It is hard! If anyone tells that it isn’t, they are lying!
Paul and I “found” each other 7.5 years ago.
We make our marriage what it is, by working on it each and every day. Every single day we choose each other. Choose to do what is in the best interest of each other, our marriage, our family and the life that we have built together.
We still fight and have disagreements. There are moments when it gets hard and feeling get hurt where we don’t like each other very much.
Sometimes we aren’t fun. We are in bed by 9, we spend New Year’s Eve quietly at home, we watch documentaries and get in some pretty heated discussions about current events.
The last thing that we do each night and the first thing that we do each morning is give each other a kiss. We still fall asleep touching each other somehow, holding hands, spooning or one leg kicked over the other.
Some days are easier than others, but for all of them I am grateful!
Give yourself grace! Marriage won’t look like perfect, it is messy and in that give grace.
