Love Honor and Respect
The English language is so limited when it comes to the word love - the Inuit have over one hundred words for "snow". Yet, the meaning for the English word LOVE is so limited and love is so broad. It is not surprising that we mis-communicate on this subject.
We never know when love will strike us - sometimes it sneaks up on us over the years and sometimes it hits us suddenly, any way it comes, it is a gift. When combined with respect and kindness, it can last for ever.
Trust is a big part of honor, with love, honor, and respect there needs to be trust for your loved ones. Trust that they always have your best interest at heart, right next to their own best interest.
Show your loved one respect in all things, respect for their opinion, their wisdom, their judgment and who they are as a person. Remember that you married them because you value their judgment. As you walk down this road we call life - you will come to many forks and intersections, remember that their view of the world is valuable to the decision making. Listen to what your partner has to offer and honor that wisdom. Know that you now have someone who you can trust. When you argue about something - ah yes - it can happen. But when you do argue, take a minute to remember that the other persons' opinion is one you value and perhaps the answer is somewhere between your idea and their idea. Most importantly, find a way to respect both opinions.
It has been said that you should always be kind to strangers, because they could be an angel in disguise. Respect the one beside you and treat them well, because they could be your angel on earth.
I love you both and wish you great happiness, may this serve to remind you to Love, Honor, and Respect each other and to find Joy, Passion, and Laughter in every day life!
