No need to quit…

Dear ones,

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook.

Don’t quit!

This is what I have leaned about every successful anything I have had. Just keep going.

Success at anything is more dogged determination then anything else.

Couples who walk life long commitment know this. Stubborn commitment to staying nurtures the type of love that lasts….Tree Love as I like to call it.

For couples so eager to call it quits and throw in the towel on your relationship because everything isn’t ‘perfect’…here is some food for thought. Lifelong commitment is not what most people think it is. It’s not waking up every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It’s not cuddeling in bed until both of you fall asleep. It’s not a clean home filled with laughter and love making everyday. It’s someone who steals all the covers, and snores, it’s slammed doors and a few harsh words at times. It’s stubbornly disagreeing and giving each other the silent treatment until your hearts heal, and then forgiveness. It’s coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you in spite of and because of who you are. Its laughing about the one time you accidently did something stupid. It’s about dirty laundry and unmade beds. It’s about helping each other with the hard work of life. It’s about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud. It’s about eating the easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at a late hour because you both had a crazy day. It’s when you have an emotional breakdown and your love lays down with you and holds you, and tells you everything is going to be ok. And you believe them. It’s about still loving someone even though sometimes they make you absolutely insane. Loving someone isn’t always easy, sometimes it’s hard. But it is amazing and comforting and one of the best things you will ever experience.
If you are blessed to have a wonderful partner in your life, then copy and paste the above, attach a picture of the two of you, and post it!
