A Silly Life Changing Moment

I have always wanted my husband to be able to literally sweep me off my feet and carry me around.  I know,  very silly but isn’t that what we see in all of the romantic movies? I am not ready to possibly hurt my dear husbands back by trying that one yet but I did I have my first ever piggy back ride.  You have to remember I was a very overweight child and I have no recollection of ever having a piggy back ride.  I probably did, maybe but maybe not.

I don’t like feeling out of control.  I trust my husband 100% but to lift up my second foot and have him carry me was difficult to do.  I kept telling him that I was too heavy and that I’d hurt him.  Well, we did it twice yesterday, the first time I was a little overwhelmed by the newness of the experience and just thrilled to be carried around. I think I was a little shocked to actually have someone carry me.  My facial expressions tell it all. WOW!  The second time was more fun and a lot easier to let myself go.  Thanks sweetheart for fulfilling one of my life long dreams. Someday I’ll have the confidence to try the “over the threshold carry”.

Some blurry but wonderful pictures from my PIGGY BACK RIDE.
