Over Two Years In ................. The Changes We See
If you and your husband are a ttwd couple, you know well that things are always changing. You meet those bumps in the road head on. The two of you do much communicating. You learn not to distance. You become a better listener. You keep your voice low and reasonable. You crave the calmness knowing things are smooth and steady. You believe in this ttwd. You seek friends who are successful in their ttwd relationships. You find that the respect you give is the respect you receive. You learn to give way to not having your way all the time. You learn to lean in. You know the feeling when your husband stops the racket that swirls around you. He pulls you close and says that he has had enough. He opens his arms and you go to him. You know the peace and like when it sweeps over your body. He pulls you close, his hand on your bottom and says tomorrow will be a better day. You have created a good life, a really good life by giving up the control you used to have. It is a safe place, here in his arms. You watch him as he moves throughout the day. He stands taller and he enjoys his leadership. He enjoys your following. When he talks, you turn to face him and really listen.You laugh more and share more. You touch more and make love more. You dress to please him and lingerie is once more important, even though it spends most of its time on the floor. You know that the two of you have built a better marriage and the funny thing is you thought it was pretty great to begin with, but now we have the fireworks back! You know your marriage has really changed and for the better. It feels right and it feels safe. People comment on how happy you are. You feel it too. You know you are the happiest you have even been. This ttwd life really works. You kiss your sweet guy and move forward.
Thank you, L.
