I have a HUGE love for Eagles. Not only do I find them so majestic but they are so empowering while being truly beautiful. Eagles were mine and my dad's thing. Every time each one of us saw an Eagle, we had to call one another - no matter how many times a day. When my dad suddenly and tragically passed, I got a tattoo of an Eagle on my forearm along with my dad's handwriting.
Today, butchkins311 took me to a zoo that allowed us to be in the cage with this Bald Eagle. She hurt herself flying and now they are helping her get better. By this fall, she will have her white head and I am going to volunteer to get her better. When she's ready, I'll get to wear a glove and hold her. Even writing this, gets me emotional.
This is what he did for me right before he proposed. He knew what a dream of mine this was and it was his way of having my dad there with us when he asked me to be his wife. I've never had someone truly listen to my dreams and make them a reality.
I am so lucky and forever grateful for this. THAT is what love is about. Being a partner and thinking of them first. Remember that.
I love you all so much.
