Bliss x 15

Today we celebrate 15 years of wedded bliss.....hah!

So anyone who has been married more than a week or two knows marriage is not about bliss.

It is completely and totally about choosing to DO LIFE with the strange-cute-frustrating-charming-annoying-loving-silly-relentless-weird person that was made for you.  It is about leaning on each others strengths while forgiving each other for their weaknesses.  It is recognizing that the goal of marriage is to HONOR GOD with this relationship that he blessed us with.

In every marriage more than a week old, 
there are grounds for divorce. 
The trick is to find, 
and continue to find, 
grounds for marriage. 
 ~Robert Anderson 

This union we are in is not quite perfect but is very real.  Real can be so beautiful and so terribly not, regardless, we have learned to do real and I hope to be doing real with this guy until death do us part.
