By now you know I’m all about analogies. (Remember that time I asked you what your marriage would get a ticket for if it got pulled over?) Looking at your marriage from a different perspective can sometimes be enlightening. So, here’s one for you to ponder. If you were looking for your marriage in the dictionary, where would you find it? It’s a tough one because you’ve got to narrow this answer down to one word.
Tough, I know. I struggled with this one a bit, then wound up teetering between joy, happiness, commitment, and special. Marrying my best friend has brought me so much joy and I don’t think I would enjoy life without The Man in it; yet when I think of my husband the first word that always comes to mind is happiness – even when the skies have been a little grey. Then I thought, commitment is a good one because no matter what goes on in our marriage we always got to bed committed to making sure the next day is a little better. But then special seems so fitting right now because my marriage is by far the most special part of my life, and because of that I cherish it and guard it with my all.
Stumped, I moved on to other things for a while then returned to the question. If you open a dictionary and look up the word “special” you will find our smiling mugs there. Our marriage is special because it’s filled with happiness, brings us so much joy, and we’re committed to it and each other ‘til death do us part. That’s pretty special to me.
So, tell me girls and guys, on what page will I find your union? I’ve got my dictionary ready and waiting. Think about it, and get back to me. (If you blog, you’re welcome to post your answer and share a link.)
