Sometimes I wish life came with instructions. Or perhaps... just guidelines. LOL.
I've been keeping something a secret. Actually, we both have. For about five weeks. That's a long time to keep a secret.
But I was talking (over a month ago) to a friend of mine, and she told me something her mom has been telling her for her whole life. She said to me, "There is no one way to make a relationship work. You simply find a way that works for you. You find a way; and it may be unconventional... but you make it work."
This hit me. Hit me like a ton of bricks. I went home and wrote about 15 pages in my journal. And the next day? My husband and I talked. And then... five weeks after leaving, he came home.
That was over a month ago.
As I start to tell people, more and more opinions come out. Some good. Some bad. But you know what? It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter to me. It doesn't matter to him. It doesn't matter to us. We want to be married to each other, and we are making that work. Sure it takes a lot of work. Every relationship does. We know this. We've been together for over eight years.
And we have a LOT of fun together. We smile a lot. We laugh even more. We hug more times in one day than I bet most people hug in a month. We are relaxed. We are calm. We are happy.
I feel loved. I feel adored. I feel special. I feel cherished. And I haven't felt that... in a very long time.
