Someone gave me this poem for my bridal shower back in 2002.  At the time I thought it was nice, now that I look at it today, it is very true and everyone that is married should live by it.  My husband and I have had our ups and downs, we have gotten through a lot in our marriage, most of which we thought we never could. Getting through the birth of our daughter and her surgery was probably one of hardest things we have ever experienced in our lives.  With lots of hope, faith and love we got through it together.  So give your hubby or wife an extra hug or kiss or both today, let them know you care.  Happy Saturday everyone.
