john and i have been in a period of goodness. the waves of our marriage never dip too low, but occasionally we soar for long periods of time. we seem to be in one of those phases, when we are both connected with the other, both doing well individually, thus nourishing our partnership, too. feels good. i love these times. and i love it when they last. we’re not perfect. like everyone else, we work at it, but the payoff is so worth it, isn’t it? marriage has been a huge miracle in my life. it seems when we are paired with the person most perfect for us, the good parts of ourselves, the most liked pieces of our personalities seem to stay awhile longer, shine brightly, like glitter in the brilliance of moonlight. and you can never have enough shine, and brightness, and glitter. you just can’t.
