My grandmother always gave me the best advice, off the top of my head I can think of three pearls of wisdom that have helped me: the most important relationship is the one with yourself, you can never really know someone else, and when you marry it should be to someone who brings out the best in you. I am so thankful that I listened. I am reminded daily how lucky I am to have a partner so loyal, honest, and caring. He's my hunter, my barometer, my heart, and my space heater.
I know beyond a doubt that Tarzan is the perfect life mate for me. Without even a grimace he cleans up squished bugs, fresh vomit, and all unidentifiable messes. He never shys away from explaining the most difficult words or concepts to Cheetah. His ability to define words like sexy and explain theories like time travel in a way that a 5 year old can comprehend is astounding. He puts his own needs and wants on the back-burner time and time again, his sacrifices are never mentioned and his back is often left patless.
