Marriage in the Fog

You know 10 years of marriage can take a toll on a couple. Money, kids, work, life, well the reality is they all drift in between you like a thick winter fog rolling in off the bay. And sometimes a couple can be right next to each other but life’s fog is so thick they can’t see each other. I think every marriage has those periods.

But then, one day out of the blue you look up and the fog has cleared. For a moment you’re not mom and dad. You’re not working or running or taking care of business. You’re just that couple.

That guy and that girl that once upon time touched hands for the very first time and felt flames of destiny race through your skin. You remember what it was like to first have him lean into to you and touch his lips to yours. And you remember.

And even as the fog begins to roll back in, the kids start grabbing at your leg, the phone starts to ring, and work beckons, you look at him. And you remember that even as life’s fog rolls in and you get caught up in the madness of every day life that all you have to do is reach out and he’s there. Always.

I heard this song today and it made me close my eyes and remember how much I love my husband.

Yea, cause I’m cheesy like that.
