The last two days have been challenging. This time it’s nothing to do with Leuk. Just issues that we all share from time to time – mainly financial. Negotiating with people & creditors is wearing. But I’m doing what I can and trying to not focus on those things I have no control over.
We have a house for sale. It is not the one we live in, but a beautiful house directly on a beach. It’s the family home I grew up in. Its difficult to let it go. Very difficult. I think I’ll miss living next to the saltwater even more than I’ll miss the house (which is a lot).
But the sale of the house will allow us to pay off the mortgages we have on the house we are now living in. With Leuk hovering over me, I need to make sure my wife won’t be left with debt and that no bank can touch the house.
I’ll probably be with her for a long time yet, but either way, staying or going, I’ll rest easier knowing she’s secure.
I love her so much. She’s beautiful, charming, and smart. She can be strong and independent when she needs to be. But most of all, she’s my best friend. I’ve known her since kindergarten. We are a part of something bigger than each of us. The ‘We and Us’ is more than the sum of the ‘Me and Her’.
I hope my plans to become completely debt free will happen soon. I grew up in a time when the White Knight still rescued the Damsel in Distress. You remember… back in the day when women actually needed us men.
I want to be her White Knight at least one more time.
