Like most married couples we have made it through a lot, both good and bad. The best being our daughter. The worst...well, we've always kept trying and I'm proud of that. Because marriage is hard at times, as most of you know.
I've learned a couple of things that really changed my life though our relationship.
1. You can't try to find your happiness in another person.
2. He can't read your mind, so tell him what you are thinking.
Realizing those two things have made me a happier and more independent person. Able to be a better wife, friend and mother. Finding my own strength and joy inside of me.
I'm happy that I chose to marry this man. I've put him through a lot and he's a keeper. ;)
Sorry this isn't a sappy love post...but life isn't a romance novel. That should be #3 on my list. lol
