I remember the very day that I realized that I was falling in love with this man...
We married October 3rd, 1992.
18 years of marriage...
I am so thankful for my dearest Aaron.
I love him so tremendously that there simply are no words to truly express it.
"Perfect harmony cannot be forced in a day, cannot indeed be forced at all, but must come through gentleness and perhaps only after many days. There must mutual adaptation, and time must be allowed for this. The present duty is unselfish love. Each much forget self in devotion to the other. Each must blame self and not the other when anything goes wrong. There must be the determination on the part of both to make the marriage happy and to conquer everything that lies in the way. Then the very differences between the two lives will become their closest points of union. When they have passed through this process of blending, though it may for the time be painful and perilous, the result will be a wedded life of deep peace, quiet joy and inseparable affection."
"Pride must have no place in wedded life. There must never be any standing upon dignity, nor any nice calculation as to whose place it is to make the apology or to yield first to the other. True love knows no such casuistry; it seeks not its own; it delights in being foremost in forgiving and yielding. There is no lesson that husbands and wives need more to learn than instantly and always to seek forgiveness of each other whenever they are conscious of having in any way caused pain or committed a wrong. The pride that will never say, "I did wrong; forgive me," is not ready for wedded life."
"When the wedded life is ruled by love, then the bridal wreath remains fresh and fragrant till it is laid upon the coffin by the loving hands of the one who survives to close the eyes of the other; and the wedding music and the peals of the bells continue to echo in tones of gladness and peace until hushed in the sobbings of sorrow when the singers sing in dirges and the bells toll out the number of the finished years."
J. R. Miller, Home-Making, Chapter 1
Perhaps the Lord will allow us another 18 years together on this earth.
I would be so blessed...
Truly forever honored to be Mrs. Aaron Klause
I love you Aaron.
