Its a new year, so new twist on my Friday's Letters:
A few days now - I think its been all week, I have been staying up way past my bed time.
Hello, Insomnia nice to meet you - can you leave now?
In a way, its a drag because in the morning, although I still get up at the same time I normally do, it causes me to go in super slow motion speed.
Dear Insomnia, I would like my restful slumber back.
So of course lack of sleep leads to a very grouchy Jasmine.
Yesterday, in all cluelessness, I managed to argue with my husband over the most trivial thing, all without realizing that he should get a pass. Last year on yesterdays date, my father in law passed away. By the time I realized it --the hole was dug so deep, he might as well just leave me in that pit until I learned a thing or two.
And although we have unresolved issues, its growing pains of marriage- it literally comes with the territory. Its our lives that we have lived individually for about 30 years being smashed together. (ok, I was 28 and he was 30) One thing we know for sure is that Marriage is work - takes work- and will always be worth it if you agree to work at it. Its not something that you can do with someone that you lukewarm like or think you love - because half the time you are working through your marriage when you darn near hate the person.
One thing is for sure, I could not have picked a better sparring partner.
Dear Hubby, I will ride this life out with you until the end. Because without you (and Jesus, and my family), I got nothing! For every movie you agree to see that I know you have absolutely no interest in (Les Miserables) or every movie you let me watch every single time it comes on just because you know I love it (Something Borrowed), for every meal you ate before I figured out that if I am going to experiment with cooking something new, it should be from a recipe; for every laugh and then some...most importantly for letting me blog about it... thank you.
Dear 2013, I have high expectations from you. I want EVERYTHING that you held back on in 2012. I mean EVERYTHING.
