A lady came in at work today and we had the chance to talk for a little bit. It was so refreshing to hear someone express their love for their spouse. I wish everyone felt this way about their better half. She said:
” My husband died a while ago but I will never forget him. We were married for 35 years. You know marriage is REALLY hard… you go through A LOT of ups and downs but despite all that, the good things just weigh much much more than the negative stuff. It just… makes everything worth it. My husband was a noble man. He was loyal, patient, and very loving. Marriage is a beautiful thing, I tell you. It’s worth it.”
I couldn’t agree more.
