To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on March 2, 2014 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

Marriage is a thousand little things.

It’s giving up your right to be right in the heat of an argument. It’s forgiving another when they let you down. It’s loving someone enough to step down so they can shine. It’s friendship. It’s being a cheerleader and trusted confidant. It’s a place of forgiveness that welcomes one home, and arms they can run to in the midst of a storm. It’s grace.It’s giving of yourself tirelessly down paths you’d never imagine to travel. Through sickness and pain, poverty and loss, it’s carrying the weight of another. It’s being the smile they see in the morning, and the body they hold close at night. It’s pure love. It’s standing together in the face of adversity. It’s riding alongside each other in a battle that threatens to tear down your marriage and seeks to grab hold of your faith. It’s strength under pressure. It’s endless compassion. It’s love.

    All this is true provided it is mutual, unfortunately this is not always the case.

    Very well written.I am married for 40years now and we still love each other. Ofcouse with age priorities change. In todays world it sounds too idealistic. The youth today doesnt look at marriage with the same feelings or intensity S in the olden days. One gets an impression that the institution of marriege is slowly crumbling. Correct me if i am wrong.
