I think the greatest thing about this blogger is her complete honesty to approach whatever she wants on her blog. She can talk amiably about her husband and their relationship. She also is doing her own break off of Twilight beginning where the books left off...so I am glad to have her on board to give us more of a peek into another really cool REAL relationship...you can also find her over at her site Color Me Untypical.
I'm really not a serious person, like . . . ever. And I did want my first post here to be something more humorous, but after some events Sunday, I feel that perhaps I've learned and important lesson, and I'd really like to share it with others.
I received a phone call from my husband Sunday afternoon. We were going over to his best friends house for dinner that night, but originally for another completely different purpose: a friend that my husband, and our two close friends worked with at their last job killed himself Saturday night.
Apparently he was in the middle of an argument with his wife, to whom he'd only been married one month. No one knows if it was an accident, if he was drunk, or, God forbid, if she did it. He was a very happy guy apparently, and everyone is just shocked by this news.
It really makes me wonder . . . . what were they fighting about? Was it something important? What were the last words she said to him? And how will she go on through life, remembering those last few moments of her husband's life?
Sometimes in the past, in the middle of an argument, I'll take notice of something on the floor near DH and think, "What if right now, in the middle of this argument, he trips on that, falls and breaks his neck?" And instantly, my thoughts change. I'm willing to give up the fight because there are so many more important things to say to the man I love.
I don't know about you all, but this moment has given me some perspective. What's worth it to fight about? Certainly not the dirty dishes, his socks on the floor, lack of money, a video game gone too long, or his snoring through the night.
No matter what, I'm going to take this moment to rededicate myself to my husband. Because I don't want to have any regrets should something ever happen to him. I want the last words to be "I love you," I want the last thoughts to be "I love you," and I want to make sure that my last actions with him are going to reflect my thoughts and words.
I encourage everyone to do the same.
