I thought about how many times Tyson and I have painted pictures of what we want to be like when we are older, and wiser too. We talk about being able to play tennis together, well past the age of 60. We talk about what our children will be doing, and how we want to be able play with our grandchildren. We talk about what is most important to teach our children and how we can be good examples to them. We talk about keeping that spark between us alive, and how it takes work to make a marriage successful. We talk about being one of those couples who sit next to one another and can't help but touch- an arm to an arm, a knee to a knee, a hand to a hand.
We are not perfect. We haven't been married for years & years and we can't give the best marital advice because we just haven't experienced everything yet. But what we do know is that marriage is about a special team made up of two people and just like any other team, we need to practice to make it better and better.
We recently read this article about Marriage called "What Happily Married Couples Do" and thought that it offered some wonderful advice that we have tried to apply to our marriage.
I'm so glad that I get to walk beside Tyson, forever.
