I read Ashley Sullenger’s post Five Years today. It was a great reminder of what marriage and love is truly about. Ashley and her husband lost their little girl a couple years ago to a canal drowning. Because of this, her words seem so impressionable:
[On out wedding day] “look how innocent we were, we had no idea what was in store for us. I am extremely grateful to have had Patrick by my side.”
It should be a reminder to everyone out there, those married, those looking for love, and those loving their way into new marriages. True love is about being there during all of the tough stuff, reinforcing one another, and pulling each other through. Someone once told me, sometimes you have to ‘carry’ the other person through hard times in their life–it’s all you 100%–but what is reassuring is they’ll be there to carry you when you need it.
life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.
