While visiting a blog I frequent, Girl Talk, I came across a posting I found particularly inspiring. Often, I'm tempted to become angry when Mark does something irritating, say shaking his legs at night to soothe himself to sleep, then claiming he has Restless Leg Syndrome. *You know I love you babe.* :o) I found this fitting. It's in those times I will definitely have to remember this.
"On her golden wedding anniversary, my grandmother revealed the secret of her long and happy marriage. 'On my wedding day, I decided to choose ten of my husband's faults which, for the sake of our marriage, I would overlook,' she explained. A guest asked her to name some of the faults. 'To tell the truth,' she replied, 'I never did get around to listing them. But whenever my husband did something that made me hopping mad, I would say to myself, 'Lucky for him that's one of the ten.'" Roderick McFarlane, in Reader's Digest, December, 1992.
