I’ve been seeing so many great quotes, blogs, lists and pieces of advice on marriage lately, I love it! For me as a mother of a one yr old and three yr old (both super active boys) sometimes I feel like every ounce of energy that I have goes into keeping the three of us
happy educated having fun alive during the day. A good marriage day means that I send out a text to tell my man that I’m crazy about him and I serve him by taking care of his laundry, house, meals, etc. Real communication and quality time together often “have” to wait until I have “more time”. I know you’re laughing right now, because that day never comes! All that to say, I’ve really appreciated these little reminders – deep, silly, fun, basic, profound – to remind me to put more time into this thing that means everything to me. So I compiled some of my favorites so that I can reference them in the future and so that you can enjoy them as well!
Marriage is a lifelong bond that is stronger than your feelings or your circumstances. It’s a commitment to love someone even when they’re being unlovable, respecting them even when they’re not acting respectable and seeing the best in them even when they can’t see the best in themselves.

While I wouldn’t look to this man as a roll model for my marriage, he really hit the nail on the head with guarding your heart! : )

I would love it if you would share some of your favorites! I’ll write again later this week and add the goodies that you share!
