Show Us Your Life-Marriage Advice

Kelly at Kelly's Corner is hosting her "Show Us Your Life" and today's topic is Marriage Advice! Something I sort of feel I can do! LOL Maybe not great I am still learning but I am no 100% new at either! :)

This is a picture of Lonnie & I are on our wedding day-this coming Wednesday, July 27 we will be celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary! Hang on......

OMG!!! Can you believe it? Me either!!! LOL Just kidding!! But to be honest a lot of people only gave us 6 months! We sure did fool them.

So, on to advice... Let me say marriage is hard work-flat out one of the hardest things I have ever done and that includes having babies. When we got married our Pastor gave us the best advice and truth be told if more marriages did it there wouldn't be so many divorces. He said in a marriage you have to give 100% because at some point one of you will not be able to-life just has a way of getting in the way. He went on to say that today I may be giving 100 and the next would be Lonnie and so that on any given day someone is giving 100% in the relationship. He said 50-50 never works you have to give the full amount. At first I thought he was crazy but as we put it in to practice he was & still is right! Lonnie & I are a team and when we are both giving 100% we are on fire but even when one of us can't for whatever reason I know that Lonnie has my back and that gives me the time/rest whatever to get back to the 100% and he knows the same!

This was our first Christmas in Hawaii! We were babies!!! LOL

I love this man more today then I did back then and I am so blessed to have a man who loves me-flaws & all!

Happy Anniversary to us! :)
