Day # 23 - Love Always Protects - Jennifer

Eric said it so well.... read below! It is amazing how when a couple really strives to become one how it changes the way you do life.

Let me give you an example. If any of you have twins then you know they are very unique. Our 12 year old twin boys, Elliot and Wesley, are always together. When one is reading, you'll find the other one reading right next to him. They watch t.v. together, play at the same time, go to the park together, go to bed at the same time, you get the picture.

They choose to do everything together. When one gets invited to a birthday party without the other they don't go. It really is an incredible thing to watch. They are truly each other's best friend. Do they argue? Oh yes, but they verbalize it to each other and then five min. later or sooner they are back playing or doing whatever together. And sometimes, there are punches!

This is such a great example (maybe a little extreme) of how a couple that desires to be one would look like. They love doing things together, if one has to run to the store, than the other wants to go along with.

How many of you have marriages similar to what I'm talking about? I find the more Eric and I process our lives as one, the more we become one. Can I go hang out with girlfriends? Of course! But do I want to? Not so much.

This is so true about twins, we have 10 month old twins, and from the start they were always together. Even now that they can move all over, you will always find them in the same corner together in their playroom. My husband and I are lucky that we do love to spend all of our time together, even after 7 years, but thats not to say that we have not had our very hard times, but through it all we choose to love each other.
