A Full Life

“Marriage is a decades-long experiment, conducted mostly in private; a test of will in the face of unexpected obstacles.” “You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” Jojo Moyes, a British novelist. 

Could life be fully lived without love? Without commitment? Without obstacles? It wouldn’t be a life. 

To know that through what is now our fifth decade, this woman has not left while knowing me this well. It’s God’s grace alone that kept her here. 

To wed was the most important decision of my life, whatever the hurdles. It turned my trajectories about and led to two, now, adult children. It resulted in a like number of grandsons, with, likely, a few more “grands” on the way. Thank God, what a life.
