November 2, Mervin and I will be married 18 years. It has been a wonderful 18 years. It has not been without it's ups and downs, and I would be lying if I said otherwise. But I can truely say .."all of the good days out weigh the bad days, I can't complain."
I have been very happily married to this wonderful man. We had a lot of adjustments, (he had his home and house full of furniture, and I had my home and house full of furniture. I had been single 45 years and lived alone. He had been married 27 years and had grown children and 5 grandchildren) but with patience and understanding with each other we've made it.
Someone ask me one day what I thought helped our marriage. Number one was both of us being dedicated to God. Secondly I said, "Learn to pick your fights." Is it worth getting all upset and mad about. Is it worth making him angry also. If he didn't do it right, go fix it yourself.
I appreciate Mervin's dedication to God and the word. I appreciate his prayer life.
I appreciate his love for me.
Thank you Mervin for 18 WONDERFUL years together. You're the BEST.
