Ten years of…I don’t, I can’t, I won’t. (What my marriage means to me)
Ten years ago tomorrow my husband and I got married. We made all the promises that were expected of us but we really didn’t know what we were getting into….
I don’t…I don’t want to pick up your dirty clothes, or do the dishes you left in the sink. I don’t want to work all day only to come home and make dinner or take out the garbage. While these things may never get said out loud there sure are times they go through our minds. But the opposite is also true, I don’t want to leave for work in the morning because I just want to spend a few more moments with you. I don’t want to work opposite hours because I feel I never get to see you. I don’t want to see you sick or hurt or in pain.
I can’t…I can’t do this day after day, I can’t believe you did that, I can’t even look at you right now. There will always be tough times in our marriages, but when we think we can’t get through we know that God is a part of our marriage. And even if we can’t, He can help us to get through and to see that…I can’t live without my spouse. I can’t believe he/she was so sweet and I can’t know what beautiful plans God has in store for us in the future.
I won’t….I won’t say that marriage is easy, I won’t say it has a happily ever after but I also won’t say it isn’t worth it. I won’t dwell on the bad times, the anger, the hardships. I won’t forget the small things you do for me everyday. I won’t always like you but I promise to always love you and trust that God will continue to help us through.
Happy Anniversary my love…as they say we may not have it all together… But together we have it all.
