Rory Feek Remarries 8 Years After Losing Wife Joey to Cancer

“We’re Always Tired”: To My Husband in This Phase of Our Marriage

And I’ll agree. They’re growing before our very eyes. We see how fast this phase is zooming by. So we hold on for dear life. We hold on to one another. We hold up one another. We hang in there on the bad days, and we try not to miss the fact of how blessed we are to be in this phase together.

Cause here’s the thing. Our house is crazy! It’s crazy dirty, crazy chaotic, crazy exhausting, and crazy demanding. But it’s also crazy wonderful. And I can’t imagine anyone I’d rather do crazy with than you.

One day it will be different. The girls we pour so much into will venture out into the world. Hopefully, they’ll pour out the great things we’re instilling right now to those around them. And hopefully, they’ll forget all the not great stuff.

One day our nest will be empty of little chicks, but one thing will remain. Us. I hope you see that I try to pour much of my energy into us also. It’s not always easy to see that during this phase, but I do. You’re the one I share now with, but also the one I’ll share later with. I’m grateful for that.

So we may have an overloaded kitchen sink and an overwhelmed agenda, but baby, we also got the dream. We’re living it. It’s sometimes frustrating, but most times wonderful. And I can think of no one I’d rather pass out on the couch at the end of the day with than you. During this phase of our marriage, and during every phase that will follow, I’m super glad I get to do life with you.

Here’s to a full house and even fuller hearts. I thank God for you every day.

XOXO,

Me
