I told R that I was going to be content.
His definition of content is “giving up for good enough, because it takes more energy than you want to expend to do something else.”
My definition of content is “a decision to accept and rejoice in whatever circumstances and work in and through and beyond those.”
He told me what he remembers from our wedding service is that he said, “I ain’t going to stop love you for nothing.”
He has kept that vow.
Thank you, God, for 26+ years of blessings.
