I am a Midwest wife, mommy and sorority girl. I love my hubby and my girl Miss G., family and friends,thrift store shopping, my natural hair,watching tv, blogging, obsessed with glasses and I am a want-a-be Martha Stewart. Welcome to my busy but full filling life.
The broomjumpinggroom and I went for our first marriage counseling session with my pastor. It was kinda of interesting. We heard lots of stories of my pastor relationship with his wife. After he talked awhile my pastor said, " I am not going to talk the whole time. Got any questions?" The broomjumpinggroom and I just sort of sat there. He then asked, "How long have you been together?" I stated, " Almost 10 years." My pastor looked and said," So you know each other pretty well?" We both nodded. I think that my pastor got the hint that we had kinda of been through some of the situations that he was giving us. The rest of the session, my pastor told more funny stories and we began to ask some questions, but not alot. The session did not last long, about an hour and a half. It was interesting to hear some of the stories, because even though he has been my pastor since I was a child, I only seen him in one light..pastor. Not as a husband. As the session ended, we made another appointment to see him again in a few weeks. I was not sure what to expect from marriage counseling, but the stories and the knowledge shared will be used as references in my marriage.
How is or was your marriage counseling experience?
The sun has come.The mist has gone.We see in the distance...our long way home.I was always yours to have.You were always mine.We have loved each other in and out of time.When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun and the first tree struggled up from the forest floorI had always loved you more.You freed your braids...gave your hair to the breeze.It hummed like a hive of honey bees.I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there....Mmmm...God how I love your hair.You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.Lost, injured, hurt by chance. I screamed to the heavens....loudly screamed....Trying to change our nightmares to dreams...The sun has come.The mist has gone.We see in the distance our long way home. I was always yours to have.You were always mine.We have loved each other in and out in and out in and out of time. -Maya Angelou
