Just Deserts

I've always loved the phrase "just deserts." 

It implies a sweet reward. Like crème brul'ee at the end of your meal.
But actually, the reward can be just as bitter as it can be sweet.

For too long, I have been focused on the bitter, negative turn my life had taken. I was spinning my wheels, trying to make things work. Single handedly. Marriage is work. But it takes both people working at it.  I had accepted that we would never be millionaires or even get ahead, but as long as I was committed to the one I loved, that is all that mattered.

We accept the love we think we deserve.


I deserve BETTER.
