Communication is key and love is a daily decision.

I am feeling blue around the edges. Not all the way through, but just a tinge here and there. I can't even pinpoint exactly why. But it led to sharp tongues and short words and hurt feelings for a while tonight.  After we yelled for a few minutes, we tried talking instead. And the tongues got softer and the words were more expressive and the feelings got less hurt. About twenty minutes later I was thinking that it is amazing to be able to walk away from an exchange that started so poorly, with no bad feelings left, in such a short amount of time. So although I am still a little blue, I am also very grateful for the relationship I share with my husband. I love that we are able to acknowledge that as much as we "irritate the living snot" out of each other, we wouldn't want to trade it for anyone else's "snot". I am also grateful that he recognizes the medicinal properties of chocolate for when a girl is feeling a little blue...

Well said, Chrissy. Sorry about the blue edges but I'm glad that you and Brian were able to patch things up quickly.
