Do you really wish your partner was perfect?
January 16, 2019

“You don’t love someone despite her limitations,” I teased Darrell after he’d lingered on one of mine. “You love someone because of them.”

I forgot where I’d heard that. “It sounds like something,” Darrell teased me back, “someone with a lot of limitations would say.”

On a good day I’m thankful for Darrell’s limitations. It keeps either one of us from being too hard on me for mine.

On a better day I realize how boring it would be to (1) be perfect, or (2) be married to perfect. Challenges make life fun. Just keep telling yourself that, okay? I’ll try to do the same.
