~ Vertigo (Do The Demolition) | Duran Duran ~
"One of the most beautiful qualities of an intimate relationship is the give and take of energy that occurs between two people. In the best-case scenario, both people share the talking and listening, and the giving and receiving of support, equally.
Occasionally, within any relationship, the balance shifts and one person needs to listen more, or give more. Generally, over a long period of time, even this exception will take on a balanced rhythm; we all go through times when we take more and times when we give more."

It has been a trying time! We are still without running water . . . the end of Week #7 . . . no immediate end in site. Having a well system rather than the convenience of municipality provided water really does suck. Our municipality wants at least $15,000 to get hooked up since this area is not set up for this service you would think is routine in a "modern" big city. It doesn't matter that we pay local taxes!
The strange thing is that this whole time of unforeseen hardship, The Captain and I have become closer than we were before.
There have been times I felt as though I absolutely could not deal with this problem any longer. Those times of teetering on the edge of sanity and insanity, that loss of balance, proved to be opportunities of soul searching and comfort. The discouraging times for The Captain found me experiencing optimism which has helped him going.
As problems arise, we find solutions . . . it is not the end of the world. We have so much to be grateful for.
We are living the above quote . . . hardships can become blessings . . . believe it or not!
