Gift Wrapped Present

I opened my inbox the other day and came across this message. It got me thinking. This year my husband and I will celebrate our 20th year of marriage and 21 years of being together. During this time, we have faced a lot. But this quote got me thinking of how many times did I just leave that gift wrapped and concealed. If someone looked at us, they swear we have a perfect marriage, but in all honesty, we don’t. And if anyone ever says their marriage is perfect than they are lying to you.

Because marriage is hard. Some days you are smiling and some days you are in tears, but you still can’t imagine a life without the other person.  Looking back I never would have thought that my life would have changed when I met my husband. It was one of those love at first sight stories that make you sick. I knew that I would marry him. Although sometimes he does things to make me mad, I never could imagine life without him. I have been thinking about our marriage lately since my mom lost my dad ( they would have celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary today.)

So I am going to start looking at my marriage as a gift sometimes it can be the present that you don’t want at the moment, but then you realize later that this gift comes in handy. So there will be no return or exchanges for this gift well unless Spike from shows up at my door then all bets are off. 😉

So tell me do you see your marriage as a gift?
