UPDATE: Melissa E., comment #28, is the winner of this giveaway.
I’ve been working on a project for months in the cracks of my time.
My husband has listened patiently and pushed me gently.
And then last week, some pieces fell together and while I was helping my Kindergartner with sight words after school, I moved one step closer to my goal and that made me squeal. Literally.
She just looked at me like I was crazy.
She’s a perceptive child.
But I knew I wouldn’t be able to truly rejoice until I talked with my best friend. I called my husband at work. His response made my joy complete because he has been with me on the journey.
My husband lost his sister and one of his closest friends a month ago this week. His sorrow is great and there is a cloud of sadness that hangs heavy. It’s unchartered waters, this grief that invades every space at the most unexpected moments. It comes in waves and just when you think you can laugh again, you cry. But he isn’t grieving alone.
We don’t always agree.
We don’t always get along.
But we are one.
We go together. His grief is mine. My joy is his. It’s the sacred gift of marriage, this unexplainable, undeniable act of becoming One. It’s the most precious gift we share.
It’s what helps us thru the valleys and the mountaintops, the sheer pleasure of facing them together.
And that’s why I love Union 28‘s new Valentine’s marriage shirts.
