2 years ago,
before we got married,
I could have told you exactly how to have
the perfect marriage.
I would have said things like
‘Never go to bed angry,
be kind all the time,
encourage and uplift….’
well, you know, all the things
that probably come to your mind
when you think of marriage.
I was sure,
that if anyone could have complete bliss
in a marriage it was Gary and me.
I mean, how hard could it be?
And now, 2 years later,
I have no idea how to have
a perfect marriage.
Our marriage is many things
and perfect is not one of them.
It is really hard.
Extraordinarily hard some days.
There are many moments that make me want to scream
and many moments that make me smile.
It’s been an exquisite journey.
I am glad I get to be his wife.
I love our marriage
with it’s Ups and Downs
(although truth be told,
I could do with a few less Downs this year)
Our love has changed and grown
over the past 730 days
and I am thankful
we embarked on this journey.
I love you Gary.
2 years down- Many more to go!
