So yesterday was the last day of school. I know. Crazy.
It was rainy and chilly/humid and I was tired. So I decided to rent a movie On Demand.
It got paused about 678 times and took like 5 hours to finish it and when it was finally over, I felt yucky.
Here’s the deal: it was He’s Just Not That Into You and while funny and witty with an all-star cast, it left the impression that marriage was a joke. Worthless and a silly notion. This isn’t the only movie I’ve seen recently that left that impression. And it’s not just the movies either.
So here’s a call out; an invitation. To all you happily married folks.
Talk about it.
Write about it.
Sing about it.
Make movies about it.
Marriage is awesome. For those of us that work at it and choose each other every day. For the people that are still madly in love after years and years of marriage. For the lucky and blessed women with husbands who express love and affection and support (and vise versa). For the couples who remember that the other is human and prone to bad days/weeks/years and deserves forgiveness.
Being married to my husband has brought such indescribable happiness. He has made me a better person. He has made my bad days better. He drives me insane trying to get a reaction when he tickles me (I bore 5 children for him to tickle. Doesn’t that give me a get out of tickles free card?)
I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
