Good morning all. I have been writing about LOVE BEING A CHOICE.
I am sure a lot of people don’t understand what I mean and I hope I am
explaining myself. You see the world is complicated, and just doesn’t revolve around me. When you are young and in love, all you see is what is in your little bubble world. You are happy, and laughing, and life is wonderful. When the person you love does something you really don’t agree with, you simply put it aside because as the old saying goes “Love is blind.” You have
already chosen without really knowing it. When he asks you to marry him and you say yes it was a conscious choice and when you walk down the aisle, you made a commitment. The honeymoon is exactly what it is called, and the real world has not yet set in. It is only after your freedom from the world and responsibility has to come back that you realize what you have done.
Love is still a choice as you go on your daily routine, work, school, or whatever it may be. That is when you notice the little things like the toilet seat not being put back down, or the toothpaste was squeezed from the middle instead of the end. Yet you chose to go on. You learn to compromise, to give and take, to try to understand each other. You learn to accept the things you don’t like about each other and treasure the things you do.
Even in the most perfect of marriages something can go wrong, and you have to chose, to forgive and forget or leave. Now is when love is complicated and only now do you really understand what love is.
As you have read on my blog, we have had our differences and challenges. We decided to forgive and forget and we have found a deeper love than expected. It was a choice. Life is a lot more complicated than we know, and until we mature and grow old do we even see a glimpse of the magnitude of life.
I hope you will start from page one and read through the years to maybe understand what I am trying to say. Our family has grown and we have had still a lot of ups and downs. My Erik had testicle cancer and is in remission. I now have seven grand children, ranging from the ages of sixteen years to one year. My four children that are married are working to stay that way, and they will tell you it is a lot harder than they thought, but they seem happy with their decision. So I hope you can see that LOVE IS A CHOICE and one of the most important ones that you make. Love and God Bless You, Marie Fostino
