Happy Presidents' Day, Readers!
Hope you all are doing well. Today's entry, entitled "As One" shows how it can be the simple things done as one—that makes all the difference.
Though, one line cracked us up.
You hear me clattering in the kitchen and stroll in to help,
Carry in cups of steaming chamomile tea while I’m typing,
Relax with me over a morning coffee.
You let me be myself.As oneYou tell me I look pretty.
You catch me as I turn away and pull me close.
You tell me I smell delicious.
Your eyes smile when you look into mine.As oneYou sit and listen while I ramble.
You give me honest feedback.
You pray for me when I’m sick.
You make me laugh and melt and smile.As oneIf this isn’t what love is, then shoot me now.
This is not what I dreamed up before you put the gold on my finger.
It’s been so much better, becoming one
Over these countless loving, painful, tear-filled, joy-filled years.As one
Maybe the secret to a fulfilled marriage isn't so complicated after all.
If it is, then shoot us now.
