♥ ♥ ♥ 18 days to Valentine’s Day! ♥ ♥ ♥
Today is my 28th wedding anniversary. :)
It feels good to look at my sweetie and know that we made it. Not “made it” in the sense that we have marriage down perfectly, but in the sense of we have learned the skills that will keep us loving and growing in our marriage.
We’re happy. We enjoy life together and we look forward to many more years together. (Paul is hoping to make 75 years. I told him that might be asking a bit much.)
An encouragement for y’all:
There were many people who didn’t give our marriage any hope. There were actually some folks betting on how long we would last (we’re talking weeks and months). We had serious baggage and no real marriage or relationship skills. If we can make it, then so can pretty much any other couple.
I don’t think we had anything special other than the desire to make it work and the willingness to hang in there. We prayed, tried, cried, prayed, read, experimented, prayed, cried and believed that God was big enough to work us out of our messes.
You and your husband can learn, grow and change. You can have a happy marriage.
