#reverb 10; widsom

Prompt: Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?

Oh, what a hard question.  I played some Bejeweled Blitz and watched some West Wing season 1 to help me think.  On a superficial level I would say it would be buying the ceramic heater I have going at my feet.  I'm nice and toasty warm on this rainy, cold night.

On a deeper level this is much, much harder.  I would have to say that the wisest decision I have made this year has been to continue to support my husband, even when I disagree with him or am upset, angry or frustrated with his choices.  We have learned in a very real way how his personal decisions affect us as a couple.

When I took my vows, I promised to be his faithful partner in good times and bad.  I promised to love him unconditionally.  The wisest decision I have made is to keep those vows.  Just as picking up my cross and following Jesus is a daily choice, choosing to keep my wedding vows is also something I choose to do daily.  Choosing to forgive and move on, is the choice I have made.  It doesn't mean it's always easy.  It doesn't mean that I'm perfect.  It means that together we will overcome the difficulties before us and be stronger for it. 


I love to hear your thoughts, so please share! If you know us in real life, please refrain from using our names to help us keep some semblance of privacy.

Also, I ignore comments that only ask for a follow back. The best way to get me to YOUR blog is to leave comment showing that you've read SOMETHING on my blog. Thanks!
