No one promised that “happily” would be all the time.
No one promised that there wouldn’t be down with the up.
No one promised that there wouldn’t be swear words and mistakes…
They are all part of the dynamic that make up a relationship, and a marriage.
We are two, then three, then 6.
We are busy, tired, committed, and over committed.
Sometimes moon energy flares, tempers flares and heat is exchanged. And sometimes you have to figure out the best way to deal with hurt feelings.
“I’m sorry” isn’t going to stop the hurt right away, but it’s the first smooth stone on the path towards Forgiveness.
I am sorry.
I hope you are too.
Today has to be better than yesterday because yesterday was abysmal. We can only go up from the bottom of the well, and at that just one rung at a time. But eventually our heads will clear the stone wall, and we’ll be out of the black hole and laughing and whole and wondering how we fell in, in the first place.
So for what it’s worth, I’m sorry.
I love you. (even if I’m an evil tempered bitch)
(but you knew that 35 years ago)
