We've Made it This Far
Today marks my wife and I's two year anniversary, and what a ride it has been. We've had our ups and downs, lefts and rights. BUT, at the end of the day she's my best friend, my numero uno and the best mother to our children that I could ever ask for. I post this in here, not because I'm trying to be a braggart (although I might be just a smidge), it's here for two reasons.
Number one, I can't tell you how often I hear single women both young and old complain about how "true love doesn't exist" or "there's no such thing as a wonderful marriage" but I completely disagree. My wife and I aren't anywhere near perfect, but, we're committed to always working on it. No matter what, we always solve "it" and we always have each other's back. I'm not saying it's a fairy tale, but I will be the first person to tell you that if you expect a fairy tale for your marriage/life, you're setting yourself up for disappointment. In a funny way, the imperfections and how we resolve them are more fairy tale than anything.
Number two is to remind those married couples out there how important using our example is to helping our kids grow up to be great companions. Don't be afraid to be affectionate in front of others, don't be afraid to brag on your other half, don't be afraid to love fully and completely. BUT, don't let your house get dirty. It's not a good idea to run to friends and especially relatives to complain about your other half. Nothing good will come from it. Work together to solve it. We've got to be the ones that prove real love does exist and that marriage is not only a sacred partnership but also a real, loving and happy place to be.
I'm truly blessed.
