hankful for 28 years of marriage (as of yesterday) . . . .
I don’t take the 28 years lightly. We’ve loved and lived through a lot – and not liked each other through a lot too. Statistics say that 75% or more of marriages do not make it after the loss of a child. We’ve buried two. It’s not been easy. But the rewards are beginning to shine through – as our children are choosing Christian spouses, continuing to choose God and a grandbaby to continue life going, due in the fall. We are laughing more at some of the dumb things we fought over – and learning new ways to set up boundaries and walk away from tensions. I think we forgive a little quicker too! Yes, it’s still work – but work worth enduring.
Yes I am thankful for 28 years of marriage – there’s much to treasure – and much to look forward to!
