Had a busy weekend enjoying the 'new' relationship with BF. Not sure where he found all of this attentiveness, but I LOVE it. It is like dating a new man, but with 2.5 years of history together. I almost hate to speak of it out loud for fear of jinxing it, but it has been so very nice.
So while sitting at one of D's football games this weekend, I receive a text message with photo from BF. And what is the picture of?... BRIT!
Brit's dad was thoughtful enough to send a quick text with a picture of Brit to us, unrequested and unexpected. They have never ever sent us a picture via text before. All of our correspondence has been via email and according to schedule (for the most part).
But yesterday, out of the blue, a cute picture of sweet little Brit playing in the dirt. I wanted to cry tears of joy.
That is exactly what I have wanted. To have the kind of relationship with them that they would automatically thing to share an adorable picture with us, for no other reason than because they know we would love it as much as they do.
Then to top off the evening, we also received an email from Brit's mom with photos of Brit from Halloween. She sent us pictures, not according to schedule, but because she knew we would like to see them, in response to BF's email to them on Halloween. She also sent a nice, quick message.
It is amazing how much peace it also brought my distraught soul. To have an interaction that appears to be friendly and sincere. I can hardly stand how full it makes my heart feel.
Progress, in the right direction for once.
I am so very happy.
