Without You

in the generous life

What good things would you have missed out on if you hadn’t married your sweetie?

Make a list and then share with him.

I would have missed a lot of adventure, laughter and some very good food. Boy, am I glad that I married that man!

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.   Martin Luther

I am glad I married my husband of 20 years. If we didnt get married I would have missed out on knowing such a wonderful caring tenderhearted compassionate loving man. I would have missed out on our beautiful children that we have together. The two wonderful honeymoons that we had together. The doors that were opened up for us. The house we purchased together where the moonlight shine in our bedroom. The walks in the Pa mountains taking in the beautiful scenary. I would have missed out on learning how to adapt myself to others. Thats just a few the list goes on and on. I thank God he brought us together.

Thanks for this, Lori! I forwarded the email I got from this blog entry to my husband, along with my list of reasons. He responded, so thankful that I came up with a list, and said he was working on his for me. His love language is words of affirmation, and I have such a hard time with this since this isn’t my love language. When I clean the house, or give him a back rub, I am speaking my language and don’t realize that he doesn’t feel as loved by this. It’s so hard for me to speak words of affirmation since it is not my language, but things like your above suggestion really speak to him :-)
