The winter in Michigan this year has been harsh, with lots of snow and ice. On a particularly wintery day, my granddaughter Ashlee posted a photo on Facebook of her husband Nick clearing snow.
Ashlee wrote, “That’s my man out there. He is clearing our driveway and sidewalks, and did our neighbor’s without hesitation.” She concludes her post by declaring that she would say “I do!” all over again with her husband. What a loving tribute!
Ashlee’s post is a wonderful reminder that maintaining a healthy relationship involves saying in the difficult times, “I do.” She reminds us that in the challenging times, it is helpful to remember our marriage vows, our promise to one another and to God.
Here are some ways you can care for your spouse or significant other, by simply saying “I do!”
“I do remember my promise to you, to me, and to God.”
“I do love you in the bad times and in the good times.”
“I do remember the ways in which you enrich my life.”
How can you care for your spouse or significant other today? Say “I do!” often so your special someone feels cherished and valued.
Here is Ashlee’s post in its entirety, which she agreed to share with Wisdom of the Wounded readers. Enjoy!
