So after last weekend, Matt and I have had an amazing week. He took time off work earlier this week so we could spend some great time together. He and I have been able to talk without yelling and listen without being defensive. We've always been aware of our communication issues, but we are now finally working on repairing and improving them.
I have friends who are MADLY and DEEPLY in love with their husbands. Sickly so. The kind that make you want to puke sometimes. But on some levels I always wondered what it would be like to have that. And to feel that. I mean, I've loved Matt since I met him, but thought I just wasn't capable of mushy gushy love.
After this week...oh, I'm capable. Not only am I capable, I love it! I love that he wants me to come home to spend time with him. I love that he's talking and we're on the same page. I love that we're both going out of way to make the other one more comfortable and feel more loved.
I had no idea, even after almost 7 years of marriage, that I could love Matt any more than I already did. Sure, I've heard people say it, but I had no idea that it was true. And it's taken over in such a short amount of time. Crazy.
I'm looking forward to watching and experience our love growth over the next days, weeks and years. I am overwhelmed with the love I feel for and from my husband.
Matt, I love you. 'Til death do us part!!
