One thing that has kept our marriage alive is that we don't wait until May 15th to celebrate our relationship. We find time weekly to steal away somewhere just to spend an hour or two alone with each other. It may be out to dinner, to the shooting range, to Barnes and Noble for cheesecake, or just to the McDonald's parking lot where we gobble down a hot fudge sundae. Our kids have not understood at times, but we have always tried to make sure that they know that our marriage is important to us and that we must maintain it. (And quite honestly it's necessary to survive parenthood and have something left when the all consuming part of parenting is done!) Over the years, I've seen this knowledge bring a certain amount of stability to their lives because it has helped us to stay stable, connected and on the same page.
Love is always worth celebrating. There is so little of it in the world. Take time to celebrate!
