Today, I snapped. It wasn't pretty. Today, I came home and scorned Ben. With a face that was FAR worse than cute pout. Today, I didn't give Ben a kind word. Not even when he held me. Not even when he said everything would be okay. Not even when he brought lunch to the table.
Today, I was mean.
I'm embarrassed to admit that today I had a bad day. I'm not embarrassed to admit I had a bad day. I'm embarrassed to admit I took my bad day on Ben.
But. I asked for forgiveness. And, Ben forgave. It was one of the highlights of my day.
Why? Because...Forgiveness is a beautiful part of marriage.
