Oh that Adele song… it hurts to listen to is because it is something we have all felt at some point in our lives (if you have a pulse and a heart to be broken that is). SNL even recently spoofed it (song and spoof are below if you need a good cry or a good laugh or a good laugh AT a good cry).
I have had my heart broken before.
I have loved and not been loved back.
I have a type of person I thought I was looking for.
I have an image of what marriage is like.
And then there was Adam and my marriage. Thank God.
One of the first evenings I hung out with Adam, before the courting or the dating or the house or the ring… I said to him ‘YOU would be PERFECT for my friend Steph!’
Steph has a type and it is Adam. Big and strong, hairy, funny… but that wasn’t MY type.
Thank God Steph didn’t snatch him up!
What I have, I wasn’t looking for. Heck, when we met (or re-met) I had a bet with a friend to not date anyone for that summer. I wasn’t looking and this is what found me:
I have a man who thinks I am perfect, even when I am really, really not.
I have a man who makes me laugh and isn’t scared to be silly.
I have a man who likes to go out and DO things with me.
I have a man who pushes me to be greater every day.
I have a man who thinks we have a lot more living to do and a lot more things to try.
I have a man who has a wonderful family that love and support me.
I have a man who loves MY weirdo family and my little island.
I have a man who wants to be his absolute best for me and himself.
I have a man who is more handsome every day and smarter every day.
I have a man who loves my dog and has supported me in our toughest year but let me make all the decisions I needed to.
I have a man who will tell me I am wrong.
I have a man who is hairy… but I will have to learn to deal with that.
None of this is what I was actually looking for but I sure am glad I have it.
Now thank you Adele, for making me sad but then making me think. Thank you for making me very, very happy that I never found the someone I thought I was looking for.
Now here is the Adele song if you need a good cry
