Sometimes, we all have bad days and require a pep talk from time to time. Thursday was one of those days for me. I dramatically flailed about whining about everything from career to the house to general life direction and pretty much anything else. It was a full blown pity party. I’m not too proud to admit that, but last time I checked an occasional pity party is part of the overall human experience.
It’s how you talk yourself out of it that counts.
So, Somanna, in superb husbandly fashion, set about to cheer me up with his reassuring pep talk. I was all “blah, blah, blah you are so wrong and I don’t want to hear it because I’d rather stay mad at the world.” But he perserved and began checking off things to be proud of and thankful for.
As he’s running down this list of blessings, this was his next one:
“And we’re both married.”
Why yes sir, we both are.
I just didn’t realize this was an individual achievement.
