Soul Blender

14 years ago today I made promises to a boy-man in front of my friends and family that I would walk though life with only him. During the thrilling times (easy) and the uncertain times (difficult), I've come to learn a few things about marriage, It's doesn't work on paper. Taking two different people, that have been raised in different households, with very different personalities and temperaments and put them together in the SAME house to make a peaceful coexistence is rough at times. Refinement in a marriage can hurt and be uncomfortable, but after the kinks are worked out and we stop getting frustrated at the differences and appreciate what each one brings to the partnership is where true marriage lies.

We are different. He loves Guns and Roses and I can belt out a show tune at a moments notice. He cooks and I bake. He keeps a budget chart and I like to buy gifts. He always knows where his keys are and answers his phone by the 2nd ring. I on the other hand, am 5 minuets late to everything and might call you back next week. Matt teaches our kids about gun safety and I teach them all the proper names for their body parts.

And when you blend our two souls and personalities together you get us. Two broken people that are better together.

So true! Marriage is worth it, but boy is it tough! And throw parenting in the mix and it gets really interesting. I just love that song, too. God bless your marriage!
