If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.” F. Burton Howard
I stumbled upon this beautiful quote a few days go and I thought I had to share it with you! Isn’t it a wonderful and inspirational description of marriage? I simply love it and couldn’t agree with it more!
Yes, I want my marriage to last forever and I will treat it with more care, attention, and love than anything else.
I will shield it and protect it and I will never abuse it for my selfish gain, or that of someone else.
I will not expose it to anything that could harm or damage my marriage.
I wll not make it common or ordinary, but instead special, exciting, and different.
I hope it never becomes tarnished, but if it does happen, I will exhort myself to polishing it until it gleams like new.
It is special and precious because I made it so, and it will become ever more so with each passing day.
I’m sure you want the same for your marriage ❤ I hope this inspires you!
