Serving your spouse...

This surgery has been a pretty big deal, but it's not without it's joys.  There's something so beautiful about being able to help and serve your spouse in a very personal and physical way.  No nursing staff can care for my loved ones like I can, and what better way to show your love than by doing the unlovely things in a lovely way.  It's a poignant acting out of our marriage vows, a renewing of our love and commitment.  To serve and be served together, to show the weaker spouse that you're going through all hardships together...it's one of the true joys.  What a beautiful thing real love is!

  1. Well spoken. A message much needed in our self-centered world.I agree 100%. It reminds me a little of caring for Grandma and Grandpa. I wouldn't replace it with anything. Love you.
