Writing a post here for bearbits is a pleasure and often I consider it an ordinary thing. So too was hearing my husband’s mom’s delight in reading about our adventures either in the studio or on the road. I imagine she would have loved Sebastian’s acquisition of his own car! She was one of bearbits most loyal readers.
Now we have to go forward only imagining what her response would be. And I can imagine it. I will tell you why.
A long time ago at my wedding shower, the guests were given an index card and instructed to give the bride (me!) advice for a happy marriage. Hers was as follows:
- Talk everything over.
- Have fun!
- Don’t let the house get to you. If he wants to go somewhere with you, drop everything and GO!
- Don’t wait until you are old and gray to go places you have always wanted to see together; your health may not let you later.
- Have some interests together and each of you have some you like to do with other people.
- Keep your sense of humor!
I found her advice in my keepsake box a few months ago, before she became ill. It was a happy find. And I am happy to know that without even realizing it, for the most part, we have followed it. She was a lovely person; one I am glad I could call my friend.
Now Jay and I and Sebastian will continue to heed her advice. We intend to keep our sense of humor and have fun! I hope you will come along with us for the ride.
love & hugs,
