Taking Things for Granted
Taking Things for Granted

Dear Dr. Laura: 

A recent tragedy has struck my family at our core, and if I may, please allow me to teach your listeners something I have learned. 

My husband of 24 years passed away from a brief illness in May. He left me with three amazing gifts; a 14-year-old daughter, a 5 year-old daughter; and a 3 year-old son. Our children are everything to me, and because of them I get up every day, go to work, and try to provide for them the best that I can. 

More than anything I want to convey to your listeners - never take anything for granted. Never talk bad about your spouse; after all you married him/her. Love deeply; take those extra minutes in the morning or at night to hug and to be hugged by your spouse. Intimacy is everything. Give 60% to the marriage, and only expect 40% and you will be well on your way to success. Go to them in times of trouble, not your mom or dad, not your siblings, not your friends; go to him or her. Lean on them. 

If I could wish anything for your listeners, it’s that they find the love that I once had; kind, patient, loving, caring, strong, never wavering. 

My life now is completely changed in every single possible way. 

Blessings to all,
