I am no expert in the art of Wifing (you know, being a wife!). I do not have any market cornered, not FireWife, YoungWife, ObedientWife, or LovelyWife. Basically, I'm making this all up as I go along, and sometimes it shows.
But one thing I am is enthusiastic.
|Enthusiastic: As in, the opposite of what Handsome is when he takes pictures.|
That's his "big" smile.
I'm a big fan of being married. I pretty much love it and would recommend it to anyone. Its not always easy, and sometimes it doesn't seem like it will ever be easy. But good things aren't easy. And getting to be a wife to a great man is totally worth it. To remind myself of that, I'm periodically going to post about the things I love about wifing. Yes, there are less-than-good things that go along with it all, but those are way to easy to remember. Its the good things that often get forgotten in the midst of life, and its the good things that deserve to be preserved for all time, or at least for as long as the interwebs last.
ASIDE: Have you ever wondered how long the internet will last? I mean, I'm sure when all technology was new, people didn't think about the day when it would become obsolete. Who would have ever guessed that 8-track (or is it A-track?) tapes would go out of style? This leads to bigger questions, like what will replace the internet? Mind control, most likely.
Last week, we drove past a house, and I mentioned that I liked the style of it, and the color, although it sat much too near other houses for my liking. Handsome responded by saying "Take a picture of it, maybe we can build one like it someday." And my heart just swelled. I love having a future with this guy. I love that I don't have to worry about whether or not he'll still be around, that I don't have to preface my dreams by saying "If we're still together". There is none of that. The uncertainty is gone, whisked away with a ring and a kiss and a promise.
So today, that's what I love about wifing. The fact that Handsome's future is so intertwined with mine, its as though they're the same. I know things could happen, tragedy could strike. I mean, seriously, we live very dangerous lives. But for now, he's mine, I'm his, and our futures are ours together. That's favorite.
