My Childhood Dream Shattered

In my childhood dreams, I watched my marriage play out beautifully. Laughter, devotions, alone time together, kisses and cuddles all abounded. Conflict and differences were seen, but didn’t need to be addressed. We were perfect together, our differences didn’t cause issues.   In my life…………..boy do I see things otherwise. Opposite personalities, different upbringings, age …

The Great Mystery (Part 2)
