I remember one night Scott and I set up a skeeball game in the kitchen with increasing sized tuperware bowls and a ball of foil. It started out as a game of baseball until one of us knocked over a plant...
Scott picked me up from the train station the other day with a surprise for me. I had a suprise for him, too. I'd brought him home a slice of cake wrapped up in a napkin. He'd bought me a new set of really nice paintbrushes, after he'd seen me get frustrated with the cheap ones I'd been using.
Marriage is hard. It's wonderful and exciting and fun, but it's hard. It's not for the faint of heart. It takes neverending patience and self-control. It's the most selfless institution known to man.
Which is why I am stopping to write this post. So often when times are tough we are quick to forget just how wonderful marriage can be. So I'm calling all spouses (or spouses-to-be) to leave a comment remembering just two special things you and your spouse have done or your spouse has done for you. Let's celebrate, let's party, let's talk about the good times. ;)
On the other hand, let's not leave out our single friends. If you're not married, you've got your own special stories. Leave a comment specifying two special things about how nice it is to be single. Being single sometimes is hard, too, and takes patience and self-control, so let's celebrate your good times, too!
