Last night I was mad at my husband. I don't remember why. I try to forget or I get mad again. It was bedtime for me and I was washing my face thinking, What's the point of being mad? No matter how mad I am tonight, I'll get over it by tomorrow morning. So I quit being mad and had a quiet rest.
Other things have happened today (blog later), but I was driving home from dinner thinking, what is going on? I am confused about stuff… Then a Terry Clark song came on the radio, which just made me grin. I've never heard it before, because I don't listen to the radio much voluntarily. But I loved the chorus.
“I'll never leave. I'll never stray.
My love for you will never change.
Please, don't make me smile.
I just want to be mad for a while.”
This is how I often feel. It used to make me much angrier in the early days of our marriage that he could make me get over being mad much sooner than I was ready to get over it.
Now, I think, he just leaves it alone and I get over it on my own.
