Great Relationships Don’t Just Happen…

My husband and I celebrated our 23 wedding anniversary this year.  We are a happily married couple…we enjoy spending time with one another and away from one another. 

We are committed to our relationship, our family and one another.  Through the years there have been cloudy days and thorn bushes but we have stayed the course and now we are enjoying sunshine and roses.

Great relationships don’t just happen…they require time and attention much like a well-attended garden.  An unattended garden develops weeds that can ultimately kill even the heartiest plants. 

Treat your marriage like the prized garden that it is…pull the weeds as they pop up, check for creepy crawlers that can cause irritations, fertilize the roots and water regularly.  The quality time you spend tending your garden will result in a beautiful display of love and commitment.
