Day 2500 – What Makes A Great Marriage

Today we celebrate 2500 days together or just about 6.85 years. A lot has happened over those years and I have come to realize that marriage is not made up by years or even days, but thousands, nay, millions of tiny (and some big) choices.

– The choice to wake up, without grumbling, and make coffee for your wife. (Serious shout out to my amazing husband for this!)
– Paying the bills, again.
– Waiting in line.
– Choosing spiritual health over silly entertainment, thus being stronger for your spouse.
– Holding the wife when she’s crying, again….for no reason….again.
– Eating cheap food.
– Making sacrifices so you can live like you want later.
– Giving each other space when it is needed, even though all you want to do is be with the other.
– Working five jobs so your spouse can work at their dream job….even if dream morphs only a few years later (another serious shout out to that awesome Bret person).
– Realizing you’re not perfect.
– Realizing and accepting that you’re a big fat sinner (Thank you Dave Harvey).
– Knowing when to hold on a little longer and sleep a little less.

Bret, Huz, ol buddy ol pal, I can’t wait for another 6.85 rotations around the sun.
