Looking for a sign? This is it! The key to a great marriage.

We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary last Friday by going on a 2nd honeymoon. 
This is the sign we saw as we left Ruidoso, New Mexico.  I pointed to it and told Sean, "That's IT!! The key to a great marriage. " He agreed, and we smiled because we knew it was what kept our lives going past heartache that ends other marriages.

Forgiveness is the ultimate expression of love because you are choosing love when circumstances make it easier to hate.    

Perfection is an impossible standard, so forgive your spouse.  Forgive yourself because you CAN decide to make a different choice in the future.

Paul said it right: love is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.  So, if you want the kind of love story that legacies are made of, make forgiveness your standard, and you'll be celebrating anniversary after anniversary.

I love my husband, and I'm so glad he loves me so much that we have made forgiveness our standard.  It makes us look toward the next 10 years with excitement.
