Won't Give Up

I was driving home last night and heard this song called Won't Give Up by a guy named Jason Mraz.  I'd never heard it before, but I loved the words.  It reminds me a lot of this year.  Bray and I have had some ups and downs, but these past few weeks, with the kids turning into diabolical little two year olds, I have felt so encouraged and strengthened to know that our marriage is good and strong.  And even when we hit bumps, they are followed by good times.  I could not have gotten through this rough patch with the kids without him.  Knowing I am part of a team, wow, it just makes all the difference tackling the tough stuff. 

We were all five sitting down at dinner the other day and the baby said, "Family."  Family.  We asked, "who is your family?"  And he said, "mommy, daddy..." and then listed himself and his brother and sister.  I love that not only is Bray the love of my life, but he's also my family. 

If you're going through a storm in your marriage, remember that sunshine and a healthier land follows it, and don't give up.  Here's a part of Won't Give Up: 

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find...

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts
We got yeah we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we didn't end
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
I won't give up on us
God knows I'm tough, he knows
We got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
