A year ago today I waited patiently for the arrival of my most favorite earthly gift...
My husband :-).
Aside from that, there werent any festivities going on in my/our day. I remember it like it was yesterday. I woke up early to clean the house and to go out shopping for anything I needed before he got there. I went to get a pedi/mani and came home to nap.
After he'd left the US, I was unable to track his location anymore. Smart but annoying. At some point I was thankful I couldnt track it. A mere computer glitch of me no longer being able to see the plane would have sent me to the crazy house wondering where my love was! lol.
My Emirati friend Ahmed so kindly gave me a pretty neclace to wear when we picked him up and volunteered to take me to the airport that evening to get him. I was calm and happy. I had a hint of butterflies in my stomach. It was almost like we were teenagers again. We got there and I gave them his visa and learned that the plane had indeed landed. I looked around for an inconspicuous place to stand and watch. I wanted to see him the moment he walked out the door but I didnt want him to see me. Ahmed left to give us privacy.I thought that was nice and cute of him,lol.
After what seemed like forever, he emerged. I went the long way to get to him, ensuring my invisibility. I rushed to him and kissed him on his cheeks (Id been here long enough to know that wasnt going to be a problem,lol) and hugged him so tightly. I was happy for him to join me on this journey and appreciated the time we had apart (from the middle of Oct to Dec 25).
I dont know how many Christmas' we will be here but it is my desire that each one get better and better!
