The Mercedes Marathon in Birmingham, AL is just two days away!!! I’m just a little bit excited. 🙂
It seems that in all my accolades of Thanks earlier today (which you can read here)…I neglected to thank my biggest fan. My husband, Matt.
Some of their response included: commitment, compromise, teamwork, living for the other, hard work, warped, “It’s what YOU make it.”, Loving someone even when you don’t feel in love all the time, they laugh together they cry together but at the end of the day it still = one Big <3, Committed regardless of how you feel because the two have become one, Enduring commitment to God with one’s spouse. Daily choices to love.”
My theory was that no one would use the word “fun” to describe marriage. Some came pretty close! Just as in running, a “fun” run is often used to describe a 1 mile run. The marathon, on the other hand has a different purpose. It is 26.2 miles. A commitment. A challenge. Seems impossible…and even “warped” at times. You choose to run, even on the days that you don’t feel like it. Most of their responses could be applied to training for and completing a marathon. It is a rewarding & life altering experience….and in retrospect, some might even call it “fun” as well. Training for the Marathon always reminds me of marriage…
Matt’s not a big fan of social networking & blogging, so I try to leave him out of it for the most part. But, sometimes I just can’t help it. Training for a marathon with my husband, just makes me love him all the more. His commitment through the miles is a picture of his commitment to me & our family. He keeps me going through the miles on the road and in my life. He watches out for me, encourages me, keeps me focused…and he’s even nice to look at along the way. Thankful isn’t even a strong enough word for how I feel about him.
