Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them
."

My perfect husband and our perfect marriage...

Ok, ok so you are sensing that I might be stretching the truth a little with my title there? What???.... you don't think Jimmy and I experience pure bliss all the time?? =)

It seems there have been those who don't think I am giving the whole story when I talk about how much my husband and I love each other and how happy we are together.... see previous post "Six years ago yesterday". Here are my thoughts and response to the happy marriage naysayers....

Jimmy and I are incredibly happy together. We love each other very deeply and with a strong love that can't be shaken.... BUT, we have had our trials. There have been lots of things that have been difficult and times we have both wanted to tell the other one to get lost. Going through hard times is part of life and going through hard times in marriage is part of it too. How does that saying go? "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger". That could easily be said of our marriage. We have experienced lots of ups and downs but let me tell you for Jimmy and I both, that love and forgiveness go a long way. Laughter and joy in the midst of trial. Looking at the bright side and NOT dwelling on the bad stuff. Hard times and trials are short lived in the grand scheme of things. Our marriage is forever, we choose to be happy and love no matter what.

By the way, do I get it right every day and just walk around with a giant smile on my face and ignore the reality right in front of me? Of course not. I've had pity parties. I've screamed and yelled. I've said unkind things I don't mean... BUT, I'm learning. I'm learning as I go that if I choose a joyful attitude and love in the midst of struggle and trial and hard times that when it's all over I can hold my head high and walk with dignity knowing I didn't stoop to saying or doing things I will regret. This blog is the perfect example... I'm not going to get on here and spew my personal and very private experiences for the purpose of airing my feelings. There are just some things that need to be left unsaid to the rest of the world that are sacred between my husband and I. It's called discretion!

So, for those who think my blog is too sappy sweet about my relationship with Jimmy, and that I'm not painting a truthful picture, please know that is not the intent. My blog is to record the joy of motherhood and the changes it has brought in my life. My husband plays a huge roll in my joy in motherhood and in marriage. I'm not going to use this blog to tell about our latest argument or fight. Am I trying to hide the truth? No, because you know we are human so you must know we have the same problems every other human has right?

Bottom line though, we are very much in love and incredibly happy together! I'm very blessed to have a husband who is selfless in so many ways and despite his shortcomings or mistakes he has made I see a man who is learning and growing and understands what is really important in life. Gotta love him!!!

I agree with you about not airing dirty laundry on here. I do think while it's ok to be real it's not always necessary to spill all the negative stuff. It sounds like your marriage is as great as ours. I love it and wish everyone had as happy of a marriage as we do.
