I thank everyone who read my post and decided to show me some love.
It meant so much to me.

I was alone that night and honestly felt the most horrible pain in my life.

But I’m happy to say we talked the next day in person and we decided that we didn’t need to break up,…. There was no reason that we couldn’t work on. I’m willing to work on myself and I hope he is too. I want us to have a healthy and amazing relationship.

To see him get as upset as I was really made it an eye- opener and hopefully it was for the best ( like if ever want to go through that again)

The future is uncertain but I care about him today and I care about him tomorrow so I’m not going to stop giving my best.

The thing about first love though…. You don’t know if it’s the best for you but you don’t feel that way. I at least feel like I can love and care about this guy for a long time. I can commit to this guy. I say this now and I hope I say it for a while. But time goes on and people change….
Yet I think I won’t change how I feel about him.

We shall see. For now as long as we treat each other right, work on communicating efficiently, and keep each other in mind I think we will be okay.

*hugs and lots of love*

When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.

The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.

Jon was FINALLY back last night, and hit it out of the freakin park with this Ferguson segment.
