Marriage Breakthroughs: My Husband’s Smile

My Husband's Smile
©William Stitt 2016

Every wife has the best husband in the world. I get it. My husband is different. Don’t laugh at me, it’s true. I can’t believe that there’s anyone else in this world like him.

When I think about him my stomach flutters and I find myself smiling when he’s gone because I remember his smile that is as bright as snow and his laughter gives me the same calm effect I get when I pet a puppy on their belly.

To had ever thought that I didn’t want you or need you, boy was I ever wrong. At Tru.Works, I hope to be real and I’m sharing something true. Marriage has its ups and downs and I haven’t had a down in a long time but I’ve forgiven myself from the new ideas I had. I’ve tossed those out.

As easy as it was to forgive myself I wondered, could my husband forgive me for not putting all my effort into our marriage? I went rogue in my mind and I never want to do that again. I need my husband and my vulnerability had gotten the best of me.

My husband is forgiving. It’s his best quality. He even forgets the things he has forgiven. I wish I could forget so easily. I don’t even deserve his forgiveness even though I know I’ve had to forgive him for things.

This forgiveness is what gives us both the ability to hold on to each other. Once we forgive, we can go back to the smiles and laughter that we both need.

It’s rare that we argue, if anything, other people make us argue. I know, we all know what’s that like.

I’m happy to have moved on from the skeletons in our closets and we’ve passed the tears, and vulnerable moments.

To a new year and a better year!
