I didn’t have time to read this yesterday, but I’m glad I left it open and managed to take the time today. Good words, ones I needed to hear.
It is tough after a long day with a growth-spurt-constantly nursing baby, homeschool and household chores, mommy-can-you-do-this, and mommy-can-you-do-that, and not one moment to breathe, to remember how important my marriage is. Many days, when the kids are finally in bed, I just want to tune the whole world out. Bill wants to talk, and I want to beg leave to vegetate: please, honey, leave me alone! But it’s not fair to him, and not fair to myself either. Burying my nose in a book or staring blankly at the TV or computer screen might be what I think I want, but it’s not want I truly want.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for the reminder.
