It's funny to me, how routine marriage gets. How you can settle into a walk beside someone and keep doing, and moving forward, and nothing changes. Then, once there is a slightest change to the norm, everything falls under question. Can the way in which we choose to prepare dinner, or when we mow the lawn, or how many movies we watch each week really reflect something about who we are as a couple?

Maybe. Every couple has their way of doing things. But I was reminded this week, by a very newly married lady that our marriages are sacred. Comfortable, but unfortunately destructible, unless we choose to guard it.

And after a long night of ups and downs and screams and little sleep at a hospital too far away, my husband brought me this song, because it reminds him of us. And I remembered, that despite our individual growing pains, and the patience required with transition, that both of us hold each other guarded tight against our hearts. Look this one up on youtube - it's a good one.

"The Woman I Love" - Jason Mraz "Love is a Four Letter Word"

Maybe I annoy you with my choices
Well, you annoy me sometimes too with your voice
But that ain't enough for me
To move out and move on
I'm just gonna love you like the woman I love

We don't have to hurry
You can take as long as you want
I'm holdin' steady
My heart's at home
With my hand behind you
I will catch you if you fall
Yeah I'm gonna love you like the woman I love

Sometimes the world can make you feel
You're not welcome anymore
And you beat yourself up
You let yourself get mad
And in those times when you stop lovin'
That woman I adore
You can relax
Because, babe, I got your back
I don't wish to change you
You've got it under control
You wake up each day different
Another reason for me to keep holdin' on
I'm not attached to any way you're showing up
I'm just gonna love you like the woman I love
Yeah I'm gonna love you
Oh, Yeah I'm gonna love you
'Cause you're the woman I love
