It’s been a bumpy, happy, funny and whatever else kind of road there can be including the long and winding road of a marriage. There are no magic potions to a happy marriage–basically no two are alike. When people are asked what makes a marriage work there are many different answers. Some people say they married their best friend. They say he’s the Ying to their Yang. They say they are the pieces to their jigsaw puzzle. They say they never go to bed angry. They say a lot of things. After 36 years I can say we have gone to bed angry. We had to go to work the next day! I will tell you though the one thing that we have done each night and each morning for the life of the marriage–we pray for each other. He prays for me, and I pray for him. I’ve even prayed on the anniversaries that he has forgotten. We know that prayer works.
On this anniversary we are still praying because we remember “thisis(our)yourbestyear”.
