Love and Marriage

It is a beautiful, glorious day today!!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I wrote about my me and my hubby and our first love spark.

It was sweet....but now.....in reality....after 28 years of marriage..we didn't do much for Valentine's Day.

I did think "I need to do something special today"....so I.....put on some makeup and looked for a red sweatshirt.

Yep...that's how we roll now.

But isn't it great?......it's a settled in, cozy, easy kind of love.  Like when best friends can spend the day together and rarely even talk.

But the spark is still there.

My heart still beats faster  when I know he is about to get home.....and yes sometimes it's because I need to change out of my pajamas and clean really quickly...lol.

And we still want to spend time with each other.  He wants me to go riding the dirt roads, or cutting firewood or even hunting and fishing.  If I say nooo..I really need to stay at home..he will go get my book and put my drinks in the ice chest and say please go with me.  So I will.

Those little things mean a lot.

In turn, I try to do things for him.  

Like cook a good supper, keep his clothes clean and ironed.

  Ask for his opinion on things that I do.

Just because you get married doesn't mean that manners goes out the door.

Be considerate of each other.

Don't keep a score card.

You will both lose.

Things won't be perfect.  You will fight.  We have had some humdingers....but.....no matter how mad we have been at each other....we have never.......ever.......thrown out the word divorce or just leave.

We have gone to bed mad.....but this is very important....always sleep together....because some time during the night no matter how mad we were.....our feet would touch......or our hands and then you move closer and soon you're not mad any more.

Keep your sense of humor and be willing to say I'm sorry even when it may not be your fault.

Sorry...I didn't mean this to become a seminar on marriage but it is a great thing to have that special someone  
till death do you part.

That knows you better than you know yourself sometimes.
That loves your children as much as you do.


So do you love your husband and love being married?

I  do...

It has to be the shared laughter being the best part of the secret, Lisa. I just brought my husband home from his second cataract surgery this month. We laughed all the way home while he told me out patient stories. He’s napping now. Mostly I’m looking forward to that twinkle in his 20/20 vision blue eyes.
