So we are normal.

July 14, 2010

After writing yesterday's post, I was a little weary that it would come across in several different ways. I worried that it would seem that I wasn't happy. Or that I regretted this marriage thing. Or that we don't ever have good days.

All of those are completely untrue. I am so very happy and I know this is where I am supposed to be and we have so many good days. But sometimes the bad moments seem to overshadow them is all.

I feel so encouraged and uplifted by all of the comments and e-mails I got yesterday. I feel loved by friends, family and strangers alike. Overall, it seems that this is normal and I'm not alone. Which I knew it was, but written proof is nice from those who have been-there-done-that.

Thank you for encouraging me, someone you may not even know. Thank you for reading my story as I experience it and supporting me along the way.

Most of all, I want this to be a place I can be honest about my life and marriage. I want it to be a place where people can come and read and relate. I don't want to paint a picture of a perfect life, because no one has a perfect life.

Yesterday was a test, if you will, to see if I could put my raw feelings out there. Well, I did, and it was reciprocated with only love and support. As I read all of the words, tears were brought to my eyes from it all. But since I was reading the comments via e-mail at work, I kept it in. No need to introduce the messy cry to my co-workers.

So anyway, thank you for all that. I just want to keep it real.
Pin It!
