Another Thankful Thursday is here, what are you thankful for this week? I am very thankful for my rock solid marriage that is built upon the Solid Rock. Lovebug was on vacation last week, money is really tight right now, as it is for nearly everyone, so we did not go away on vacation, just stayed home. But, that was ok with us. Bless dear lovebugs heart, I have not been feeling well, so he spent alot of time taking care of me. He is such a treasure to my heart, he is my heart. Our hearts beat in rhythm to each other. Actually, we are like two bodies with one heart. I am so thankful for my lovebug. He is so good to me, and for me. I got emotionally upset last night, crying like a baby. He comes into our bedroom, sits down on the bed, and lovingly asks me what is wrong. I tell him I am fine, he says no your not. I start crying harder, he pulls me into his arms(my place of refuge), and rocks me like a little baby until I quit crying. Then, he listens patiently as I tell him what is bothering me. What is the problem? The mirror!! He looks at me, and says, what are you talking about? I tell him, I hate the mirror. Every time I see myself in it, I just want to cry. I am not the woman he married almost 25 years ago. I have no hair, hardly any eyebrows, I am overweight, and my eyes are so very weak and tired. I have dark circles under my eyes that look like luggage, I am 45, but look so much older. I tell him I am sorry that I have become so unattractive, and that I feel sorry for him having to be married to me. He looked straight into my eyes, and said the following: No, you are not that woman I married almost 25 years ago, and I am not the man you married almost 25 years ago. We are two people even more crazy in love than we were then. When I look at you, I still see that 21 year old beautiful bride, except you are even more beautiful now. As he put his hand upon my head, and began to rub it, he said to me that my battle scars look lovely on me. Of course, at this point, I am crying again, but it was tears of joy this time. From now on, I am not going to worry about the mirror anymore, all I have to do is look into dear lovebugs eyes to see my reflection shining through his precious eyes of love, and I will know I am still his beautiful bride, and he is my handsome groom.
