HOW TRUE

“In more than six decades together, Albert and Sarah Lewis raised four children, buried one, danced at their kids’ weddings, attended their parents’ funerals, welcomed seven grandchildren, lived in just three houses, and never stopped supporting, debating, loving and cherishing each other. They might argue, even give each other the silent treatment, but their children would see them at night, through the door, sitting on the edge of the bed, holding hands.” Sarah would say, “I’ve had thirty wonderful years with my husband, and I’ll never forget the day we were married, November 3, 1944.”

“Wait….,” someone would say, doing the math, that’s way more than thirty years ago.”

“RIGHT,” SHE WOULD SAY. “ON MONDAY YOU GET TWENTY GREAT MINUTES, ON TUESDAY YOU GET A GREAT HOUR. YOU PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, YOU GET THIRTY GREAT YEARS.”

(Have a Little Faith, a True Story by Mitch Albom)

What a healthy way to look at long term relationships, married or not!

Thoughtfully, Margie
