no second string husband

Maybe it's one of those days you want to punch your husband in the face. My dear, don't. Give me a few minutes to try to convince you not to (I might just save his good looks).

I found myself in the same boat recently. I was doing what no good wife should do and remembering all of the things my husband's done wrong. I got so worked up I was ready to beat the crap out of him. I bit my tongue, though, and told the Spirit if He wanted to stop me He'd better go and do it now before it was too late.

He did (He always does). He gave me one good reason not to, not that day and not ever.

My husband is all I have. I've got no bench-warmer husband or husband-in-waiting. There's only one person whom I can say has to get through this hectic life with me--and that's my husband.

Floating or sinking,
Broken or whole,
Sunshine or rain.

My husband and I are in life together. Forever. If we don't look out for one another, we've got no one to look out for us, because, as far as I know, nobody else signed that marriage covenant.

He's got me and I've got him--and we are all we have.

My dear, we may not be great lovers, but somewhere along the way we found someone we wanted to learn to love well. Then we dug up the courage to commit to it for the rest of our lives.

The precious part? That someone loved us enough to do the same.

Two shall become one. You and your beloved are the two. Everything else driving you crazy is the becoming one. Let no man (or you, my dear) separate that sacred unity.

I know how hard it gets, dear friend. But keep loving strong.

in this together,
