One hundred and thirty two

He loves me.

I think it is easy to give unconditional love as a mother.  My children may have other maternal figures in their lives, but I will always be the one who gave them life.  Marriage is a different ball game.  Being of the child of divorced parents, I saw first hand that there isn't always a happily ever after...and that men sometimes leave their wives for other women.  I think this has made it harder for me to fully let my guard down in my marriage, and it is something I am constantly working on.  I often can't get over the feeling that he may one day 'love me not.'  And my poor husband bears that burden as well.  I need to do a better job of believing and living the fairy tale.
