Wifey Wednesday

Things are settling down here at the ol’ homestead. We’re getting back on track after several derailing incidents.

Life certainly has a knack for throwing us some serious curve balls and then just sitting back, waiting and watching to see how we’re going to handle them.

Sometimes I look over at Mr Right sitting there in his recliner and I wonder what life will bring us next. How will we handle the next derailment? Where will we be in 5 years, 10, heck in 1 year?

Sometimes it can be really hard to stay present in the moment as my mind travels and prepares for the next big thing, but then, I stumble upon something that encourages me.

A little something to remind me that it isn’t about what’s going to happen next; it’s not about how crazy life can feel and be; it’s not about who we are right now, tomorrow or yesterday.

It’s about continually working together to grow, support, cherish, honor, and any other lovey fluff word you can think about when it comes to being a couple.

It’s taking the derailments, disappointments, laughter, joy, tears, pain and learning and growing from them.

I’m sure you’re wondering what in the world put me in such a frame of mind.

Well, I happened upon this great little pin from  called

  1. Lovely words you have here. Marriage has to be about companionship because as you get older, it becomes more and more important. I have watched my parents grow old together and can see how companionship is really all you have in the end. The physical side does not last forever, especially if illness sets in. If you do not have something deeper to sustain you, then the marriage will fall apart. My parents are in their late 80s and still hold hands.

    1. I’m sorry for the long delay in my reply (ha ked you know) but I think you make a very valid point Gilly, a marriage cannot be sustained on physical attributes only. One day our ability and our outer beauty will fade and there has to have been something connecting us on a deeper level.
