While scrolling through my phone and reading the text exchange between my husband and me, I see a love story.
No, I don’t see a bunch of Xs, Os and lovey-dovey emoticons. But I do see mistakes, arguments, parenting advice and venting sessions. I see two people navigating this life together. I see a parenting partner. I see a best friend. I see a union that thrives on a healthy dose of sarcasm.
When I read our text messages, I see a real marriage.
And I laugh.
1. This may be the most truthful text message I’ve ever sent my husband, but honesty is key in a successful relationship.
2. Not only does my husband go grocery shopping, but he always takes the time to carefully and considerately explain life’s greatest mysteries to me.
