Fixing Things

I love my husband. Even though things don’t always go ‘right’ or ‘good’, they still ‘go’.

Right now he is fixing the lock on the screen door. No one knows how it got broken, but he’s fixin it. Soon he will take care of the wasp nest in the deck box. That’s a tricky one, because you have to lift the lid, find the nest and hit it with the spray BEFORE they find you. Tricky!

I am not losing my Green Card over the wasp spray-it’s completely Eco-Friendly and safe for pets and children! It’s like 100 proof mint. Did you know mint kills those guys instantaneously? Well it does. You spray them and they fall over dead, even if they’re flying! Quite literally they drop out of the sky, dead. The whole nest is dead in seconds. Cool stuff!

You still gotta be fast though!

Yup, he is really good at fixing things.

Even our marriage.

We’ve been through a rougher than normal patch and things were going South big time. It was odd. It was scary. It was rough. It was hard. It was painful for all of us.

Our marriage is on the mend. We are finding our way back.

Because not only is he fixing things, so am I.

They say it takes two…

To Tango…

To be wed…

To quarrel…

To stay wed…

It took the two of us to let our marriage slip.

It took two of us to say we’re sorry.

It took both of us to fix it.

It will take both of us to make it work.

And it’s going to work.

Because we still have love for each other. With all our faults and all our short comings, we still have the love.

Even more so because we always had like for each other. When the love was thinning, the like was there. Strong and dependable. It carried us through and we are finding our way back to the love.

Which will now be stronger, deeper and better.

We’ve been together for almost 21 years.

That is long time to lose. That is a lot to let go of.

We didn’t.

We’re gonna make it.

Because we want to.

Because ‘we’ are worth it!

Because we are fixing things.

    Thanks for sharing that. Marriage is hard.
    I am glad you both are working on it.
    He gets major points for going after those wasps in my book! LOL

    If you shoot the nest at night, they are all in there and ‘asleep’, easier to creep up on them without the danger of being stung. 🙂
