I live with a communicator. An expert communicator, actually. In our 23 years of marriage it has been him, more than me, that has wanted to talk about fixing things, about our feelings, and about relationship issues in general. He is exemplary in that way, and sometimes I admit that I forget that. I can be kind of negligent that way.
When we were first married it was hard for me to learn to share so much and so often. I grew up in a really close family, but we didn't necessarily sit for face-to-face "discussions", like my husband did. But over the years I have gotten used to it, and I have learned to really appreciate Geo's openness and willingness to stay close.
Doctor Burton, I love you.
