You know, you have to marry the right person.  Because that person is going to change you.  You will either harden against them or soften towards them, but you will be changed, one way or another.  So make sure they are the person you want to be the most influential in how you change.

I regularly feel incredibly blessed to have married someone who has changed me for the better. And I am very thankful to God for bringing Aaron and I together, and for giving me the grace to be willing to change alongside him. 

Life is more fun when you enjoy the person you're stuck with committed to, so it really is best to figure out how to live with each other.

And by "committed" I don't mean institutionalized.  
Marriage is fun.  Or at least it can be...  If you're each willing to change to accommodate the other.


  1. I really enjoyed this Wanda. It Brought a large smile to my face today!

  2. Love it! And it's all so true. Enjoying every second of the fun!
