Marriage. Marriage is what brings us together today. Marriage, that blessed arrangement, that dream within a dream.
This past week I wanted to share a little bit about mine and David’s marriage. We were celebrating 23 years of marriage and rather than blow past it like we normally do, I wanted to pause and say thank you. I wrote a sweet little post about the Gift of Marriage. It was a little on the syrupy side. If you know me at all, you know I’m not syrupy. I can’t pull off saying words like “honey” or “sweetie”. Also, I wanted to be truthful. I never want to write one way and live another way. So, I wrote the next post, The Dark Side of Marriage. Think of those two posts as two sides of the same coin.
Well that second post seemed to resonate with lots of folks, either that or they just loved the title. I’m not exactly sure why, but it was shared and read by way more people than is typical in my little section of the bloggy world. So it seems that many of us can relate to the joys and struggles of marriage.
For today–let’s laugh a little about marriage, watch this clip from Princess Bride…heck…pop some popcorn, snuggle up on the couch with your
honey true love (laughing as I type the word honey.. I can’t even type it) and watch the whole movie.
I’m sure I’ll be writing more about marriage….it feels like I’ve opened a can of worms…Thank you friends for the comments and messages on Facebook yesterday.
