He sits down across the way from me and asks me what’s wrong.
And I tell him..because it is my marriage too…and I have learned even if you have to talk yourself into it…better out then in.
and he winces.. because it’s his marriage too..and he knows this means we have to go through it…now that it’s out and not in.
So it begins… the picking off of harmful things.
The things which started out so small…
but after a week of rolling around in the rock tumbler of the human head, come out shiny giving us the illusion we have to value our hurt.
and the kiss goodbye has lost it’s pucker for the week…
and a kiss without pucker tells the other person volumes.
and sometimes this is just the way of the busy household…
when baseballs and ballet shoes are crisscrossing your schedule…
when flight schedules and meals to sick family are being constantly rerouted
when song writing and music practice drown out the sound of an exhausted sigh
when homeschool notebooks pile up and demand to be checked
when business is booming and the phone is always beeping
when seven kids want to be fed all.the.time.
little things get overlooked and sometimes the little things are lunch meat at the grocery and other times it’s a look that says I miss you.
So sorrys are exchanged and I’ll try betters…
because it’s our marriage once again and of all the songs we write…and all the songs we sing…
Our marriage is what we want to be true worship.
so better out then in…
and now with that settled
we go forward.
