My bf got electrocuted at work last night, he had to go to the hospital and everything... i didn''t find out till this morning because he was on night shift and i was asleep and he didn''t want to disturb me (bless)... thank god he is ok, but it really made me start thinking about him and how much i love him and would hate to loose him.

After he told me his story i gave him a big hug and said ''i am sooo glad that you are ok...'' and he says to me.... yeah i bet you do... you haven''t got the ring on your finger yet so you wouldn''t want me dying too soon!! I know he was joking but at that point it made me realise that it isn''t about how big and sparkly my diamond turns out to be, it''s more important that we love each other and i will do anything to stay with him for the rest of my life... i would even give up the ring.

So i guess i just wanted to say to all the girls out there like me who are obsessing over the perfect ring and when it''s all going to happen (i am guilty of this over 100 times!!) just remember how we got here in the first place and what is really more important... the men we want to spend the rest of our lives with...

take care.

Thank heavens he is okay. I am glad for that.

And thank you for sharing your story.. You''re right.. in the light of the nerves and anticipation, sometimes we''re guilty of losing sight of what is really important.. :)

He works for a mining company (we are in Australia), he was working with a crane when he grabbed a part of it with both hands and a jolt went into his chest.. while he was at the hospital the electrician figured out that whoever did the recent maintence on it didn''t put it back together properly and left a heap of water in the cavity so it was an accident waiting to happen... luckily bf used to work as an electrician years and years ago and had been shocked before so he knew what to do! lol.

Oh my! Thank god hes okay! That kind of sounds like you could take legal action if you wanted to. Someone could have died from that maintenance man''s negligence.

So glad he is okay! Sorry to hear about it. Your post was really great, because I think we all do need to take a step back sometimes and realize what''s important.

I''m glad he is ok. I also think that the backbone supporting ones "desire for the perfect ring, engagement, etc" is the awesome man they fell in love with. ((Hugs))
Be sure to give your man some sexy, I love you time!
