My husband and I are celebrating 10 years together, so in honor of that, I want to do a mini-marriage series. When I was engaged, some of the important women in my life wrote out advice for me.  It is advice that I still cherish today. I am going to take the next few days to share these letters with you.

If you missed Day 1- Giving (written by my Aunt), you can start there.

When you are ready, head over to Day 2:  Forgiveness (written by my mom)

Next, move onto day 3: Understanding.  (written by a family friend.)

Today is Day 4~ Patience (written by my husband’s mom).

patience in a marriage

Patience is something you must have in a good marriage.  Without patience the calm in a marriage would be out of control.

Patience is when you ask for something to be done and it may take hours or days and anger doesn’t set in.

Patience is when you are in a hurry and your partner is not coming- you were patient and found out that the reason that he was late was because he stopped to pick up flowers for you.

Patience is when you are discussing an important issue and you wait for the other person’s comments to be made before continuing with your own thoughts.  It is a give and take conversation.

Patience occurs when compromises must be made.

Patience occurs when your spouse does something and you don’t understand why, but you are wait and you try understand instead of rushing to conclusions.

If you have patience, you will have a piece of the puzzle for a happy and successful marriage.

“Patience: Partners in a good marriage understand & forgive for mistakes that come from being human.”     “Be Patient- listen to your heart.   It will help you overcome any obstacle.”
