More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse. ~Doug Larson
I find this quote full of truth. Many marriages want to call it quits during difficult times. When the boat begins to rock, we want to bail, but there is always sunshine after the rain. It's walking through the storm that is the difficult part. We're afraid of the thunder or afraid we might get struck by a lighting bolt to our pride or to the heart.
Instead of allowing the storm to strengthen us, we seek shelter from it. We hide. We run away.
It's easier said than done, yes, but I've been there, done that, and have a few t-shirts!
