We don’t like to do it, but it happens. The other night, Greg and I had a small fight in front of the kids. Essentially, I lost my mind for a moment and just needed a good scream or two or ten. The reason for the fight wasn’t even something I can remember, but the fact that it happened will stick out in my mind. Nope, I am not going to keep score, that’s not how we roll. I’ll remember it because I think moment like this are what make us stronger–if all we did was hug and kiss and flirt, THIS wouldn’t be real. And for that, I am thankful.
Today, I was reminded of how the “good fights”–ones that make you stronger–are just part of the ebb and flow of relationships. (Thanks to the email from Smart Relationships for this reminder.)
