First comes love,
Then comes marriage…
Waiting. A new house. More waiting. Wondering. Fun traveling and attending family/friend’s weddings. Love. A family divorce. More waiting. A family death. Crying. A job offer. A new NFP method. More tears. Doubt. A graduation. A move across the border/Gulf. More traveling. And more waiting.
Sometimes I can’t believe its been 2 years and others, that’s its been only been 2 years! Thank you, second year of marriage, for teaching me nice little nursery rhymes are children’s things and we should leave them for the children because they are not the content of actual marriages. I guess that’s all a lesson I needed to learn eventually. Even though my head knew it, living it is something else entirely. In real marriages you laugh together and thank God, you cry together and beg God, you find peace together and praise God, and you repeat, together.
Year two included lots of growth that revealed (surprise!) plenty of room for more growth. All in all, I don’t know if I should say this but, I’m glad this year is over. It. was. hard. There were plenty of good times, but still, difficult. Much more difficult than anticipated. But we made it.
And if we can make it through this we can make it through anything.
Happy Anniversary, babe :)
