Marriage is wonderful that’s the truth, but at times it can be as appealing as a laundry basket full of dirty clothes, broken toys, broken crayons, and unpaired socks. You have to be crazy, really passionately crazy, to want to ride it out till the end and based on my experience, the ways to keep your marriage strong are the little things that you do on a daily basis and not the expensive dates nor the gigantic baubles that your partner surprises you with.
To keep the love alive in marriage requires dedication and a lot of patience. It isn’t always easy. If someone told you otherwise, they are either not telling the whole truth or still dreaming in cloud nine.
My husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary in 5 months and I have to say that I am mighty proud that we have weathered the storms that came our way through the years. We went on a trip to hell and back but here we are, stronger and still crazy about each other.
I don’t know about you but I’ve been feeling lethargic since forever and today was no exception. It has been days of unproductive existence and I am getting tired of feeling tired all the time. The other day, I woke up from an 8 hour sleep (a rare occurrence) and my body still felt like a log. It has happened. I am calcifying. I decided that I really needed a good stretching so I gathered my strength, wriggled my toes, stretched my arms, rolled over to my side and sighed.
How are you doing?
I know you might be very busy already since Christmas is just around the corner and I can imagine that North Pole is in full swing by now. Letters might have started to trickle in, I know this because my son already sent his.
Do you know that you still owe me that BMX bike I so fervently asked from you a million years ago? Yeah, but let’s forget about that. It was a good thing that you never sent me that gift because knowing what I know about me now, I could have easily just crashed it into a wall or fell off a cliff with it, just like what I did with my neighbor’s bike. Good thing it wasn’t my bicycle, huh?
