Strange, but it seems that FWH and I are moving into one of those sweet spot places in our marriage. Yes, there is some tension because of his job being eliminated, but right now, we seem to be in a very good place. Financially, we should be OK for a couple of months, and thatís a big plus.
The ripples from our long talk last Friday are still spreading. He seems to be a lot more relaxed and less hag-ridden. Sunday, while we were writing our DIALOG to each other, he thanked me formally, for insisting that we talk about his fears/resentments, and giving him a week to put it all together. That this exercise had given him the ability to see that there was a lot of things that he had let go/forgiven, and that didnít need to be pressing on him any more. Iím feeling less stressed too. I still have to make a response to him, maybe tomorrow evening, of the things he brought up that I want to address, but there is less urgency between us now about that. And much less fearful stress.
I finally feel like weíve reached those lazy days of summer, this year. And Iím certainly ready to relax and enjoy them.
