In the movies the hero always saves the day, just in the nick of time. Sure the hero faces many obstacles and there is some doubt about a successful outcome, but in the end the hero comes through.
Now what makes the person a hero will vary, it depends on the issues at hand. My hero sometimes doesn’t make it in time. To save the burning food, or spilled cup. He tries, but let’s face it Beloved is no Flash Gordon. He also will never leap tall building in a single bound or fly.
But Beloved is my hero, one of em anyway. It’s not easy living with a stubborn person. Really not easy living with a stubborn person who happens to have lupus. It can be down right near impossible to live with a person who is not only stubborn and has lupus but refuses to follow the rules. And yet Beloved does this all with a smile on his face.
When he’s around there is less chance of burnt food because he will do the cooking and the washing up. As for cleaning up spill Some? You better believe he does that when he’s here. He also does whatever else needs doing, even if I insist I can manage it on my own when we both know there is no way I’m getting it done because of lupus.
So they will probably never make a movie about the type of hero that Beloved is. That’s okay, he knows he is my hero just by being himself.
