Grateful Sundays

This week, I am grateful for marriage.

Last night, we watched as our dear friend Fashionista's parents were surrounded by some of their closest friends and family celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.

"Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy, you must have somebody to divide it with." - Mark Twain

Hearing the speeches, and watching the outpouring of love for this couple made me so grateful for the institution and cultural interpretation (too many sociology classes) of marriage.

"We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities." - Jacques Maritain 

I am so grateful that I have a partner (especially one as amazing as Handsome Husband!) to go through life with - someone to hold my hand when things are scary, to talk it through with when things are confusing, and to pop bottles when things are good!

"Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh everyday, ah, now that's a real treat." - Joanne Woodward

Great post! Love the way you wove the quotes in there. You're lucky to have Handsome Husband! Even after being with him for what feels like forever, I still feel the same way about mine. Gotta be grateful for a good guy and a good marriage! :)
