WHAT HAS WORKED FOR US
Brief Reflections On Enjoying 36 Years Of Marriage
© Lee Wise All rights reserved
For some reason or another I had a passing thought today. I
was reflecting on our marriage and I wondered...
"What makes it work"?
We are not perfect, we don't agree on all things, and we
still work through issues even after being married for
nearly thirty-six years.
I didn't spend a lot of time answering my own question.
I did, however, quickly jot down a few ideas about what has
"made it work" for us.
MAKE YOUR OWN APPLICATIONS
You make your own observations and applications.
Apply what I have written to your marriage, mental "Should I
ever marry" list, insights on being a friend -- or
You are creative.
After all, what is relevant in terms of this article is
what is *most* important for you.
Your reflections are the most important reflections.
MORE COULD BE SAID
Yes, more could be said.
This was a quick list, remember?
MY OBSERVATIONS..."WHAT HAS WORKED FOR US"
We share the same core values.
We agree about "what matters most."
We pray for each other.
We *love* all that it means to be a family.
We try to heal, not hurt.
We go on dates -- often.
We work through pain together.
We give each other space.
We are lovers.
Translated, it is your turn.
Your ideas are...
Your insights are...
Your impressions are...
Your applications are...
Avoid pain/create pleasure. For A Beautiful Moment In Time
