love, love

Well, my living room has an air mattress and boxes in it plus some leftover furniture.  We have a bed and a crib and some clothes left, though not much else.  We got rid of a lot at our garage sale on Saturday and we move across town this week.  Crazy (!!!). 

Our anniversary is tomorrow.  Nine years.  We'll be going away soon, but not before this week's move...which will be perfect timing. 

As I went through keep sake boxes, I found a group of 3x5 cards from my bridal shower (amongst other things that kept me reading for hours, which was maybe not the best priority, but certainly fun).  People who came to the shower wrote something about me or advice for marriage.  In light of packing and finding these sweet words, and in light of celebrating 9 years together this week, I thought I'd share a few of these words on marriage throughout the week. 

One lady wrote that she'd been married for 52 years (61 this year then, I guess!).  She wrote, "The best advice I can give you is to always put your husband first.  Love him as yourself and he will do the same." 

I'll start with that.  They must have a sweet marriage.
