I’m married to my best friend:
I’ve always loved to hear the statement, “I married my best friend.” If this statement is true, I believe it makes for a great relationship. Let’s take a moment to think about this statement; how is the relationship you have with someone that is your “real” friend? Usually, a friend is someone you have things in common with; you enjoy being around them; they offer loving and healthy support in every situation; they have little to no problem correcting you when you’re doing wrong and you love each other without judgment. These relationships are formed out of unconditional love.
It’s exciting to even think about this type of relationship when done right. Meeting someone you share all those things with comes as a positive shock to the system and once you add intimacy, you have the definition of “I’m married to my best friend.”
How life really plays out?
This summer met with a lot of ups and even more downs. My Ace (my nickname for Al-Lateef) was mostly out of commission with no end in sight. Yet, we made the best of our summer, what could have been a downer to some only brought us closer. It confirmed what I already knew to be true; we enjoy alone time with one another and can truly motivate the other to get busy on our dreams.
To celebrate the end to a long summer we decided to make plans for the fall, first being a weekend getaway to Washington, DC to see Anthony Hamilton and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial. I have seen Anthony Hamilton almost every time he has come to the Philly area. This is the second time I’ve seen him with my Ace and to tell the truth, it will go down as my favorite Anthony Hamilton show, even without the singing of “Her Heart” or “Broken Man.”
At the MLK National Memorial we viewed the different quotes chosen to border the Stone of Hope. The MLK National Memorial was beautiful; the array of different people made for the perfect back drop. We had the chance to really take it all in that beautiful Sunday afternoon. As we walked back to the car, we decided to view the FDR Memorial as well, another great memorial with many quotes that speak to what we as Americans are dealing with to this day.
