“Today I started loving you again.” — Merle Haggard
Somehow I ran out of things to say on this blog for a while. I don’t know how it happened after so many years. But I am back, and I want to help you Enjoy Being Married.
I am just back from a Sunday afternoon Suzy Bogguss concert at our local cultural center, a repurposed 1800’s white wooden church with a tall steeple and great acoustics at the bottom of the dirt-road mountain we live on. She and her band were terrific, and for the first half of the set, every song inspired another Assume Love blog post.
So let me share two lines from the chorus of Just Like the Weather, which Suzy and her husband wrote while discussing all their divorcing friends during a stop for lunch on their way to a wedding. Statistics from many interviews with married people over many years back them up.
“If you stay it’ll get better.
Wherever you go, it’s bound to rain.”
