“Cause I like to see you happy.” – Mr. K
Yesterday, I was emailing Mr. K back and forth and he was making me laugh with the funny things he was saying in his email. He had me in stitches. I responded, “I’m smiling and that’s a good thing that you can make that happen on a consistent basis.” He responded “I like to make you smile”. I asked why and he responded “Cause I like to see you happy”.
Deer in headlights moment for me.
I had NEVER EVER had a man tell me that he likes to see me happy. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve dated men that probably felt that way, but never did someone ever tell me that they like to see me happy. Do you know how that felt? No?
Let me see…Amazing. Overwhelming. Incredible. Mind-blowing. Earth shattering. Awesome.
I really can’t pick an adjective to describe the emotions that I felt, but it felt good. I had this permanent “happy face” all day. Is this possible? With all that I have going on could I actually be cheesing over something so simple and yet powerful? Yeah.
I’m complicated, moody, neurotic, uber analytical, nerdy, smart, loving, humble and grateful and he likes that. I’m not saying that he thinks I’m perfect. I’m sure there are some things he finds annoying, but in the depth of what he sees and says about me, he likes to see me happy.
No one has ever said that they like to see me happy. Wow! I’m grateful that I met a really nice guy that doesn’t ask for anything other than to spend time getting to know me. Who sees me as nerdy, complicated and over-analytical and then just wants me to know that he wants me to stop doing too much and just let someone else carry the load.
Umm, I’m speechless. Doesn’t happen often. However, I’m grounded in the fact that God puts people in your life for a reason, season or lifetime. I wonder what Mr. K is in my life for? Not sure. But, I’m overwhelmed by the fact that he likes to see me happy.
