5 Minute Fridays | Expectation

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

I thought it would be challenging, but I didn’t know it would be so hard. I didn’t think we would ever say the things we’ve said or feel the way we’ve felt. I didn’t know that he would hurt me so badly or that I would ever close him out.

When we talked about our future we talked about kids, finances, faith. All the things you’re supposed to go over before the big day. We didn’t talk about what to do when we didn’t want to love each other. We didn’t talk about how to overcome the pain we’d put each other through.

I thought it would be fulfilling, but I didn’t know it would be so huge. I didn’t think I could love another person the way I love him now. Now. I didn’t know that there was a difference between the kind of affection we shared then and the kind that veterans of love share.

When we talked about our future we talked about having fun, being together, never having to go home at night. We didn’t know that 7 years later a trip to the grocery store would still be fun simply because we were together. We didn’t talk about how to love, but we’ve done it.
