Love and Support

Day 34

Today’s post will be short. I am taking a spur of the moment trip to see my daughter and her family for a few days. As a matter of fact, posts may be short for the next week or so. 😁

It’s the Little Things

Of course marriage is about love, but it is also about supporting each other.

This morning while I was packing, I could hear hubby downstairs practicing the mandolin. We both believe it is important to be actively involved in the creative process. When he told me he wanted to do this I was surprised but so happy for him. He has been taking classes for 8 weeks and I love hearing him progress.

This morning I heard him playing Wildwood Flower. It made me think of my mom. It was one of her favorite songs and one of the ways she measured someone’s ability to play the guitar.

When our daughter called and asked me if I could come for a few days, there was no question other than working out the logistics.

This morning I made lasagne so he would have plenty to eat while I was gone. He cooks most of the summer months, so it’s not like he cannot fend for himself. It’s just a small way I can support him because he has a lot on his schedule while I am gone.

Our love, our support and our family are all integral pieces of this place we call home.

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”
