Because I'm Feeling Kinda Brave Today...

I decided to take Caffeine Court up on her challenge to come up with a new topic...so here goes...

"What is the best advice that someone gave you and why?"

From a very young age, my parents always told me that I could date who ever I wanted, but I would know when I met the person I should marry when I could see myself growing old with that person. At the time, I thought it was a bunch of silly words that they were using to "control" who I dated.

Well, I didn't listen to that advice and became involved in an early relationship to a man who was "bad news". Good thing that when I finally was able to remove myself from that situation, my parents' advice came back to me. From the moment I talked to my husband, I knew he was the one for me. Not only could I see myself growing old with him, but I also knew that (and this sounds so cheesy) while I was a complete person already, he enhanced me.

We just celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary and are the blessed parents of two beautiful girls. While we aren't trying to hurry up the aging process, we do look forward to aging gracefully together.

That is sooo true how our parents are usually right. Even though we'd rather not listen. Glad you found Mr. Right.

Great topic! I'll have to post on it when I get home from work in a bit.
And that's amazing advice, and so true. (at least I'm finding it to be so) Congrats on your anniversary, that's so wonderful!

Thanks for jumping in, great topic!

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary in July. Congratulations to you.

Now I have some thinking to do, about the best advice I've ever received...hmmm.

I saw you over at Moe's- Let me save you some money - I hope your husband is ok. Go over all his hopsital bills with a finetooth comb and question, question, question whatever the insurance won't pay. Don't just sign on to making payments. I'm medical (cardiac background- but i've been here w/one of my kids. It took 8 months for the insurance comapny to pay up.Once I contacted the insurance commissoner in my state, it got paid in lightning speed.)Keep that in mind.

I will try to remember this when my daughter starts dating. It will not be easy:)
