not enough credit

Got a note from the boy on facebook asking why I only ever write about him if I have a complaint. That made me feel pretty bad because, although I don't write about him in every entry, I do tend to focus on the negative things that have happened when I do write about us. That's not very fair. Blogging, at least for me, can sometimes be a way to vent (to no one in general) and sort out my thoughts but it isn't good when you don't give the people in your life enough credit for putting up with your bullshit all the time. So here's how I really feel:

I think my boyfriend is quite possibly the best man I have ever met (with the sole competition from my dad). He is always slow to anger and quick to listen. When I have down times, like I did earlier this week, I know I can count on him for support. I really admire the optimism and compassion that he faces the world with every day. He is the ONLY person I know who always has something good to say about everyone, and does so often. He goes out of his way to do special things for me, like getting John Furtado to sing a song for our one year, or e-mailing me poems. When I got back from Europe he not only picked me up, but set up a special surprise for me at my house.

So you see, it is not very fair that I have only written about my passing irritations with him, which as we all probably know are due in large part to my moodiness. I will try to do better in the future to also write about all the awesome and sweet things he has done for me, a list which far outweighs any small complaints.
