I had a special visitor in my office today. She's no stranger to me, I eat lunch with her most days. Sr. Lala Pelikan is a nun in our Christian Formation office here at the Diocese. Along with being my lunch buddy she's also knitting me a Virgin Mary prayer shawl for my wedding day. It will be my something blue! So after our lunch in the break room she stopped by my office to look at my bridal portraits (which I can't wait to show you!). Then she passes along this marriage advice:
1) Never keep score. Don't say "well I did it last time" or "I did this so you do that"
2) Never give up on your children. Never say "I've done all I can do", because when you do - that's when the communication stops
3) Never stop praying for your marriage and your children. Because if you don't, who will? God gave you those responsibilities because He knew you could take care of them. So keep praying for them!
I thought this was great advice for this Bride-to-be!
