    After work yesterday I got to talking to a coworker who I have only ever spoken to briefly.

    He was showing another coworker photos of his cabin set in a forest down by a lake. He explained how he restored it, added an extension and used the timber from his property to make an outdoor deck. The before and after shots looked amazing.

    It was a big job and I asked him if he got any professional help.

    He said that he and his partner of 35 years had done it all themselves.

    Having a long term partner help you rebuild an old cabin against a backdrop of amazing Canadian scenery..

    I turned to mush boys!


    Do you have similiar stories?

    While I can not recall at this exact moment an event occuring just like this, I could see myself responding in such a way. I am a rather emotional person and am very empathetic so I will feel and infer the feelings of the other quite easily and thus can feel "mushy" as you describe yourself feeling when you heard that story. I don't like feeling that way though because my emotions are powerful and it's straining to have to hold them in, which I would have to do so in a situation like this lest I act in an unexpected and or innapropriate manner.

    lol, wish granted. When Bill's Dad was dying, Bill went and spent one of Dad's last nights at home on a foam by Dad's bed. I stayed in town at our house and looked after it and the dogs. Bill later told me that what got him through was wondering what I was doing and thinking, and imagining what I looked and smelled like and sounded like. Hearing this was an experience that will always stay with me.

    I have several ones from my fiance and I and most recently my now ex bf Chris. he really reminded me that I am worth of all thoes things I hold in my heart and that I have all it takes to get them. I've had a lot things happend in my life that sometimes I can't quite explain why they have happend. How many times someone has to walk through hell and back is beyond me but I'll never forget the words he said to me. He was going through a lot of personal problems and I think that is what attributed to us breaking up, but I was trying to help him through it during the course of our relationship. A jack ass friend of his wanted to watch a movie and a scene in it got to me because it reminded me of when I lost my fiance and even though I am beyond it... I have my days and my moments. He turned the movie off, got me a tissue and prayed. He came back and told me. "I hope you know how much I adore you. I just prayed thanking God for all the good and bad that has even happened in your life because you're my blessing and I get to reap the benefit. You're worth more than you ever give yourself credit for and I hope you'll see it." I miss my friendship with Chris more than anything but I'd be lying if I didn't say I still love him and miss him thoes words. If God or Santa is listening... I don't ask for a lot but i'd like him for Christmas.

    My partner of almost 6 years, Patrick has to go to Italy for a work conference in April. He decided that we would make a trip out of it. He knows Italy is my favorite country. He told me over the phone while I was at work that he set all the dates and it's booked. I was so excited!!!!!

    He also said I have another surprise for you, ok... What? I booked you a flight to go see your great grandma in Germany for a few days being that I have to be in this conference. I was so shocked and touched by his generosity that when I was explaining it to my co-workers I started crying. My great grandma is going to be 98 in March 2012. I haven't seen her in 12 years, she is really getting old and starting to forget things and hurt her self. I feel that she doesn't have much longer, and she says she is ready to go.

    It was the best gift ever. I kept crying on and off for days after this. Shit... I'm starting to tear up again.

    I took my spouse to the Grand Canyon on vacation. I will never forget when we first got there and went out onto the observation point. He was literally speechless for a few minutes, and then he said "I never thought I'd see this." It was special for me because I knew that I had made it possible.
