Honey, never let the sun set on your anger. Make up before you go to bed that night. Treat every day with your love as if it might be your last. Give FIFTY PERCENT (if both give 100% both feel like they are carrying the whole load. Lean on each OTHER. That’s what marriage is about) and Above all… LOVE her and (this is key) allow yourself to BE loved. You do not ALWAYS have to sing. Sometimes love is found in the silences BETWEEN the notes.
I don’t generally just publish quotes, but this came from a woman who is celebrating her 60th birthday with the woman she loves and has been with since 1984. It’s a comment from an article on the Huffington Post last week and was one of the only non-cynical ones there was. The quote is from the commentor’s mother.
