True Love Tueday: Love Supreme

I love my husband. And the fact that he is leaving us--or more truly putting space between he and I is very illuminating to me. I don't feel like it's the beginning of the end. I love him and he loves me. So rather than listen to all the voices and opinions about what I should do. I am going to do what I want to do. I am going to fight to win him back and bring him home. Perhaps I am a fool. But he is my lighthouse, my rock and my love. I am not ready to give that up. He is the cool breeze on a summer day, he is my lemonade, my dry martini, he is all that is near and dear to me. I am owning my miss-steps in this marriage. He is my best friend and he doesn't realize it and I never said it and I never acknowledged it. But he is. He is. So I am going to try my best to save this marriage and rebuild this family. What God Has joined together let no man put as sunder.

Uh oh! Do what you have to do. Do what you know in your heart is right. But as hard as you try, you can't always make the other person believe how strong you feel once they decide otherwise. Keep in mind, his need for space may have nothing to do with your actions (or lack of telling him he is your best friend) but rather with something going on inside himself. I find men like to find fault with the woman to make the separation easier. Just a thought, that's all...

Fight if it's worth fighting for! I think too many people just give up because they're not sure if it's worth the fight, or if they have enough fight in them. As Ciscobaby said, you can't change him. But you sure can take responsibility for your part and try to meet him at least halfway. Then it's up to God and your husband's heart. I pray it works out for you!
