Why Am I Writing This Blog
One reason is to let you know that marriages do last a long time if you take the effort to create a loving relationship and keep that creation going year after year. Sharon and I have been married 39 years. We are still going strong. I want you to know that “statistics” do not mean a thing is you do more than most people around you to create love in your home.
Little things are what make it happen. Sharon and I were in WalMart Wednesday and I saw a rack of beautiful flowers. I couldn’t believe the sign that said $2.97 a bunch. WOW! “Sharon, would you like a bouquet of flowers?” Of course she said yes. Then yesterday I picked her a rose that was on “this side” of the chain link fence where we walk Poky The Dog.
This is even the title of a song, “Little Things Mean A Lot” Read the lyrics at Little Things Mean A lot. Be sure you keep the little things flowing and your relationship will grow and become better with time.
YIKES! One thing! Shopping together can get expensive. Sharon is a fairly frugal shopper, but let me go along with her and that soft cuddly top for her is a “must get”. Yesterday we went shopping for a pair of walking shoes for me and left the store with a cart full of stuff. Without me, Sharon could have bought the shoes and a couple small things and gotten out much cheaper.
Yes, it is fun to go shopping together in spite of the dangers.
