When it comes to love, I did everything you tell us not to!! I dated a man who has a child from a previous marriage. I was engaged after two weeks of dating, pregnant in three months of meeting and married in six months. If that was not enough, we made one more child as fast as we could.
We have gone through so much in our marriage. Life is hard. It's been almost 5 years and already I see patterns in our marriage that if we do not address will make us another statistic. It took all this to realize you were right. I know I cannot fix everything we did wrong, but I can listen to you and re-read your books so I can do the best I can for our family. Every day I will make my husband happy and raise my children to be productive, contributing people.
Thank you for your wisdom... I only wish I had really listened to you better.
