Much of the tension between my husband and I has dissipated. Things aren’t better, just calmer. Thank the heavens!
For reasons only he knows, or the universe perhaps, things I’ve said in the last few years are filtering in to his conscience. When we talk I don’t feel his repressed defensive stance. A chip in the rock wall.
I’ve been able to catch up on things I’ve been putting off for when things ‘settle down’. How stupid is that, really? In my life experience things get different and rarely actually settle down. At any rate today I’m as relaxed as I’ve been in about a year. This window of serenity is not lost on me.
It may be the end of the storm, or simply the eye. In this moment the sun is shining. The birds are singing, and I can take a comfortable deep breath.
Life is good.
