The other side of me

IMG_8048

I am a strong-willed, spit-fire, five foot nothing and weigh about as much as a minute. When my husband left for Dallas for a small trip. I thought I got this, no big deal. What I failed to realize how God had designed our  marriage and us as a family.

Our family just doesn’t work without the other person. When one of us is gone our family doesn’t feel right. In the mornings, we have our roles and without the other, it just doesn’t go as smooth or as right.  God designed us to need each other. In our family, as much hardship we can experience at times, doesn’t work without the other.

This small trip has helped me to realize how important it is to fight for my marriage in hard times and nurture it in good times. It has helped me to realize that the girls need to see a good example of a husband and wife. That when I am eighty years old, I still want to feel this out of synch without my husband.

As Five for fighting would sing in a 100 years it’s about the moment:

I’m 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I’m 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars
[CHORUS]:
15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
I’m 33 for a moment
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I’m 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
15, I’m all right with you
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on
I’m 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
