any length of time. But they are really good boys. They have kind hearts and they have inherited their Dad's loving and sensitive nature. I hope one day they each find someone with whom they can share the kind of strength and happiness that Hubs and I have found with one another.
I hope the New Year will bring peace, love and contentment to all of you. I selfishly wish the same for myself. I'm ready for some humdrum living now. Raise a glass and let's make a toast. To "Humdrum" and the happiness it brings.
