Well, let me tell you about MY marriage. Today marks the fifth anniversary of saying “I Do” to my husband Eric. It’s been 1826.25 days… how do we get a 1/4 of a day? Ask Eric, he’ll explain it. It’s been 43,830 hours, it’s been 2,629,800 minutes AND 1.577e+8 seconds. That’s a lot of time.
Now here’s the truth. We go in to marriage hopeful, marrying our best friend knowing that and excited for the possibility that lies ahead. There are trips and travels. The struggle of being a step-parent, the struggle of being a parent. There are ups and downs, there are harsh words that should never be nor never have been spoken. There is sadness and pain, the loss of a pet, the loss of a family member. Marriage isn’t always pretty. This is not a Hallmark Channel movie.
Now here’s MORE truth. In spite of ups and downs and more ups and downs, there is no one that supports me more than Eric. He endures my crazy… some times, it’s with ease, and sometimes it’s not. But… he always does. I hope, honestly do, that he feels the same way about me. Because I want to be his biggest fan and greatest supporter.
So here’s to Marriage. Let me tell you about marriage… my marriage. It’s worth everything. So this weekend I will celebrate 1.577e+8 seconds of life with Eric and our family and look forward to the next… 1.577e+8 seconds.
