Early in marriage I would occasionally hold in frustration for a period of time. Finally I would realize how ridiculous that was and would unload on Tara. I felt much better, but then I looked over at her and she was not well. It was like I transferred all my misery right on to her. There have been other times that the very thing that relieves her stresses me or vise versa. Today was one of those days.
I hate snow. I detest it. If I could find a stronger word, I’d use it. It does nothing but depress me. It’s a mess and it makes my business lose money. I don’t mind cold. Let it freeze deep as far as I care but keep the snow away. I remember before I was in business and before I lived in Minnesota. Back then I was naive and enjoyed the snow. Now I couldn’t loathe something more.
Last night it snowed 10″+. Need I say more?
Tara tells me how the snow day was a blessing to her. It meant kids were home and she had good cuddles with them. Lunch was called in from Papa John’s and they watched a good movie while eating. She loved the time with them that the snow brought.
Now she is resting on her pillow with a smile, thinking on memories of the day. I’m on the other side of the bed with a headache, pillow resting on my head, frowning, trying to forget the day and the next few to come. She says that the blanket of white reminds her of how Jesus covers all her sins, making her white like snow. I say it has causes me to sin.
Once again I should learn from her. I’ll see if I can in the morning.
