Being Real

My husband and I faced some challenges this weekend--personality clashes, misunderstandings, outbursts over nothing important. We tackled each one, talked it out, apologized, and moved on. But they hurt! I don't like these chapters in our love story. I like the cozy, happy, lovey-dovey ones. However, after 27 years together I'm committed to 'being real.' I sleep better when I'm real. I communicate better when I'm real. I love better when I'm real. I like myself and my partner better when I'm real. I feel closer to God when I'm real. And that's what matters most to me.
