13 Pieces of Wisdom From 20 Years of Marriage

Today my husband and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Looking back over the last twenty years I have a mixture of emotions. On one hand it feels like I literally blinked and twenty years flew by. It feels like we are still young newlyweds waiting for or real life to start. On the other hand I look around our home and see that is obviously not the case! We are definitely twenty years older, and sometimes we may feel twenty years wiser! Our marriage has produced two amazing children and if we both leave this earth tomorrow and they are our only legacy then we did okay by this world. READ MORE

    7 Reasons Having A Sick Husband Is Like Having A Sick Child

    Last week, late on Thursday evening, my husband started complaining that his stomach hurt. I should have seen red flags when he asked for Pepto to take, and willingly took it.
