Wow! Best Ever Post on Marriage...

One of the very best things I have ever read about marriage and love can be found here.

Ann Voskamp's post is quoted in part below. The link above will take you to her blog and the entire post.

"I think we were standing outside the back door, out by the white pickup under the Big Dipper, when I turned and said it.

Said I hated him.

The dark can make you brave.

Or a fool.

But when you’re twenty-two and think you know everything, panic
can tear up your chest like this howl that has to rip free.

“I hate it when you stand there all quiet.”

He kicks the ground with the toe of his boot, drives his hands deep into his Wranglers. Does he hear me at all?

Hate how you just pull away. Hate how you always think I’m the problem and it’s never you. Hate it, hate it — hate y…”

There. There it is, spewn sick over everything. And the moment that ugliness wrenches free, I feel released — and wretched. Ill.

I want to fling that wedding band encircling my finger and everything. And I want to somehow hold on tight.

I want him to hold me tight.

He turns his back....."

To finish reading the post click on the link above. Ann is one of the best bloggers/writers on the Internet in my opinion. Her blog is an experience, not just a read. Enjoy, Bonnie
