My Steady Love!

I’m my quest to conquer every state park in the state of Virginia, my hubby came along beside me to help me to conquer my goal. He became my camping buddy and my driver without me asking. This is my Steady love …
I think we have conquered about six state parks and the memories are so precious to me. Most of them are super funny and a handful are frustrating. Surprisingly, we learned a thing or two about leadership and teamwork. In camping, each has his or her role and responsibilities. We did not realize this at first and we made some major mistakes. Nothing we could not survive but we did learn quickly and lessons were learned on each trip. We also had to learned when there were things for both of us to handle …such as putting up the tent ‘together’. This activity took a special kind of communication because I loose interest in putting things together really quickly. All the information was in his head. When he would say ‘put this in there sweetie, hold this sweetie, no, no babe, don’t put that there’ my response would always be ‘why’. And I would stand there and debate every move with him … (If he could find me). He was so patient with me though. I actually realized I was not so easy to lead or to follow. Then I asked myself would I be the same way with my work boss or girls group or work team. The answer was no. I had to figure out how to conquer my goal and how to let him lead me there. I can now joyously report that I can put the tent together by myself if I had to. WE can get our campsite set up in under an hour!
I apologized to him for being so difficult and thanked him for his patience and not driving off and leaving me standing in the woods. His reply was, I knew you would come around and make these trips fun, enjoyable and full of memories. You always do that.❤️ He is my Steady love …
On our anniversary (December 22) he reserved a cabin in Chippokes State Park and presented me with a bracelet that had a charm from every state park we visited so far. On the back of each charm is a memory of that stay. Such a thoughtful gift.

For years I’ve called my hubby ‘My steady Love’ because he is always right where I need him. I’m a gypsy girl and I need that steady grounded person who allows me to be a gypsy but under his protection and guidance. Last year India Arie made an album with a song entitled Steady Love and yep, I sang it to my man … Off key and all!😂
The words to her song are below! She is actually one of my favorite artists. Love her messages.
The way that he looks at me when he holds my hand
He wants everyone to know I’m his woman and he is my man
We can talk about anything, he’s got nothing to hide
He’s not afraid of his feelings, he’s not a slave to his pride
I have never met a man that I wanted to be his wife
And then he came along, it’s so natural to make a life
‘Cause he’s a perfect compliment, ’cause I’m a boss in my world
But when we’re together, he just makes me feel like his girl
He puts every other man I’ve ever known to shame (known to shame)
I just wanna be with him, talk to him, sleep near him, walk with him
Be with him (every day)
I wanna be lovers and friends and mother his children
Make breakfast on Sunday and fight and then make up again
‘Cause if life’s gonna be crazy anyway
I wanna do it with him
Ooh, steady love (hey)
Ooh, oh, steady love
He’s a good father, he’s a good cook
He loves his basketball and he loves a good book
I’ll tell you how I know he’s the perfect one for me
‘Cause he’s a warrior in the streets, but he’s a king in the sheets
He’s givin’ me love, so steady
He touches my heart, now I’m ready
He touches my soul and my spirit
He’s givin’ me love, so steady (love me so steady)
