Just wait…


It’s been a year and 3 months.  We are married and madly in love. So, why do people have to say these words, “Just wait….soon you will just get ___.”  (Add negative word) I was told by a patient when I worked in a nursing home to enjoy this time, this honeymoon.  She was about the only person who said to forget my gaining 25 pounds in a year, forget my aching cheeks from the smiles I could not shake….to enjoy this honeymoon time and that’s it.  Others though, “wait until you hit 20 years, then you will just want to get away from him.”  It is always a, “just wait until _____!  in ___ years you will be over it.”

Why can’t us newly weds just have our moment?  Why can’t we be a year and three months in and still be unable to keep our hands off each other?  What if we can continue this honeymoon for the next 50 years?

I am in love with William A. Parry.  He is my everything.  He literally is my rock and all that I have to keep me sane in this crazy world.  Every time we start to have issues with each other we stop and talk about it.  We do not brush the little stuff under the carpet, because a little can become a lot if you are not careful. My heart is full tonight from simply spending the day in the house with him. He is cloistered away in the office studying, but I am down here doing nothing for the first time in a long, long time. It is refreshing and delightful. And I will not “just wait…” I will be in the moment and love every second I have with this amazing man I call my husband.
