When Books are Written by Rabbits

"Do you think she remembers me?"

"Oh, she remembers. She will remember your heart when men are fairy tales in books written by rabbits." - The Last Unicorn

One fear I've been seeing a lot of this past week on Facebook boards has been, "What if he/she doesn't remember me when they get back from deployment?"

I've never worried about that for a second.

While we have no great love affair with deployments, it gives us the gift of time. Sure, we stay very busy, but there isn't a breath that's taken for granted.

It's so easy, in this work-a-day world, to take each other for granted. The media certainly doesn't help. Most shows are all about winning over the girl/boy, but those that show couples who marry and DON'T come to resent each other are few and far between. In fact, the Cosby Show is the last one that sticks out, and that was in the 1980s!

I'm sure there are others (I don't pretend to be up on current trends in TV land) but it's really just something that I thought I'd share. Our marriage isn't perfect. We have our hiccups and areas to work on. And we probably will until we die.

But forget about each other?! Ever?!


I wish I had the magic ingredient to pass on to others, or some profound words of wisdom, but I guess we live off a heaping dose of faith... and it doesn't hurt to like each other too. ;)
