He he - bet you are all wondering if poor Miles made it through the day without me chewing a limb up. Bet you thought all he was getting for dinner was hot toungue and cold shoulder. Bet you thought I iiiiii-ed him to death...
(Quote from blog reader Angela: I said a prayer for you, but especially for your husband because as soon as I went to that site I knew he would be in trouble today)
Never fear, Miles has spent many years of his life learning just how to tame this particular tiger. He can not only tame me but get me purring like a little kitten. I can remember when we were young newlyweds - what angst I caused my poor man! See, he's a "lets talk and hug" kind of person when I'm angry and I, on the otherhand, am a "leave me completely alone for a while" kind of person. This makes for some interesting marriage-building situations indeed.
Some of my friends seem surprized when I tell them I used to have a real anger problem - but I did! And I am only human, I do get very upset at times. Oh, I have come a looooonggggg way, baby, but still need some work in the 'meek and gentle' department sometimes. Oh, I will go through a tremendous time of character building and figure I've got it all licked and then the silliest thing will set me off and I am back to square one!
The difference is, now I know, that even when I do the worst of the worst in acting out in anger, Miles still loves me, unconditionally. Oh, he does not LIKE me much when I'm like that, but he does love me. I think I can honestly look back and see situations where I actually used anger as a control thing. The tiger growled and they scattered! - Miles was the lion tamer to step up to the plate.
Really, some of the things he had to go through at various points along the way we can actually laugh about today. For example - and I am actually laughing as I type this - (seems like it happened to a different person) - one time during a disagreement I actually squished a big mac hamburger onto the inside of the windshield of our van as we were driving somewhere. I can still see the meat patty dripping off the van and the look on Miles face. I can also remember how silly I felt right after.
Folks, I am all for love and being romantic, but some of our most marriage building moments are forged during the most trying and difficult times of our relationship. I think it has a lot to do with showing each other our 'worst' and loving each other through it!
Awrite... time for YOU to share! Surely I'm not the only one who is an ex-hamburger squisher, thrower of waterbottles and walkmans... (yep - but only like a 20 dollar one)...
If I was rated as a salsa for my anger, I would have gone from an extra-hot to a medium - and I am happy with that. Mild is nice but a tad uninteresting for my Miles taste (being a spicy italian guy...) ( I do let him hug me now when I'm angry and I even talk!)
Love sees through a telescope, not a microscope.
