Today is our THIRD wedding anniversary!
It's insane to think we have already been married for three years. On the flip side, our relationship history is so much longer and more involved than our three brief years of wedded bliss. I pray we have decade, upon decade, of additional enchanted, rapturous, and feisty (who wants to be boring and always get there way) martial jubilation.
Of course, since I am a quote junkie, below are a few reflections on love and marriage.

"The most imporant thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."
~ Theodore M. Hesburgh

"Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost."
~ Kaleel Jamison

"Love is a choice you make from moment to moment."
~ Barbara de Angelis

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - excerpts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:12-13

'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. - Leviticus 19:18
