What marriage is all about....

I helped my mom set up her own blog over the weekend and she wanted to post this picture on her website...it is my parents' engagement picture...I know it's so cute to see your parents when they were that young. I was just thinking about what a handsome couple they are and that they've been married for over 30 years now. I am so glad that through all of the obstacles they have faced, they held fast to eachother where they could have easily been persuaded to go down the big D road. And if you do know my parents you know how stubborn both are in their own ways. But I think it's that determination to be loyal and faithful to one another that has kept them going through the years-especially when it wasn't easy. So thanks mom and dad for being a great example of a couple who works on their marriage. Because we all have to work to make it work.

Such a cute picture! I look at old pictures like that, and I think, "They're so adorable!" But I don't know if "adorable" is the word I would want tacking on to my engagement picture.

It seems like divorce is happening more than ever now, and it's so wonderful to have good example to show us that marriage can work, and that we can be happy.
