“Love is a promise; fulfill it.” ~ Mother Theresa
Today is September 13th – Positive Thinking Day! Thirty-one years ago today my husband and I decided we would commit to each other in marriage and from that day forward I don’t think either of us has spent much time thinking it will not work.
Like many couples we have had plenty of inconsequential differences and life has presented us with lots of challenges over the years, for sure! He, being the athlete with all the principles of dedication that that takes, has stayed the course. I, being the determined cuss that I am, do not give up on matters of heart and soul.
I don’t completely understand his intense love of sports and hunting. He does not fully “get” my adoration for watching the sunrise each and everyday. We value our time together and alone. Never the less, we have managed to work out our differences and remain steadfast and committed.
Our common values in life are what have kept us together for all these years and has made our married life fulfilling. He is slightly more undeviating than me in political views, but, we are very much on the same side of the political spectrum. Our opinions on parenting and raising a family were almost in sync and we both highly value loyalty, responsibility, doing the right thing, honesty and integrity. We are both, I would say, optimists and waste little time letting ourselves be dragged down.
Happy Anniversary to Mo chuisle mo chroí ! I am positively, positive that my wish is to continue my fulfilling journey through life with you. And I know you would wholeheartedly agree that the best thing that has come out of our pledge to each other is our son, who means the world to both of us.
