I’m working through Eve this week on the Bad Girls’ Guide to Intimacy. I’m reminded of the seasons of discontent my husband and I have walked through, but more than that, I’m reminded we made it. As my heart aches for the marriages around me that are crumbling, I sent this over to my man today–in celebration of us.
“As I write today, I celebrate my marriage and that we made it. Nine years in and the war we waged for unity has brought peace. Nathan, As I revisit the hardest years of our marriage, I say they are worth it, and I love you more because the skin that holds us together is tougher, resilient, and yet soft and nurturing in a way it wasn’t before.”
So I ask you to hang on if you are in the middle of this war. It’s worth it.
