Daily Prompt: VIP Who’s the most important person in your life — and how would your day-to-day existence be different without them?
The most important people in my life are my family: Mr. Rockstar, my son Doug, my daughter Maria, my grandson Viktor, my parents, and Mr. Rockstar’s parents. Then the next level would be siblings: my brother Jimmy, and Mr. Rockstar’s sisters; and don’t forget the nephews and nieces.
So since we’re going with the MOST important person(s) in my life I guess I’d go with the immediate persons. I cannot imagine my life without Mr. Rockstar. Yesterday was our 6 month wedding anniversary. (Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe we’ve been married 6 months already. I guess time does by fast when you’re having fun.) Last night we were talking about how important it is for the both of us that we sometimes just spend time together without others, without the television, computer, phone, etc. I left my phone at home. Left the camera (we didn’t take the picture of us until after we got home from our dinner date). As I sat across from him at the restaurant I couldn’t help but smile. I married the most wonderful, compassionate, romantic, talented, smart and funny man. And he’s a gentleman. He opens the door for me, he carries in the groceries, makes me coffee 😀 Now that I finally found the love of my life I cannot imagine my life without him. I’ve been there and I don’t want to go back to any kind of existence without him. He makes me smile even when I’m absolutely miserable, whether I’m sad or angry, he can make me feel better with just his presence. I love being around him. He’s truly my best friend. However, if/when he gets a better job he’ll most likely go back on the road (he’s a truck driver) and I won’t be able to see him on a day-to-day basis. I’ll be able to talk to him. Message him. Maybe even skype. But it won’t be in person. And though I’ll survive it, I know it will take “some getting used to.” It’ll probably be harder for him than for me though. At least I’ll be home, eating at home, sleeping at home in our bed (though I’m sure there will be times when I’ll fall asleep in the recliner), and I’ll be able to spend time with my son, daughter, and grandson while he’s gone. But he’ll be on the road, either sleeping in the truck or in a hotel room. He’ll be by himself. And my heart aches at the thought of him being alone like that. So I’d have to come up with something special, some kind of notebook with stuff I wrote, drew, pictures, etc he could at least read/look at while he’s out. I’d make it ahead of time so he could take it with him. (Now I’ve got something to think about.)
Before Mr. Rockstar, I was happy with my life, my family and friends, but there was this emptiness that was never filled, no matter what I did, and that emptiness was filled when he came into my life. I truly cannot imagine my life without him, not now.
My son and daughter and grandson are so awesome and amazing. I am truly a proud mother and grandmother. My daughter admitted not long ago that she’s just a little jealous. Not that I’m with Mr. Rockstar, not that we’re newlyweds and happy, but that I don’t have as much time for her now. I am busy. Well busier. I have a home that needs work, a husband than needs and wants my time, a son who doesn’t really need me but who damn sure appreciates it when I cook–if it were left up to him he’d either eat out all the time or starve if I didn’t cook. My daughter is the youngest, and she’s used to getting her way, and she’s the needier of the two and always has been, and now she has my grandson who is the littlest love of my life. So between feeling just a little jealous over the attention I show to Mr. Rockstar and my beautiful grandson I think she’s feeling just a little left out sometimes. As soon as I get a little extra cash I am going to have to take her to lunch or something–Just me and her. And of course, I will have to ask for some time with the little man, so she has a bit of a break, and so I have some time with him :D. His little face makes me smile. I have his picture as the background of my phone and I often look at it because no matter what is going it makes me feel good. His smile could light the world. 😀
I know what it’s like to lose someone who is the VIP in your life. I know the depth of grief that you can feel. It stays with you no matter how much time has passed. April 4th is the 38 year anniversary of my daddy’s death. Though the grief is no longer fresh, and I am an adult, a newlywed with two grown children and a grandson, it doesn’t change the fact that I was a Daddy’s Girl before I was ever any of those things. I will always miss him, always wish I could share the little things, as well as the big things in my life with him. For example, my daddy is buried in Charleston where I am from so I don’t often get a chance to go by his grave-site. Mr. Rockstar took me by there while we were there. I know it might seem weird to some people, but to me it wasn’t and Mr. Rockstar completely understood. I introduced them, said a prayer and talked to him for a while. It was special to me and it meant a great deal to Mr. Rockstar as well. One day when my grandson is old enough to understand I’ll take him by the grave-site and tell him about my daddy.
