My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage last weekend. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of our mothers, who traveled from home to watch the babe, we were able to enjoy a day and night on our own in the city. It was fun to revisit some favorite haunts from years past, reflect on our decade of marriage, and dream about what lies ahead.
We have been blessed to experience much joy in our time together, and like most couples, we have navigated many challenges. As we reminisced, it was clear that irrespective of circumstances, our joy has been most full and our commitment most strong when we have prioritized caring for one another over looking out for ourselves.
The principle is as true for friends and family as it is for a spouse - and the reminder is well timed as we approach the holidays, with their unique blend of merriment and potential for family drama. As we move toward the final quarter of the year, can you shift your focus to caring for your loved ones and trusting them to do the same for you?
