What is forgiveness? A beginning of a discussion

15 things I've learned in 15 years of marriage

In honor of my fifteen year anniversary today here are fifteen things that I think I've learned over the last fifteen years:

  1. Marriage is the greatest thing I have ever done. My life is incredibly enriched because of my marriage. I am a different and better man because of my marriage.
  2. Marriage is the hardest thing I've ever done. For anyone who has ever been married, I doubt I need to expand on this one at all.
  3. Marriage has taught me the meaning of the word selfless
  4. Marriage has taught me what it means to ask and accept forgiveness.
  5. Marriage has taught me that just because you can, doesn't mean you should
  6. Marriage has taught me that sometimes I love you means sitting holding someone's hand or hair while they puke.
  7. Marriage has taught me what it means to be vulnerable.
  8. Marriage has taught me what it means to dig deeply into the really painful places of our hearts
  9. Marriage has taught me what it means to know you will always have someone next to you, who will walk with you.
  10. Marriage has taught me what it means to have almost nothing but your lovers hand in yours and know that's enough.
  11. Marriage has taught me what it means to have someone next to you, offering to walk beside you while you walk the what you believe may be the darkest days of your life.
  12. Marriage has taught me what it means to have someone walk into a room and take your breath away.
  13. Marriage has taught me what it is like to watch someone grow and succeed and feel like you're succeeding.
  14. Marriage has taught me what it is like to watch someone give you their best and in turn make you your best.
  15. Marriage has taught me what it means to have a soul mate. I know this idea isn't a popular one today but yes, I believe that my wife is my soul mate.
