I wasn’t planning on writing a post today, but I received an email that made me change my mind.
A week or so ago, I blogged about marital advice that was passed on to me from family and friends, and I pretty much thought that was it. However, a family member sent me a bit of advice today that I thought was important enough to share.
Here’s what she had to say…
When things get tough – and they will – remember the love that brought you together and remember that it is love that will pull you through. Don’t pull away from each other. Remember to stay strong together, and if you do, you can beat pretty much anything.
You see – all of the things I posted about previously are important…date nights, learning to live together, respect, communication, compromise, patience, etc. But, as this piece of advice reminded me, the love that you share is the very thing that will get you to act on everything else. And in a way, I think these words can be applied to any relationship, even the one you have with yourself!
I’m not sure if this one is 100% applicable, but it’s one of my favorite quotes.
