“We must focus on the beauty of the dance, while we still have the chance. ~M
My quote today was inspired by the following quote. Such powerful words always cause me to reflect upon my own life and its meaning.
This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.

Recently, I’ve been asking myself how it is that my husband and I have had such a quick turn-around in our marriage. Since September he made the decision to go above and beyond what any normal husband would do, all in order to prove to me that he really wanted to make our relationship work.
I fought him for several months, not believing a word a word of what he was saying and figured he would go back to his old typical ways. Six months later he has surprised the heck out of me. He has completely changed into an entirely different person. It’s as if God said, “Alright Michelle if this is what you want, your perfect wish is granted!” And then instantly, he handed me somebody new.
At first, I thought an alien had quite possibly taken over my husband’s body. He is actually so different, that I had to get used to him all over again and frankly it sort of scared me at times. All of a sudden I had a stranger living in my house, telling me how much they loved and adored me over and over. And it’s been non-stop for six months now.
So I’ve been trying to figure out what finally broke through my concrete exterior, in order for him to reach in and take back my heart; which had undoubtedly gone into deep hibernation. After pondering this for quite some time, I’ve finally figured it out! It’s his eyes… he is finally looking at me!
During our 23 years of marriage, he would never look me in the eyes when he spoke to me. He just couldn’t do it. I would ask him to and he just never could. So connecting with him was very hard, because I could never really relate to him on a deeper level.
Now, when I look at him, he doesn’t look away. His focus is completely on me and his eyes say it all. He loves me and what more could a girl want! He has finally revealed to me the window to his soul. And I have to say, the view takes my breath away every single time I’m met with those baby blue eyes. I can only hope that window remains open for the rest of our days. I would hate to lose such a beautiful sight.
