Reaping the whirlwind

For so many years we felt as if we were reaping the whirlwind.
My husband and I worked so hard to overcome financial woes, miscarriages, in-law drama caused by religious differences, career crises, and years of infertility treatments.
Sometimes I still marvel at how we spent so many years pushing to get ahead despite the gale force winds that pushed against us. We held hands and charged forward against debt, grief, bigotry, and a litany of other travails.
Recently we looked up and realized that for the first time in a long time the breeze is light. The sun is shining. The storm has abated.
For the first time in a long time, we’re standing up straight with trouble behind us.
I know these halcyon days aren’t forever and that love and marriage is for better and for worse.
But right now, Lord, it feels so wonderful to bask in this place of respite.


About domesticpolichick

My life is a crazy jumble of sitcom-level domestic hijinks and fast-paced political reporting in the nation's capital. Breastfeeding while doing a phone interview with a senator...yep, I've done it and no, I won't reveal the name. Toddler calling a member of Congress on the cell..yeah, that really did happen. Pregnant in high heels on Capitol Hill trying to chase down a particularly grumpy senator, yeah...that was nuts. But what can I say? I'm just one domestic polichick trying to figure out the work-life balance.
