“There’s beggary in the love that can be reckoned.” – Antony and Cleopatra

This time it is my husband who gets the Happy Birthday wish!  I chose the quote above because it’s probably the greatest lesson my husband has taught me over the years – not to reckon love.  When I first met him I was much more concerned with “evenness” – I cleaned the bathrooms this week, your turn next week, I bought dinner last time, now it’s your turn, etc.  It took me awhile, but I finally gave all that up.  And in so doing it did change my perspective to be less about “him” and “me”, and more about simply “us.”  Happy Birthday baby.
