The Art of Marriage (Being the Right Partner)

A good marriage must be created.
In the art of marriage the little
things are the big things…
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say, “I love you,”
at least once each day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
lt is having a mutual sense of values
and common objectives;
lt is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that
gathers in the whole family.
It is speaking words of appreciation and
demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is in giving each other an atmosphere
in which each can grow.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and
the beautiful.
It is not only marrying the right partner,
It is being the right partner.

I found this written on a little card that Cheryl picked up somewhere. She had it wrapped in a handkerchief, inside a mask, inside a rubber band in one of her little punding collections in her purse. I found it hunting for her black comb which seems to disappear often into the purse of many pockets.

It spoke to me.

Carpe Diem.
