A Simple Secret of a Happy Marriage

old-couples-hands

Another one of those tidbits I found rummaging through my files (Click Here to see the all).  Again, who knows where it came from?  In any case, it’s not only cute, but profound.  We all should have a list like this!

Sheila’s List

Sheila and I just celebrated our thirtieth wedding anniversary. Somebody asked her, what was our secret?

She answered, “On my wedding day, I decided to make a list of ten of Tim’s faults which, for the sake of our marriage, I would always overlook. I figured I could live with at least ten!”

When she was asked which faults she had listed, Sheila replied, “I never did get around to listing them. Instead, every time he does something that makes me mad, I simply say to myself, ‘O, lucky for him, it’s one of the ten!’”
