victories – from 11 aug 2010

25 Jan

i taught an intro lesson to a man named bob the other day.  he’s 80 and lost his wife of 51 years a couple months ago.  he seemed to suggest that they had their differences, but what he said was that they had a great life.  they did, however, have to work hard for it.  i said that not everybody does work hard for that.  he said that was a tragedy, because great marriages aren’t made in the good times, they are made in the fights and the victories.  i’ve never heard it said that way, but it makes total sense.  we all know i’ve had enough fights with nate, and the victories of those fights led us to marriage.  here’s to the victories!
