I had to apologize to my husband today, after being pretty mean to him last night. And then I read this little expression of love on the always inspiring blog the Nie Nie Dialogues, which made me feel bad again, but also feel good, knowing that even though Devin & I have some bumps in the road, he would no doubt be my life saver if needed.
